Uber is looking for sharp, highly motivated individuals to join our US & Canada Rides Operations team. If you love setting a vision, managing cross-functional stakeholders, pushing projects forward to deliver measurable and strategically meaningful results, and solving problems from both 30,000 feet as well as deep in the details, this is the role for you.
Travel is in many ways the heart and soul of Uber. Trips to and from the airport account for around 10% of total US&C trip volume and almost 20% of gross bookings, and the overall percentage of ground transportation at airports fulfilled by Uber is quite small. Airport trips are many riders’ first use case, and these trips have higher average fares and a higher mix towards more profitable products. But “travel” can encompass much more than this - it could be the experience of using Uber in a new city or relying on Uber when on the road for business, trips between cities that substitute for a train or a rental car, and ultimately travel experiences that Uber doesn’t touch today. In 2016, domestic travelers spent $836.6 billion in the US, representing an attractive opportunity for a company that’s such a natural part of that market today.
The ideal candidate for this role should have strong analytical skills, experience managing a team, excellent time-management and organizational habits, and the ability to clearly communicate and present information to seek buy-in.
