About the Role
At Uber, we believe technology has the power to make transportation more efficient, accessible, and safer than ever before. Self-driving technology has the potential to make these benefits an everyday reality for our customers, but it's not going to happen overnight. Building best-in-class self-driving technology will take time, and safety is our priority every step of the way. Operating inclusively and transparently, while displaying responsible behavior in a structured development are critical to safety. We at ATG seek candidates who will role model these values.
As a Design Program Manager for ATG you'll be a part of a multi-disciplinary team of product managers, product designers, user experience researchers, and brand expression designers, helping to shape ATG-wide projects and programs that shape GTM experiences and the community and culture of product and design at ATG. You will play a key role in enabling the product and design team to do great work by working with stakeholders and gathering their requirements, to helping plan new projects, to managing the work progress through the creative process to final deliverables. You’ll be responsible for end-to-end execution of large scale programs, from strategic planning stages through creative implementation. In addition, you’ll help shape ATG’s product and design community through a variety of programs around design craft and inspiration, product and design reviews, external community talks, and social events. You’ll build awareness around product and design’s work through a variety of communication channels (e.g. newsletters, emails, website, etc.) to help socialize our work across the organization.
The Product & Design Program Manager is a creative problem solver and team leader by nature, and is an expert at creating efficiencies in the design process, improving team communication, and enabling teams to stay focused on delivering amazing experiences. People love working with you because you make everyone’s life easier and always know the status of every project. You are great at fostering a welcoming community and culture that is unique to ATG’s product and design team’s needs. The right person will be comfortable in an "all hands on deck" environment, able to operate and coordinate across multiple teams, and can thrive in a startup culture. This is a full-time position in our Pittsburgh office.
