An alternative to traditional driving jobs

Driving with the Uber app offers a flexible earning opportunity. It’s a great alternative to driver jobs or seasonal employment. Or maybe you’re already a rideshare driver and want to supplement your income by becoming a driver with the Uber app.

Drivers who use the Uber app come from all backgrounds and industries, setting their own schedule to make work fit into their lives, not the other way around.

Uber offers opportunities in all major cities in New Zealand, including Auckland, Dunedin, Queenstown and Wellington—plus other locations across the country.

Earn on your time

Whether you want to work morning or evenings, you can always make it work.

Set your own hours

Unlike traditional jobs, you decide when and how often you work. Work as much or as little as you want.

Get paid fast

Your earnings are deposited into your account every week. And with Flex Pay, you can cash out your earnings once a day.

Get support whenever you need it

If there’s anything that you need, you can reach us anytime 24/7. We offer in-app and phone support to all our driver-partners.
