DoorDash has been one of the standouts during the pandemic, with its food delivery service becoming a staple for households around the country. The company is getting into rapid grocery delivery and expanding overseas, and it has been paying to attract the right employees for these growing ambitions.
A software engineer at DoorDash can make as much as $250,000 in annual salary, according to compensation data compiled by Insider. A project manager on the growth side can pull in $240,000 a year. And on the business side, a director of sales strategy and operations is paid $265,000 a year.
For DoorDash, these high salaries across technical and business roles reflect the company’s need to attract high caliber talent as it competes against big rivals. On the food delivery side, the company is facing off against Uber, which has been focused on growing its UberEats food delivery business and chipping away at DoorDash’s lead.
And on grocery delivery, DoorDash’s newest business focus, it is competing against Instacart and Gopuff. Both those companies are private and can lure employees with the promise of pre-IPO equity that could be jump in value if and when they go public.
Insider pulled the numbers from thousands of work-visa applications DoorDash filed recently with the US government. Companies are required to disclose salary information, and the salaries must be the same level a US citizen would get paid if they were offered the same job. Stock grants, a major component of how tech employees are compensated, is not included in the data. Nor is experience and its influence on pay.
The following is a breakdown of what DoorDash pays for a wide variety of jobs. Once you’re done, take a look at Insider’s salary database to see how much Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, and other companies pay their workers.
