Join Uber Elevate
The Uber Elevate team is working to develop an urban aerial ridesharing product called UberAir, a network of small eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) aircraft, with the goal of enabling rapid, reliable transportation between suburbs and cities and, ultimately, within cities. Planned for 2023, UberAir will allow riders to tap a button and get a flight in Dallas, Los Angeles, and one international market.

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 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).
