  • Scale and execute driver engagement initiatives around the region with a focus on putting processes and practices in place that drive meaningful change in partner behavior and satisfaction, and generate significant efficiencies in the countries.
  • Dive into engagement and efficiency city by city to identify underperforming markets, and collaborate with those teams to their efforts to the next level
  • Coordinate and support the roll-out of broader Momentum program initiatives
  • Be the voice of EMEA and liaise with the Momentum and other relevant teams at HQ to inform their program roadmaps to ensure that solutions are being developed to address our biggest pain points
  • Shape the product development roadmap by identifying major opportunities for improvement that can be solved via technical and product solutions and making a data-driven case to the engineering organization to build and implement them
  • Plan budget and manage spend on existing supply initiatives led by the regional team
  • Work closely with stakeholders across the organization - including S&P, other regions, HQ Supply, finance, and product to ensure close collaboration on things like product rollouts, national campaigns, and budgeting

What You’ll Need

  • Strong, demonstrated people management ability
  • Deep analytical and critical-thinking ability
  • Experience setting team strategy, budgets, and plans
  • Demonstrated experience interpreting and presenting data to various audiences; ability to translate quantitative findings into action plans
  • Excellent knowledge of Uber operational tools and processes
  • Very strong communication and organization skills
  • Balance attention to detail with swift execution - we need to do things quickly, and we need to do them well. Balancing those can be challenging, and this should be a strength
  • Willingness to travel across EMEA when required
