We offer a suite of services, from kitchen memberships to full service operations; serving both local and scaled national partners. DoorDash Kitchens aims to bring new, diverse, and high-quality food options to every neighborhood.

About the Role

DoorDash Kitchens is looking for a people-focused trainer that excels in fast-paced, remote environments and is excited to roll up their sleeves and lead from the front. In this role, you’ll be helping us build our newest licensing model. You’ll administer new Merchant Host training and ongoing Quality Audits for our portfolio of concepts – with the support of our Development Chef and Operations Support team. 

  • New Store Launches Field Training – Work hands-on with our Host Partners to administer training & support in the field, ensuring all managers and cooks are properly executing our recipes and following procedures. 
  • Ongoing Quality Auditing – Perform ongoing Host partnership visits and audits to ensure Hosts maintain consistent high-quality operations.

You’re excited about this opportunity because you…

  • Are passionate about working with people and love to be hands-on training with culinary teams
  • Love helping improve operations and contributing ideas to improve our training quality and onboarding experience based on data and an ever-evolving business. 
  • Are passionate about partnering with restaurants to help grow their businesses
  • Have the ability to perform audits and compile & communicate feedback in an effort to improve culinary and operational quality.
  • Love to build processes, playbooks, and can adjust training materials and methods to accommodate onboarding needs.

We’re excited about you because…

  • You’re self-motivated, positive, and a team player. You work well with others, but also excel in roles with little oversight – relying on your own drive and self-discipline.
  • You’re scrappy. You are willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done whether it’s digging into a new process to determine how best to communicate it to Host Partners or helping troubleshoot a technical issue.
  • You have 3+ years of experience cooking and managing in a high-volume kitchen environment including fast-casual, QSR, and from-scratch restaurants
  • You have 2+ years of experience in a field training or training development role, ideally with a restaurant group.
  • You have a knack for organization and are proficient in Google Docs/Sheets. You are a data-driven decision maker who is comfortable compiling your findings in documentation that can be shared with the broader team.
  • You are willing to travel and be on-site in dynamic restaurant environments
