I’m Gayatri Iyengar and I’m the Director of Engineering, Logistics and Growth, at Doordash. I love building teams, software and products. I have the honor to lead and support some of the most talented engineers and leaders and help transform their careers to pursue their calling.
For the most part, my career has happened to be building marketplaces with multiple participants having different goals. I started my career building algorithmic trading platforms. This meant using technology to bring efficiency, speed and access to our financial markets. From there on I went on to build digital banking consumer apps. I have spent many years in the Logistics, marketplace and delivery space and love the challenges that it lends.
During my downtime, I enjoy creating art, spending time with my family and 2 kids, cataloging the innumerable house plants that I have taken to since the pandemic and hiking!
Ask me about engineering management, building and growing high performing global teams, leadership during crisis/tough times ( I started my career just around the big mortgage crisis and recession so I can share a few stories;) , balancing parenting and a career, or anything else!
