About the Team

Our Merchant Services team lies at the heart and soul of DoorDash, ensuring that we set all of our merchants up for success by providing a seamless onboarding, product catalog, and photo experience.

About the Role

As a Vendor Operations Manager for New Verticals, you will manage service delivery of operational processes run by our global BPO network who provide critical support to the New Verticals Launch & Expansions teams. You will work highly cross-functionally to develop and transition new and existing workflows to vendor teams, and establish new ways to ensure high-calibur work is being returned.

In this role, you will have at least 1-2 direct reports at the Project Manager level, and will oversee 2-4 BPO teams at a global scale. You will report to the Senior Manager of Global Vendor Operations. As of 2024, we expect this role to be hybrid, with some time in-office and some time remote. Some additional travel may be required.

  • You have a 4-year degree in business, economics, or other relevant area
  • You identify scalable solutions across the business
