Our Design teams are focused not just on the functional, but also on joy and delight. Our work ignites opportunity and changes the way the world moves, and we design for users around the world of all backgrounds and abilities.
About The Role
As a UX Writer, you'll work on the Product Design team to build intuitive, resonant experiences for the people who use our apps around the globe, while helping grow the UX Writing function at Uber.

You will be part of the Rides Design Studio, which consists of the Rider design team, the Driver design team, and a set of horizontal product solutions that we call Foundations.
