About the role

We’re looking for someone to own the growth strategy and execution for DoorDash in Australia. You'll be responsible for defining the strategy, collaborating with the Australian GM and our internal performance marketing channel leads, and owning the outcomes to drive growth for a critical growth market. You’ll also be responsible for multi-million dollar monthly budgets in a high-impact, highly-visible strategic role that touches multiple sides of our market: consumers and dashers

About you

You'll have a firm grasp on the digital advertising landscape in Australia, are familiar with the local media players, and know the nuances of Brisbane vs. Melbourne, among others. Beyond marketing knowledge, you’ve experience working with large datasets in order to make good decisions. This role will be part of a global team of marketers, analysts, and engineers; all of whom are motivated to grow the DoorDash business within Australia. Your role requires the ability to understand the perspective of a CFO, a product manager, as well as our customers, merchants, and Dashers. Besides hard skills, you have a pleasant disposition, the knack to roll up your sleeves, and are excited by taking on hard responsibilities.

What you’ll do

  • Own the strategy and collaborate to drive the execution for growth in Australia for both consumers and dashers
  • Provide country-specific domain expertise and insights to our central performance marketing channel teams to customise growth strategies for Australia
  • Manage, forecast, reconcile, and plan how to allocate a multi-million dollar monthly budget across all paid growth activities
  • Collaborate with product management and engineering to build solutions that solve problems unique to the Australian consumer and dasher markets
  • Work closely with analytics to measure the effectiveness of paid growth initiatives and devise measurement plans for high-risk, but high-impact marketing programs
  • Build processes to quickly identify shifts in performance and communication plans to operators in each of our local Australian markets
  • Partner with senior operations leads in Australia to define the growth strategy

We're excited about you because you'll have

  • Mid/ Senior level experience in a highly analytical, data intensive and/or strategic role
  • Proven ability to prioritise and execute tasks in a fast-paced environment
  • Demonstrated ability to leverage analytics and work with complex datasets to understand performance, optimise campaigns, drive decision-making, and measure outcomes
  • Experience managing, or deep understanding of, paid customer acquisition channels with an eye towards discrete, measurable targets (marginal CPA, CAC, LTV, etc)
  • Comfort and experience with quantitative marketing analytics, budgeting, forecasting, scenario planning, and test-and-learn methodologies
  • 2+ years experience in Australia marketing, strategy or operations 
  • Positive, upbeat attitude
  • Relentless focus on improvement

Bonus points

  • Experience in managing large consumer marketplaces
  • Interest and passion in on-demand logistics
  • Quirky interests - we think different, we act different, we are different; that’s how we win
