About the Team

The Uber Marketplace is designed to move riders & drivers efficiently from where they are

to where they want to go. Every dollar that is transacted in the Uber Marketplace (driver

forecasting, dynamic pricing fares, matching driver/rider pricing, and overall marketplace

health) is informed and influenced by data – and our Product team decides the algorithms

that enable millions of earners and consumers to ride, deliver, eat, and move daily.

Uber operates an Open Marketplace – it’s open to everybody who wants to make a living.

You can drive whenever you want, wherever you want, and however you want. We offer

broad access to work, and we expand mobility for riders. The freedom and flexibility that

this affords is hard to understand, until you actually try it. We understand that connecting

people to places and opportunities has real-world consequences, and that’s a big

responsibility. Our principled approach to marketplace design helps us live up to that

responsibility.

We encourage people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future

where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion,

and collaborative spirit, come work with us, and let's move the world forward, together.
