DoorDash CFO Mike Dinsdale has left the company less than a year after he joined, TechCrunch has learned. The food ordering and delivery startup is actively looking for a replacement.
“Over the past year, Mike helped us build out the finance team and improve our financial planning process,” a DoorDash spokesperson told TechCrunch. “We thank him for his contributions and wish him all the best.”
Dinsdale, who joined DoorDash last October, has been gone from the company for a couple of months, according to a source familiar with Dinsdale’s situation.
In the last year or so, DoorDash settled a $5 million class-action lawsuit over its use of independent contractors to perform deliveries, partnered with Starship Technologies to test delivery by robots and acquired delivery and logistics platform Rickshaw.
Before joining DoorDash, Dinsdale served as CFO at DocuSign. He is now gearing up to join Gusto, formerly known as ZenPayroll, as the company’s CFO.
“There are few companies that have been able to grow at the exceptional rate that Gusto has, while continuing to provide a product that customers love,” Dinsdale said in a statement to TechCrunch. “I see this opportunity to help take them to the next level as the best job in the tech industry. I’m excited to join an amazing team with a mission-driven mindset.”
