Lead Product Manager, Vehicle Tablet Experience

About the role

The focus for this role is using in-vehicle tablets to engage riders by providing them contextually relevant information, functionality, and content to improve their overall experience. In-vehicle tablets improve the Uber driver experience as well, increasing driver earnings through increased tips generated from the in-vehicle tablets as well as sharing in a portion of tablet advertising revenue.

What you will do

In this role, you will oversee all of the product and technical aspects of scaling this new vehicle program. You will define the product vision, strategy, and roadmap for vehicle and tablet technical integrations, our riders’ tablet experience (features, functionality, content), hardware and service strategy, and driver acquisition and engagement. You’ll have a strong hand in developing early product-market fit for this program for drivers, riders, and partners, and then scaling the program across current markets and then globally.

You could be a strong fit for this role if you:

  • Are highly independent and proactive. You don’t wait to be told what to do or given permission to act. You independently identify what needs to be done for you and your products to be successful, and you take the right actions to get those things done, either yourself or through others.
  • Are recognized as a great communicator. You obsess over continually improving your communication skills and use the right blend of narrative, logical arguments, and data to communicate effectively to diverse audiences including executives, internal and external partners, or your teammates.
  • Act as an owner. If something goes wrong, you display ownership by fixing it or getting someone else to fix it. If something goes right, you forward the credit to your team or partner teams.
  • Are equally at home at strategic or tactical levels. You are experienced and senior enough to craft and socialize product strategy effectively, but still relish getting in the details of requirements, implementation, user experience, or operational data.
  • See ambiguity as opportunity. You don’t need things to be calm and organized. You don’t shy away from a challenge. You get fulfillment by tackling areas of ambiguity, creating a plan, marshaling resources, and spurring execution. You recognize that not all problems can be solved quickly or completely, and persevere even in the face of obstacles.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science, Information Systems, Engineering, Business Management or equivalent
  • At least 6+ years of experience as a product manager with a track record of partnering with engineering, design, data science, and business functions to deliver successful projects at scale
  • Experience in defining objectives and key results (OKRs) and tracking key performance indicators (KPIs) to achieve them
  • Excellent data analysis skills and data-driven decision-making ability, with a high design bar and a mentality of starting with the customer first and working backwards
  • High attention to detail and proven ability to manage multiple, competing priorities

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Domain experience in Connected vehicles or devices, digital/video content, or advertising technology
  • Experience working with distributed hardware assets
  • Experience working on consumer-facing technologies at scale
  • A true passion for Uber’s mission, our products, and the company’s hybrid technology/operations nature
