About The Role

As a product designer in the Rides Design Studio, your number one job is to tackle user problems.

The role demands bold innovation, obsession with quality, fearlessness, and optimism to be inspired by the unknown!

You will be part of the Rides Design Studio that consists of the Rider design team, the Driver design team, and a set of horizontal product solutions that we call Foundations. You'll work among design-oriented engineers, product managers and outstanding designers in a fast-paced, rapidly growing environment. Our Design teams are focused not only on the functional but also on sparking happiness and delight. Our work ignites opportunity and changes the way the world moves.
