About the Role

Travel is in many ways the heart and soul of Uber. During pre-COVID business conditions, trips to and from the airport accounted for around 10% of Uber trips across the US and Canada and almost 20% of gross bookings, and the overall percentage of ground transportation at airports fulfilled by Uber remains quite small. Airport trips are many riders' first use case, and these trips have higher average fares and a higher mix towards more profitable products. At Uber, we recognize an opportunity to help positively shape the travel experience for riders around the world! The Uber Airport Ops team is obsessed with driving excellent airport experiences for our customers and works to be true partners to airports.
