About Uber Eats
At Uber, we’re focusing on providing reliable transportation to everyone, everywhere. We set out in 2010 to solve a simple problem: how do you get a ride at the touch of a button? At the time, the idea was unthinkable. Today, we take on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters get moving in more than 600 cities around the world.
We’ve successfully leveraged our ridesharing platform to break into the food delivery space with Uber Eats. Eats has become one of Uber’s fastest growing and most successful businesses, even rivaling its rides business. In under three years, Eats has grown to serve more than 293 cities in 35 countries around the world. and is one of the fast food delivery services in the world.
Eats is also expanding Uber’s footprint to customers beyond the rideshare space. Roughly 40% of Eats customers are new to the Uber app. By the end of year, Eats will be available in 70% of the U.S.
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.
