We’re changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago we were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now we’re a part of the logistical fabric of more than 600 cities around the world. Whether it’s a ride, a sandwich, or a package, we use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.
For the people who drive with Uber, our app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, we help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer.
And that’s just what we’re doing today. We’re thinking about the future, too. With teams working on new modalities, self-driving cars and even urban air transportation, we’re in for the long haul. We’re reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.
The Risk Mobile team plays a crucial role in our mission to weed out the bad actors in our system while ensuring powerful, intuitive and frictionless user experiences for our customers (riders) and partners (drivers, restaurants, freight companies). Our continued obsession for innovation in the mobile space is essential to enable Uber’s phenomenal growth globally as we expand into new linesof business.
