Giving a Voice: Meet the 2022 Australian Dasher Community Council Members

Every month, thousands of Australians dash to make extra income or support other passions. Dashers know the delivery experience better than anyone else, and their perspectives are vital to improving dashing overall.

We believe it’s important that Dashers have an opportunity to share their observations and opinions with DoorDash directly. One way we learn about improving the delivery experience is by connecting with groups that represent the unified Dasher voice across the globe.  DCC Australia members are not only passionate and motivated, but are also representative of the rich geographic, cultural, and experiential diversity of Australian-based Dashers.

Getting to know the DCC

The Dasher Community Council (DCC) is a representative and diverse group of Dashers that provides feedback to DoorDash on important Dasher topics like app functionality, new features, and a broad range of other issues affecting Dashers. Since launching in 2021, the DCC has acted as a sounding board for ideas, ensured ongoing engagement in the Dasher community, and helped brainstorm solutions to common Dasher challenges. The DCC operates at the national level in the United States, Canada, Australia & New Zealand.

Every half year, we invite  Applications from Dashers across the country to join the DCC.

The Dasher Community Council meets every month with key members from the DoorDash team to discuss specific topics or anything that's top of mind. Members of the DCC are awarded Top Dasher status for life and their role is to give their opinion of new features or programs that the DoorDash team is working on. Lately, the DCC has been pivotal in improving the overall quality of our platform in order to provide Dashers and Customers with the best experience. 

We're pleased to introduce the third cohort of the Australian Dasher Community Council, whose term started in July 2022 and will end in December 2022.
