Join Uber Elevate

Uber’s Elevate team is developing an urban aviation ridesharing product called Uber Air. A network of small, electric eVTOL aircraft (Electric Vertical Take-off and Landing), will enable rapid, reliable transportation between suburbs and cities and, ultimately, within cities. Starting in 2023, Uber customers will be able to push a button and get a flight on-demand with Uber Air in Dallas, Los Angeles, and a third international market.

We're exploring ways to overcome barriers to make this a reality. Learn more about open roles and opportunities to join the team and bring aerial ridesharing to life by 2023!

Open roles

The Engineering Manager for Airspace Systems and Elevate Cloud Services will focus on our new initiative to create Uber’s airspace services for Elevate flight operations. We collectively refer to these future services as Elevate Cloud Services (ECS).

On-demand aviation has the potential to radically improve urban mobility, giving people back time lost in their daily commutes. Just as skyscrapers allowed cities to use limited land more efficiently, urban air transportation will use three-dimensional airspace to alleviate transportation congestion on the ground. A network of small, electric aircraft that take off and land vertically (called VTOL aircraft for Vertical Take-off and Landing, and pronounced vee-tol), will enable rapid, reliable transportation between suburbs and cities and, ultimately, within cities. These vehicles will be managed by a highly automated set of complex services called the Elevate Cloud Services (ECS). We are looking for someone to own product management for the Elevate Cloud Services, based in San Francisco/Palo Alto.

The first product manager for urban drone delivery will focus on our new initiative to deliver food for Uber Eats through the air, providing food on-demand faster and more reliably than ever before. The candidate will, in short order, establish and begin executing Uber’s cross-functional short and long-term plan towards urban, scaled drone delivery.

The Aviation Safety Manager is responsible to the Head of Elevate for providing guidance and direction for the planning, implementation and operation of Uber Elevate’s safety management system (SMS). The Aviation Safety Manager will be responsible for establishing and managing Uber’s SMS framework consisting of; Safety Policy, Safety Risk Management, Safety Assurance, and Safety Promotion. The Aviation Safety Manager provides SMS-related services to all areas of the organization that are included in the SMS (certificated, non-certificated and third-party).

Responsible for producing the standards, procedures, and training for UAS operations while reducing operational risk. Set the framework for Uber’s aviation operations with a mindset for scalability.

Responsible for managing flight test requirements development and definition, identifying and mitigating program safety, security, schedule and cost risks that support Uber’s cargo food delivery concept. Ensure alignment on all flight test activities required to meet performance requirements as identified by Uber’s strategic objectives.

The Human Factors Engineer - Airspace Systems will focus on our Uber Aviation initiatives to fast forward to urban aviation. Specifically, this person will focus on our initiative to create Elevate Cloud Services (ECS) at Uber including airspace systems with local and global Operations Center interfaces.

Uber Elevate is our urban aviation initiative to fast forward to ridesharing in the sky (https://www.uber.com/info/elevate/). The Sr. Backend Engineer will be responsible for developing core backend systems and services for the Uber Elevate Network.

The iOS engineer will focus on developing applications to understand and improve the operation of Uber’s airspace systems for UberAIR (passenger-carrying) aircraft and potentially Drone Delivery operations. These tools will be used to visualize and interact with hundreds of thousands of (one-day, autonomous) aircraft data and for simulation of the various scenarios.

Responsible for the operational flight testing of various UAS aircraft in order to provide data and analysis for validation and requirement verification. Test, iterate, and improve procedures for operational UAS testing to meet Uber’s objectives.
