Amsterdam is the engine room for Uber in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. From operations to engineering, marketing to community support and every team in-between, Amsterdam is a bustling hub of over 800 talented people. The office is a true embodiment of our vision to become a mobility and logistics platform, with teams working across food delivery, micro-mobility, ridesharing, and freight all under one roof. Amsterdam is at the heart of making our dream for better connected and more economically vibrant cities a reality.
Given Amsterdam’s appreciation for multi-modal transportation—think bicycles pedalling across any one of the city’s 1,281 bridges or boats navigating its 31 miles of canals—it’s no wonder that the European city is home to Uber’s largest engineering office outside of the U.S. Opened in January 2015, Uber Amsterdam is home to two core technical teams: Payments and Developer Platform.
With EMEA one of the largest and fastest growing regions for food delivery globally, the cross-functional Uber Eats team is tasked with building the business strategy for the region, solving complex operational problems and developing world class marketing campaigns.
The Operations team in Amsterdam is tasked with managing, optimizing, and growing our business across Europe. From our core ridesharing services, to scaling Uber Eats, to the expansion of JUMP, or moving trucks with Uber Freight, this team is on the front lines of growing our business.
Communications teams tell Uber’s story to the media and third parties: whether it’s transforming how we get around town and the lives of people who value independent, flexible work, or helping to cut congestion in cities by getting more backsides into fewer cars. That’s partly about building lasting relationships with the key news outlets and journalists and about being creative in how we tell our story.
Uber operates in some of the region’s most iconic and complex urban centers. For these reasons, our policy teams partner with local and national policy makers and leaders to ensure cooperation between stakeholders.
Uber is at the forefront of some of the 21st century’s most complex and interesting legal issues. Legal teams in Amsterdam work to support business development on matters ranging from contractual and consumer law to mobility legislation across Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Our Business Development builds strategic and scalable partnerships with third parties to advance the mission and goals of the company. Our Business Development team in Amsterdam works with some of the world’s biggest and best known companies to unlock the value of our business.
Drive forecasting, planning, and analysis initiatives to provide comprehensive financial insight into our business, while pushing to improve efficiency and growth. Our finance team is at the heart of our operations and a critical partner to every member of the Uber team in Amsterdam.
From Uber Eats to ridesharing, Uber Freight to JUMP, our marketing team is tasked with building our brand and business with industry-leading campaigns based on human insights and universal truths.
