About the Role

Expanding the opportunity for drivers to partner with Uber is at the core of what we do - it's igniting opportunity and ensuring equal access to the Uber platform. At Uber, not only are we fundamentally changing the need for car ownership for riders, but we're disrupting car ownership for drivers, too. We believe that car ownership should not get in the way of becoming an Uber driver partner, and facilitating the right vehicle option for drivers is critical to our growth efforts across the globe. Beyond all this, the global automotive industry is changing - fast - and Uber is poised to influence and benefit from emerging trends. In particular, we are looking to address and grow electric vehicles on Uber.

You will be part of the newly-formed global team that will oversee our Vehicles business and strategy. The primary focus for this team in 2019 will be developing and executing a clear and cohesive strategy to unlock a step change in vehicles growth and decrease the barriers for potential new drivers. Your specific remit will be to evaluate, shape and execute on Uber's strategy for electrifications across the ecosystem (OEMs, fleet managers, financiers, infrastructure, access).

We are looking for an exceptional and experienced individual to shape and execute on our electrification strategy.

What You'll Do

  • Support the vision and strategy for the Vehicles team (specifically shaping the electrification strategy)
  • Develop holistic strategies in close partnership with product, operations, marketing and business development leads to ensure a consistent global approach while adapting to local nuance
  • Serve as a coordinating / focal point for leaders in each region around the world, helping facilitate close partnership with HQ teams
  • Shape how Uber interfaces with the auto industry when it comes to electrification needs across the world
  • Examine industry trends and innovations
  • Internal knowledge sharing and education to bring relevant stakeholders up to speed on electrification

What You'll Need

  • 8+ years of entrepreneurial, management consulting, investment banking or operating experience in high growth environments
  • Experience working across geographies, delivering projects that cut across many different departments
  • Strong analytical and critical thinking skills, and a demonstrated ability to problem solve in a new and unfamiliar environment
  • Self-motivated, ability to work independently, with strong organization and time management skills
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Industry experience with electric vehicles, batteries or infrastructure
  • Familiarity with the vehicle OEMs, vehicle rental, and vehicle lease industries a plus

This role will be based in San Francisco, and will report to the Interim Global Head of Vehicles.

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.
