Team Highlights

Global Rider Access

Uber is a truly global company with many of our riders and trips coming from cities outside the U.S. and Canada. Our riders in emerging markets like India, Latin America, and EMEA face very different challenges compared to their counterparts in North America. While smartphones are taking over, feature phones still hold a substantial portion of the market share and mobile networks are congested and unreliable. Uber Bangalore’s Global Rider Access team focuses on solving these problems for our next billion riders so they can have a seamless and magical experience on the Uber platform. Our team’s objective is to develop new technologies to make this vision a reality. Such innovations include: new channels of access like progressive web apps and voice; light, resilient ride requesting flows that work across devices and network conditions; and simplifying and adapting our user booking experiences for the needs of these markets.

Vehicles Platform

The Vehicle Solutions team with Uber Bangalore is developing products to increase our rides supply at Uber by connecting potential driver-partners without vehicle access to vehicle suppliers, while ensuring sustainability for both the driver and vehicle supplier. The team builds deep integrations with strategic rental, leasing, and financing companies to provide a seamless marketplace for vehicle access. We’re on the path to creating a global partner platform through APIs and tools that allow large vehicle suppliers across the world to integrate with Uber at scale, including solutions for real-time offer management, appointment scheduling, reservations, contracts, and compliance management. This team is responsible for building our Marketplace that matches driver-partners with vehicles as well as a way for third-party suppliers to plug in their supply of vehicles on Uber platform.
