Brent Seals’ Career Journey at DoorDash

DoorDash is committed to increasing on-demand access to the best of your neighborhood, from a favorite restaurant’s locally-sourced meals to store-to-door delivery of convenience and grocery staples to hand-crafted treats from a local bakery or a corner pet store. Throughout the past year, we have continued to expand our offerings…
Accelerating Our Momentum
By all accounts, 2018 has been a breakout year for DoorDash.
We grew 250% YOY — more than tripling our business — to become the fastest growing last mile logistics company in the U.S., according to Edison Trends.
Our geographic footprint nearly doubled since January to more than 1,000 cities across the U.S and Canada. We’re on pace to reach 2,000 cities by the end of the year, serving 200 million Americans.
Leading the industry in selection, we added more top 100 restaurants to our platform than all other industry players combined, including national favorites like Chipotle, IHOP, Red Lobster and White Castle, while signing exclusively with The Cheesecake Factory last month.
Building on the incredible momentum of DoorDash Drive, we announced a national grocery delivery partnership with Walmart that has now expanded to nearly 300 stores in 20 states in the last four months.
Last week we debuted the DashPass subscription service and Pickup feature to generate even greater value for our merchant partners, while driving stronger loyalty among our customers with lower prices.
Through Project Dash, we saved over 30,000 pounds of food to combat food waste.
We grew our talented team by over 250 people in offices across the country, and welcomed key executives, including Chief People Officer, Sarah Wagener and Chief Financial Officer, Prabir Adarkar.
To help us capitalize on this momentum, we are excited to share that we have closed $250 million in a growth round co-led by Coatue Management and DST Global, valuing the company at $4 billion.
As we grow, we will stay true to our values and our mission of connecting people with possibility — and, trust us, we’re just getting started.

Standing Strong With Vegas
As Las Vegas has been working to recover from the events of October 1, those of us here on the DoorDash Las Vegas team have been working to support the community in our own way.
Together with our restaurant partners, we are delivering meal donations to victims, first responders and others that have been impacted by this tragedy. For example, this week we teamed up with Streets of New York Pizza to donate meals to more than 1,000 families and volunteers at the Family Assistance Center in the Las Vegas Convention Center. We’re also working with Opportunity Village to identify other communities that may need food and other supplies.
We’ve set aside resources to continue to support the community with meal donations. If you or your organization is in need of meal donations, please reach out to us directly at [email protected] If you’re looking for other ways to help, please visit the Las Vegas Victims Fund.
From all of us on the DoorDash Las Vegas team, we’d like to give a big thank you to Opportunity Village and Streets of New York Pizza for your help in the relief efforts so far. And to the Las Vegas community of Dashers, customers, restaurants and everyone else in the city, we stand #VegasStrong with all of you.
