  • User identity verification and fraud detection
  • Consumer identity verification
  • Surfacing new signals of risky users

In this role, you'll lead a team of operators and work cross-functionally to ensure excellence in our current identity validation processes, as well as to see around corners and anticipate future challenges and opportunities in the identity space. This team is focused on setting up Uber for our next wave of growth by evolving and modernizing our current operations.

In this role, you will need to have a solid foundation in data analysis, demonstrated ability to design processes and define success criteria for programs, and a passion for designing experiences that enable users to get and maintain access to the Uber platform.

  • Improve Processes: Identify operational and structural weaknesses in existing processes, or help develop new processes to improve efficiency while optimizing for funnel conversion and cost reduction
  • Program Management: Define what success looks like for our Platform Access operations and work with Data Science to build dashboards that measure both system performance (i.e., products are working as intended) and operational performance (i.e., how well are we meeting established business requirements)
  • Product Relationship Management: Manage the relationship with the identity, screenings and risk identity teams. Work very closely with the product teams, influencing the product agenda, providing compelling data and business cases to ensure US & Canada's most relevant tech requests are prioritized
  • Vendor Management: set the foundation for how our teams engage with our identity vendors. Areas of focus: joint success planning; scorecard to manage operational success
  • Build Relationships: Interface with other functional areas (Finance, Product, Business Development, Public Affairs, Legal, Engineering, Central Operations, etc.) to ensure we are bringing all available tools to bear on our toughest problems

Basic Qualifications:
