Manager, Strategic Finance - Market Management

DoorDash, San Francisco, CA

On-demand delivery empowering local economies

About the Team

DoorDash is building a world-class team that will drive the financial and operating strategy of the company. As a leader on the Strategic Finance team, you will use your financial expertise, analytical horsepower, and operating mindset to set performance targets, track and improve results, and iterate on the business strategy daily.

This is a complicated, fast moving business. There are a thousand moving pieces, all of which have different potential explanations. The Strategic Finance team is the financial forecasting and reporting foundation of our business across all business lines of the P&L. Through this lens we push the business forward through strategic planning, high impact business case sizing, go to market strategic thinking, and rigorous reporting frameworks. We are the primary finance complement to the operating teams and together we are taking DoorDash to the next level. 

About the Role

DoorDash is rapidly expanding into new geographies. The current DoorDash company P&L is an amalgamation of every country, city, state, and every zip code. DoorDash’s commitment to the local business is embodied by our desire to get to the lowest level of detail. Our financial diligence and operational understanding extends to every street corner on the platform. The Market Management function is tasked with being the financial stewards of those geographies, to understand them, and report on their successes and failures. This is the perfect role for the person who doesn’t like index funds but prefers the individual stocks themselves, someone who cares about the little guy, and who knows that the devil is in the details.

You’re excited about this opportunity because you will…

  • Analyze financial data to understand differences, draw conclusions, and devise solutions for DoorDash to succeed across a diverse geographic landscape
  • Partner cross functionally to recommend actions and present insights across all lines of business and all lines of the P&L through S&M to ensure DoorDash is a market leader in every city
  • Drive strategy at a geographic level
  • Report on progress and recommendations directly to the leadership of the company

We’re excited about you because…

  • 4+ years experience in business strategy / analytics, growth strategy investment banking, or other analytically-intensive portfolio optimization based roles 
  • Advanced Excel & financial modeling skills.  
  • You’re able to build robust financial models used throughout the company
  • Size opportunities and build business cases for pursuing new initiatives
  • Basic SQL proficiency or willingness to learn
