At Uber, we ignite opportunity by setting the world in motion. We take on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters get moving in more than 600 cities around the world.
We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let’s move the world forward, together.
About the Role
Map data and services are the lifeblood of Uber, underlying every single experience on the platform — from specifying the locations of passengers/cars/food, to estimating travel times, to calculating fares based on time and distance. The Maps team supplies the As, Bs, and A→Bs that allow Uber to move things around in the real world.
The Maps team has a substantial presence in the Boulder office, and we’re looking for a seasoned Product Manager to lead the team, including management of both people and projects. Additionally, you would serve as the Product Site Lead for the Boulder office overall, helping to attract talent and additional company investment at the site. We have big goals to grow Boulder far beyond “just Maps,” and you’d play a pivotal role in helping to make that happen.
What You’ll Do
Own the existing Maps projects at the site, which span everything from infrastructure and storage engines, to computer vision augmented reality experiments, to real-world imagery collection efforts and the map data corrections that they enable.
Grow the Boulder site by facilitating the extension or transfer of more Maps projects to the site.
Grow the Boulder site by seeking out and negotiating investment opportunities from other (non-Maps) product areas at Uber, to help diversify the site’s project portfolio.
What You’ll Need
Bias toward action, collaboration, optimism.
Data-driven: you always get the data you need, and you can distill it into an insightful story. Most importantly, you leverage data to drive strategic decisions.
Technical skills: Ability to inform and evaluate engineering decisions.
User focus: Passionate about making the user experience positive. Unwilling to allow product challenges to impact users negatively.
Assertive but diplomatic: The site lead role requires someone who can represent the site as a whole externally, with presence and confidence.
Excellent influencing skills at all levels in the organization, acute flexibility in a dynamic, ever-changing environment.
You’ll make Uber a great place to work, as a leader and a manager.
Organized, self-driven, able to operate independently.
Bonus Points If
Prior experience in GIS or map-related products/fields.
Prior experience as a remote site lead, and/or experience interacting with cross-site tech teams.
Prior experience actively shaping an inclusive and positive culture for a growing tech team.
About the Team
Uber’s vision of transportation like running water, reliable and always available for everyone, relies on knowing where our users are and where they are going. Knowing the world with complete detail is critical for Uber - from alleyways where the rider needs to be dropped off to ensuring the best pickup-dropoff points for offices, malls & airports. The Maps team works on a range of complex (and fun!) problems and to deliver the best-in-class maps designed to make the experience with Uber magical.
At Uber we don’t just accept difference—we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of our employees, our products and our community. Uber is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status.
