About the Team

Community Operations (CommOps) is the voice and face of Uber, and its largest org (10k+ employees).

We are also the Voice of the Customer to the Tech/Ops teams.

The Global S&P A&I team is the central Analytics and Insights (A&I) team for CommOps. We have three broad purposes - (1) Own CommOps' data integrity and quality, and metrics definitions and reporting, (2) Inform CommOps leadership's priorities by generating high-value analytical insights, (3) Support CommOps global teams' A&I needs. Our projects are typically broad in scope, which means there is tremendous opportunity to make a huge impact on the business.
