Head of Product Design EMEA

Design
in Amsterdam, Netherlands

About the Role

Our Product Design Studio is part of Uber's fast growing Engineering hub at Uber's EMEA HQ. The Studio is working on a wide variety of global challenges, and is setting the vision for several of our apps.

As the leader of the studio you will be responsible for growing the team, (help) define the local culture, define processes, cooperate with other studios around the world and be the senior stakeholder for the various product charters.

You'll work among design oriented engineers, product managers and some of the best designers in a fast-paced, rapidly growing, hybrid (technology/operations) environment.

We are highly user-centric and we deeply believe we can innovate our way out of any box. The role demands great execution, bold innovation, obsession with quality, fearlessness and optimism to be inspired by the unknown and never settle, solving problems with creativity while keeping the user in mind and ambition to take projects to the finish line.

What You'll Do

You balance moving fast with strategic decision-making

Uber ships fast. You know what quality looks like and how to help product teams ship at that quality with minimal effects on velocity.

You demonstrate holistic leadership, both the How and What

You help designers become the collaborative glue that inspires product management and engineering, while also building their core competencies and work quality.

You hire world-class talent

You are an inspiring leader with great network. You're able to build the process for you (and others) to effectively assess and hire designers and researchers who can take Uber to next level.

You're a multiplier for the entire team

You improve the entire design and product teams, not just your direct reports. As a leader and example-setter, you should be more effective when you're not even in the room. Your processes will be celebrated, emulated and copied by teams throughout the organization.

You build strategic relationships

Your design team trusts you. The people on your team feel like they can discuss any challenge with you. Product managers and other stakeholders approach you for an advice. You add value to Uber Design community on a global level.

What You'll Need

  • 10+ years in product design field. Experience in mobile environment is a plus.
  • 3+ years in managing or leading design teams and the ability to build, mentor and motivate teams
  • Excellent communication and analytical skills that help you to quickly adapt in a new dynamic, cross-functional environment
  • Bonus points for an inspiring portfolio!
