Interview with Radhika Bhalla

Design Leadership Interview at DoorDash

Hi Radhika! What do you do at DoorDash?

Tell me about your background:

It’s always interesting to hear the stories of people who had a different start from their current career. How did you become a UX researcher?

What was your career journey like after school?

Having been a researcher for a decade now, what is your own ultimate career goal as a researcher?

Now you’re in DoorDash as a Head of Research. We’re very lucky to have you join us. I’m curious what’s been unique about DoorDash that you didn’t experience in other companies?
