About the Role
As a Product Manager, you’ll lead a cross-functional team of engineers, analysts and data scientists, own the product roadmap and the direction of the team as the company grows across new businesses and markets around the world.
The role demands a deep background in product management, machine learning, risk management, leadership skills, the ability to operate in a highly technical environment, the ability to do user research and work collaboratively across many stakeholders, and killer puzzle-solving and intuition.
What You’ll Do
Help build sophisticated risk solutions and scalable distributed systems and technologies to enable Uber to grow its business globally
Internalize and deeply understand Uber’s mission and strategies, as well as the mission and objectives of various risk teams and stakeholders.
Distill vision and strategy for the team, get all members of cross-functional team aligned and motivated.
Be incredibly truth-seeking. Heavily utilize data insights, market and customer research, and your product intuition to continually improve your products. Solicit and embrace critical feedback.
Drive a cross-functional team to set qualitative objectives and quantitative goals
Drive innovation, definition, deliverables planning (roadmap) and design of entirely new Uber products and product features to deliver against team and company goals. Requires challenging all members of cross-functional team (engineering, data science, analysts, operations, etc.) to think boldly and creatively and then to funnel that energy into concrete products and execution plans.
Monitor and measure launched products and feed learnings back into product development process.
Clearly communicate product plans, benefits and results to a spectrum of audiences including executives, product teams and other stakeholders across Uber.
What You’ll Need
An undergraduate degree or equivalent in computer science or a quantitative domain plus hands-on software engineering and/or data science experience. Technical understanding must go from the highest abstractions down to the metal.
5+ years experience delivering highly successful products with your fingerprints all over them - you’re extremely proud of what you’ve accomplished.
A high bar across the board - from your own contributions to the people you work with to the products you work on.
A “driver” personality - biased toward action, great collaborator and master disambiguator/simplifier - constantly pushing toward clarity and delivery.
Grittiness. You never hesitate to roll up your sleeves and tackle something hands-on, you persevere when others fall away.
Finger-tippiness with data: you just go get the data you need with no muss/fuss and can whip it into an insightful story with no help. You know how to leverage data to make decisions without getting stuck in analysis paralysis.
User-focused - examples from your past of tough product challenges that you powered through because you were unwilling to make your problems your users’ problems.
True passion for Uber’s mission and the company’s hybrid technology / operations nature.
A never-ending desire to grow and learn.
Bonus Points If
Deep prior experience in risk, security or payments.
