DoorDash Engineering expanded to New York City in 2019, to focus on building products to help the company deliver quickly and reliably in highly dense delivery markets while using machine learning models to adapt our existing logistics platform to handle the challenges of urban geographies. Nearly three years later, our small team of engineers has grown and new charters have taken root in our Manhattan hub, and our teams now cover many aspects of the customer experience. The New York office offers the opportunity to join some of our largest and most impactful teams at DoorDash.
The Consumer Verticals engineering team is building new products to help DoorDash bring the local community to user’s fingertips. Whether that is delivery of retail goods or alcohol, or going beyond delivery into nearby discovery, pick-up, or dine-in, the Consumer Verticals team is creating the entrypoint for local communities. This team is central to DoorDash expanding our business beyond basic food delivery.
Operational Excellence engineering in New York City comprises two teams - Delivery Experience, and Fraud/Identity. The Delivery Experience team is responsible for ensuring that every delivery is a perfect delivery, with a money back guarantee.

The Fraud/Identity team fuels healthy growth across the company by ensuring bad actors stay out, and that we uphold the trust and safety of our platform.
