Uber Overview

About Uber

We’re changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago we were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now we’re a part of the logistical fabric of more than 600 cities around the world. Whether it’s a ride, a sandwich, or a package, we use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.

For the people who drive with Uber, our app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, we help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer.

And that’s just what we’re doing today. We’re thinking about the future, too. With teams working on autonomous trucking and self-driving cars, we’re in for the long haul. We’re reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.

Job Description

About the Role


The UberEATS Marketing Manager role is a unique opportunity to help grow one of Uber’s newest services: UberEATS, which is in the process of expanding in a big way. UberEATS is looking for a highly analytical marketing manager who can take charge of the customer story for UberEATS in the Midwest while meticulously unpacking the key growth levers for our business. This is an intense “startup-within-a-startup” role, and as a part of the team the right person will be comfortable in an “all hands on deck” environment able to operate and coordinate across multiple teams. You will work with the UberEATS operations, design, product, growth marketing teams to execute and measure marketing tactics, effectively communicate our brand, and grow our business. You should be equally at home drafting an email campaign or social post for massive distribution across the Uber user base as you are at home writing an SQL query or using a spreadsheet to analyze the results of your campaign.  You love data; you think an effort that isn’t measured is wasted.  Above all, you bring keen business judgement, a flair for numbers, and an intuitive ability to match effort with business impact.




What you'll do:

  • Opportunity Identification: Quantify everything you do by leveraging data, conducting analysis and experimentation to identify highest value opportunities for communication (via newsletters, email, push notifications, social, blog, etc) to users, restaurant partners, and driver partners
  • Informing Promotional Spend Decisions: Act as a thought partner to the General Manager concerning decisions on how to best deploy the promotion budget in order to accelerate market penetration and market share capture
  • Campaign Planning & Prioritization: Structure communications in a milestone- vs. time-based fashion, meaning that this is less about a plug-and-play communications strategy and more about targeted outreach based on need and opportunity
  • New Communication Channels: Help develop our expertise around new communications mediums like social, email and newsletter marketing, etc. 
  • Partnership Development: Identify strategic partnerships to grow the UberEATS brand and build awareness in the city — this could be a campaign with a well-known chef or restaurant, to a partnership with a major food event in the city
  • Content Crafting: Serve as the voice of the UberEATS brand in the Chicago market, helping to establish content that is beautiful (lots of food photography!), approachable, fun and action-oriented
  • Chief Growth Officer: Be able to speak to and own our growth metrics and drive our curve up and to the right
  • Hack and accelerate our path to a market leadership position.

What you'll need:

  • Bachelor’s degree from a 4-year university and a demonstrated ability in quantitative fields
  • 4+ years of digital or email marketing, user analytics, and/or consulting experience in a fast paced environment
  • Experience making data-driven marketing decisions using funnel tracking, A/B testing, and other analytical tools; experience with SQL or other database querying tools an asset
  • An eye for design, and comfort wielding tools like Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop
  • Strong written communication skills and ability to craft a brand voice
  • Ability to take initiative in a constantly-changing work environment and a willingness to adopt a generalist mindset
  • Growth hacking - knowing how to meticulously unpack the key levers for growing a business through keen analysis and scientific experimentation.
  • Startup (all-hands-on-deck) approach
  • Passion for the on-demand delivery space, and food delivery in particular
