DoorDash, from an intern’s perspective

On my first day, I walked into DoorDash HQ expecting the typical orientation — long talks, heavy technical training, and tons of meetings. And while yes, I did eventually get all of that and more, little did I know I’d be leaving as fast as I had arrived, receiving orders, bouncing from restaurants and delivering ...

Why I Joined DoorDash as a Software Engineer

For those of you that don’t know me, I’ve been writing blogs about preparing for technical interviews and about my startup. I ran a computer science club that helps engineers prepare for technical interviews and participated in Y-Combinator’s Startup School. Because I stopped working on my startup, I needed a (real?) job so I applied ...

My Engineering Internship Experience at DoorDash

These represented the company’s values and I have to admit the first time I read them, I was confused. Of course, I knew what the words meant individually, but ...

DoorDash Hackathon V: A Recap

Back in DoorDash’s earliest days, when the only employees were our three co-founders, the entire platform could be considered a “hack”: it featured a static website with a phone number where customers would call in to place orders. This skeleton team had few tools at their disposal beyond pen, paper, and elbow grease. Since then, we’ve ...
