What We Look For

  • A passion for building businesses, not features.
  • Design sensibility and customer obsession. A deep understanding of and appreciation for good design and user experiences.
  • Strong data-driven prioritization skills. You find a way to get the data you need and whip it into an insightful story with no help. You know how to leverage this data to make decisions without getting stuck in analysis paralysis.
  • A "Do-er" mentality. You are biased toward action, a great collaborator, a master disambiguator/simplifier, and constantly pushing toward clarity and delivery.
  • Strong communication and partnership skills. This will be an extremely cross-functional role, with stakeholder teams potentially spanning multiple offices globally.
  • A true passion for Uber's mission, our products, and the company's hybrid technology/operations nature.
  • A never-ending desire to grow and learn

We're changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago we were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now we're a part of the logistical fabric of more than 600 cities around the world. Whether it's a ride, a sandwich, or goods, we use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.

For the people who drive with Uber, our app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, we help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer.

And that's just what we're doing today. We're thinking about the future, too. With teams working on new mobilities, self-driving cars and even urban air transportation, we're in for the long haul. We're reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.
