I'll be starting at DoorDash relatively soon, and I was wondering what 1 on 1s I should set up on top of the one with my manager. More specifically, are there meetings I should make recurring vs. 1-time ad-hoc? For context, I'm an iOS engineer.
When you're new to a company (especially at a senior level in your case), you should be "trigger-happy" and talk to people even if there's a good chance it doesn't become a deeper relationship. Two reasons:
On the topic of recurring vs one time, I'd start with one time. It'll become obvious who are the people you should be talking to more regularly, and in general I think it's a courtesy to check with people before setting up a recurring meeting with them (has things out like duration + frequency).
For my non-manager 1:1 recurring meetings, I usually had them be biweekly for a 3 month period. Finally, I'd also talk to your manager and ask them who they'd recommend you chat with.
Wanted to share a few resources that we added since the time this question was asked:
