PALO ALTO, U.S. -- DoorDash is advertising for a general manager position in Japan, signaling the U.S. delivery leader is preparing to set up shop in a country with an expanding, yet largely untapped, food delivery market.

The San Francisco-based company said it is seeking talent to "play a pivotal role" in building their business in Japan, according to an ad posted on LinkedIn this week. The listing comes as Japan has declared or is preparing to declare a state of emergency in various cities, and citizens are asked to stay at home.
