Head of Community Operations - Uber Eats Japan

Community Operations
in Tokyo, Japan

About us

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 500 cities around the world. Whether it's a ride, a sandwich, or a package, 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 autonomous trucking and self-driving cars, we're in for the long haul. We're reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.

At Uber, providing amazing support that establishes trust within our community--across riders, driver partners, UberEATS customers and delivery partners--is a core feature of the Uber user experience. We're obsessed about providing the highest quality service executed in the smartest, most efficient way. And for Uber to continue its growth and success, we need to be able to not only improve but also scale our fast-growing support operations.

We're looking for a Senior Community Operations Manager to develop and lead efforts to build, operate, scale and improve our customer experience and support operations for Japan Eats. Based in Tokyo, this managerial role comes with a heavy focus on leading teams, solving problems through data analytics, steering cross-functional discussions, delivering stellar operations outcomes, continuous process improvement and being customer obsessed.

  • A lover of process and optimisation. You will be revolutionising support for the Uber community. You're excited about the opportunity to create and experiment with support processes, and are willing and able to lead others in iterating and implementing them.
  • Data-driven and analytical in mindset. You can look at any spreadsheet and know the right questions to ask to get to actionable outcomes. You know how to explain data in a compelling way to get buy-in from your key stakeholders.

You can design the right solution for the right environment, and have the diligence to follow through, win stakeholder buy-in, and deliver the desired outcomes.
  • A brilliant communicator. You're eloquent and able to strike the perfect tone, whether you're explaining a new policy to riders, or explaining the recommendations of a data-driven study you conducted to regional stakeholders.
  • A natural leader. You are passionate about leading and developing teams to perform at the highest levels while maintaining a fun and collaborative environment.
  • An advocate for the customer. Incredibly empathetic and understanding of restaurant, driver partners and users alike. You will be a powerful advocate for UberEATS' users and are obsessed with the community experience.
  • Naturally curious. You love learning how things work and you're always looking for ways to innovate. You enjoy testing different support strategies and tracking the results.
