Reimagine what it’s like to work at Uber Japan
7 members of our local team share what it's like to work at Uber in Tokyo, a favorite benefit, and their most uniquely Uber experience.
Out of this world! Uber Eats makes our first food delivery to space
We are proud to share that Uber Eats made our first ever food delivery to space. Expanding our global footprint beyond earth’s surface has been a longtime dream and we are thrilled to partake in a small piece of history. We teamed up with entrepreneur and delivery superfan, Yusaku Maezawa, to hand-deliver beloved ready-to-eat canned Japanese dishes to the astronauts at the International Space Station.
What makes us Uber
Movement, in all its forms, is fundamental to life, to freedom, to opportunity, and to the communities we serve. And we get to reimagine it: how do we make it more efficient, more affordable, more accessible, more magical? We get to build and look ahead, but we have to live in the real world and all its complexities and nuances. It’s a challenging task, but it’s what makes us different—and makes us Uber.
What it’s like to be an Uber general manager
The people involved in it all—from business strategy, to marketing, to legal, and everything in between—are Uber’s General Managers. Read more about our chat with Saskia de Jongh, our Regional General Manager for Uber Eats across all of Asia Pacific, about her role, how she prioritizes, and why you should join the team too.

We face some of the most complex and high profile legal issues in the world. No day is the same, and the legal issues we tackle are just as varied.
