About the Role
At Uber, we pride ourselves on the amazing team we’ve built. The driver behind all of our growth, our brand and the game changing technology we bring to market is the people, who also make Uber an extraordinary place to work. Delivering a first class, on-demand meal delivery experience has created new competition in cities around the world that have not seen significant innovation in decades.
