A new food delivery service is set to arrive in Australia and could challenge UberEats and Deliveroo.

DoorDash is already a huge success in the United States and is valued at around $10.5 billion.

Although the company has not yet confirmed if and when they are launching their Australian business, it is currently advertising for a senior recruiter, head of business development and recruiting coordinator on LinkedIn.

All the positions are based in Melbourne where the business is expected to be based.

DoorDash’s website is also searching for restaurants to sign up.

One advertised position states: ‘DoorDash is looking for top-talent to help build our Australian business from scratch.’ 

The food delivery giant has not confirmed anything about the launch.

A spokesperson told the Sydney Morning Herald: ‘We’re continually assessing new opportunities to achieve that mission, and don’t have any news to share at this time.’ 

DoorDash were slammed earlier this year after it was revealed they were taking tips intended for drivers.

However the company’s founder Tony Xu said they are changing the way they their ‘dashers’.

‘I announced last month that we’d be changing how earnings and tips work on DoorDash. Since then, we’ve been working with customers and Dashers, testing our new model and getting feedback to improve it,’ Mr Xu tweeted.

‘Dashers will earn more money on average – both from DoorDash and overall.’

He said all customer tips will be an extra dollar in dashers’ pockets and customers can tip before or after delivery. 

‘Dashers will continue to see the order details up front, including their guaranteed earnings, so they can make an informed decision about which deliveries they want to accept,’ he wrote.

DoorDash operates in 4,000 cities across America and was founded in 2013.
