Program Manager, Transit Applications

Program Management, Product in San Francisco, CA

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

 

Uber is looking for a sharp, highly motivated individual to join the Transit team. As the Uber Transit team partners with more transit agencies globally, we are looking to create a application response position to rapidly respond to upcoming opportunities. We are looking for a strong writer who loves public transport and is knowledgeable about the complexities of pitching for government contracts.

 

The Program Manager for Transit Applications can expect to interface with central and local Sales, Business Development, Policy, Operations, Account Management, and Product teams to ensure that transit proposals accurately reflect the latest Uber Transit content and thinking. This role requires an individual with a diverse skill set that ranges from precise writing, to project management, to public speaking. You must be a deadline driven team player, who is willing and excited to work with cross-functional stakeholders. The Application Specialist will become an expert in all aspects of the Uber Transit products — from first-and-last-mile offerings, paratransit services, to Uber’s vision for the future of transportation.

 

This role will ideally be based in our San Francisco, CA office and may require travel.

  • Working with Account Management, ensure that key elements of the proposal are translated into contracting and product launch processes.
  • Limit risk by ensuring we operate in accordance with internal and external legal and business standards.
