After graduating from UC Berkeley with a B.S. with High Honors in Industrial Engineering and a MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business, Xu worked as a business analyst for McKinsey & Co., as a corporate strategy consultant for EBay and PayPal, in business development at technology firm RedLaser, and spent time at Square before founding DoorDash.
