About the Team

The Communications team tells the story of how DoorDash empowers local economies by connecting customers to the best of their communities. The team is a collaborative group with important partners, touching every corner of the organization. A roll-up-your-sleeves attitude, meticulous attention to detail, and out-of-the-box thinking, coupled with a true team spirit and the ability to juggle projects and priorities, are what makes this group so effective. A role on this team will require expertise in media relations, policy communications and issues management.

About the Role

  • Own the Social Impact communications workstream and report to the Head of Public Affairs.
  • Develop, manage and execute communications programs to help amplify the work of the Social Impact team that is focused on finding ways to leverage our technology and resources to partner with and support the communities we serve.
  • Help shape DoorDash’s strategic narrative, working closely with the Social Impact and broader Policy team to advance our policy and business objectives.
  • Assist in the development and planning of Social Impact initiatives, collaborating with cross-functional teams to best leverage the public affairs function and ensure successful launches and implementation of various projects.
  • Develop media engagement strategies and enhance our relationship with essential media and influencers at the national, state and local level by telling the story of how DoorDash partners with and supports local communities.

We’re excited about you because…

  • You have 7+ years experience managing and executing PR and strategic communications campaigns and working with national and local media to help elevate brands and advance business objectives.
  • You have experience working on corporate social responsibility and community impact initiatives, and ideally are familiar with the tech space and related issues.
  • You’ve demonstrated cross-functional leadership, taking ownership of communications programs and building strategic plans in a complex organization with varied priorities.
  • You have excellent people and project management skills, with the ability to lead and manage multiple time-sensitive projects under tight deadlines.
  • You are a master communicator, inclusive of listening and speaking, and a true leader, collaborator, and consensus builder.
  • You’re a self-starter, intrinsically motivated but also a good teammate.
  • You take your work, but not yourself, seriously—and maintain a good sense of humor about both.
