  • You're a builder at heart - you dream big and start small when it comes to business and people leadership and are an owner of deal strategy, job competencies, lead segmenting, and the other key pieces of infrastructure that allow your team to succeed
  • You're comfortable with ambiguity - goals will be aggressive and infrastructure shaky; in the face of uncertainty you truth seek to find problems and show a bias for action to marry those problems with solutions
  • You are DoorDash first - you work well with others under the one team one fight mindset and choose optimism on solving pain points in our sales and service of top local grocers

  • Perform: hitting selection goals is the key to success in all of our new verticals. We operate under a quarterly Objective and Key Result (OKR) system; it's the responsibility of our Senior Manager of Pre-Sales is to drive the team's performance into the green each quarter, surface the voice of the market, and ask for what is needed to get the team back on track when headwinds set us back
  • Collaborate: Beyond leading your team, it will be your responsibility to help your cross teams across Merchant Strategy, Sales Ops, Sales Planning, HR, Recruiting, Finance relate to the pain points of our merchants andS Sales Reps. Without obsessing over this pain, we will not move as quickly as we need to to remain empathetic to the needs of our customers
  • Motivate: the key input to success is our people. The chief constraint on hitting selection goals is doing so while building a high morale team
