About The RoleAs a Product Operations Manager for Uber Direct you’ll play a key role in helping businesses of all sizes use the power of Uber delivery to get their products delivered to customers at high scale and speed!In this role, you will be a hub for bridging product, operations, and business and solving problems that lie at their intersection. It requires an ability to problem-solve strategically, bring stakeholders together and craft globally scalable processes that enable high-velocity product and business impact within a complex organization. What You'll DoThis is a representative sampling of the responsibilities you will be tackling together with the team you’re leading:
  • Design planning and insights gathering processes from various business partners globally to ensure product strategies are advised by on-the-ground, locally relevant information
  • Own the entire go-to-market strategy and execution for the various products we launch. Where should we launch, how, and when will be entirely up to you
  • Help product teams understand business insights and design scaled processes that let teams hear and dive into the voice of the customer
  • Own the efficiency of the product stack: identify and improve areas where the product development process lacks velocity, transparency, or effectivity
  • Work with various operational teams to unblock product development and rollout, but also adapt our global products to local contexts
  • Drive the program management of highly complex areas that require many collaborators to work in concert to achieve a business result, including marketing, legal, finance, customer support, operations, sales, business development, and many more
  • Build transparency around product work, maintain strong communications across various teams, and align collaborators around core objectives and key results
Basic Qualifications
  • Minimum 4 years experience driving successful programs and bringing clarity to complex areas of collaboration, areas that ideally have a heavy product footprint

  • Excellent communication. You are able to advise, educate, influence, and persuade at various levels of the organization, both in written and verbal form
  • Attention to detail. The ability to obsess over every single part of a process, at scale
  • Customer obsession. The ability to take on complex product challenges and find elegant, simplifying solutions to avoid making them our user's and partner’s problems
  • Finger-tippiness with data. You find a way to get the data you need and whip it into an insightful story with no help. You know how to enhance this data to make decisions without getting stuck in analysis paralysis
  • A “Driver” mentality. You are biased toward action, a great collaborator, a master disambiguator/simplifier, and constantly pushing toward clarity and delivery
  • A true passion for Uber’s mission, our products, and the company’s hybrid technology/operations nature
  • A never-ending desire to grow and learn
  • SQL proficiency
