Why Business Development at Uber?
We advance & accelerate Uber's vision
In alignment with Uber’s strategy, we work to create maximum value for the business by investing in relationships and deals that will have outsized and lasting impact.
We build long-term relationships with customers
We have multiple customers — our users, partners, internal stakeholders and shareholders — and invest in those relationships to create long-term value for all parties.
We bring and continue to develop our unique skill set
We are storytellers, dot connectors, business shepherds, and creative problem solvers. We empower and help each other to become more effective and well-rounded with every deal.
Meet the team
Chief Business Offer, EMEA - Global BD
“As a woman in the tech industry who has been part of multiple organisations and teams, I have benefited from companies and teams that have valued diversity and inclusion and seen the difference within companies and teams that don’t.
I have grown in my roles by focusing on the impact we are trying to create in the world and my role within that, even when I had doubts; feeling the fear and overcoming it."
Jr. Business Development Associate, LATAM - Global BD
“Working in Business Development at Uber allows you to leverage the company's cross-functional culture to develop multi-effort projects that can have a significant impact on our riders, drivers, and partners.
Moreover, being in contact with people from different cultures and backgrounds allows for a much richer learning and development experience.”
Sr. Director & Head of Business Development - Eats BD
“I’m a big Bo Schembechler fan and his famous ‘The Team The Team The Team’ speech sticks in my head when I think about the Uber Everything BD team.
We work on the highest impact business opportunities and have great fun while doing it. It’s that rare combination of meaningful work and meaningful relationships that gets me so pumped to come to work everyday.
And the fact that I can bring my whole self — and sometimes even my three kids — to work makes the team feel like a family.”
Chief Business Officer, International - Global BD
"I get to see our BD teams across the world work tirelessly to significantly move the needle for Uber as a platform by driving some of the most creative, long-term, win-win commercial constructs I have seen over the course of my career.
We are out in the field, close to the action, externally oriented and building institutional relationships with the most important organisations in each of our geographies, simultaneously dot connecting internally to maximise impact at scale — no two days are the same."
Sr. Business Development Associate, APAC - Global BD
“Uber makes big bold bets, and the BD team is at the forefront of defining how we go to market and structure some of our global strategic projects, like payments, airports, new mobility, etc. I really enjoy the diverse, cross functional nature of the work and the ability to experiment, succeed/ fail, learn, and scale these initiatives."
Sr. Business Development Associate, EMEA - Global BD
“For me, success is best when it's shared. After joining the Business Development team two months ago, I feel a rare combination of technical skills, solid leadership, and amazing energy to connect, think and have things done. We are built in a dynamic and diverse way, positively working together internally, to then spread the magic externally."
Business Development Manager, US&C - Global BD
“Over the last handful of years, I’ve had the great fortune to work alongside many talented teams as we've launched and scaled our businesses together. What I enjoy most about our global group is the unique position we have within Uber to bridge operations, product, pricing, research, marketing, and partner integrations to deliver meaningfully better experiences to customers across the world. Uber has fundamentally changed how cities move and how people and things move throughout them, but I think we're just getting started; the BD team will play a critical role in shaping our future. ”
