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 Operations & Logistics Manager role on the UberEATS Boston team is going to play a crucial role in shaping our strategy with our most important and complicated restaurant & food supply needs. This will require a motivated, entrepreneurial, self-starter with a passion for food and problem solving. Whoever takes on this role will be entering the restaurant side of the business at the ground floor, where there will be tremendous opportunity for innovation, ownership, and growth.

Perks

What You’ll Do

  • Scale new and existing processes to allow the business to efficiently operate and grow
  • Optimize delivery times, earnings, restaurant satisfaction with couriers, and eater (recipient) satisfaction with couriers; help make our couriers as efficient and effectively as possible
  • You have an eye for the macro view of our market - you know how far it's profitable to drive a meal from any given restaurant, what parts of town are missing access to good Mexican food, the next part of the city we should be expanding into (and how many restaurants we'll need to have coverage there)
  • Choose the strategic projects the team should prioritize, and set a timeline to reach goals quickly
  • Proactively search for new product features which could improve a seamless driver and customer experience
  • Help design processes, whether it be restaurant prospecting, onboarding, account management, or courier growth and scaling in such a way that your processes contribute, rather than act as a bottleneck, on growth
  • Take ownership of UberEATS' growth in your city and do everything you can to enhance the quality of our services

 

What You’ll Need

  • At least 2 years of investment banking / consulting / business intelligence / strategy or related experience
  • Proficient in Excel
  • Knowledge of SQL
  • Exceptional communication and organization skills.
  • Data-driven decision making mentality, sound business judgment, and the ability to back your analysis up with meaningful analytical thinking
  • A willingness to be "on the ground" working with our drivers
  • Ability to take initiative in a constantly-changing work environment
  • Experience creating and optimizing processes
  • Excellent understanding of a variety of business models (we're still proving ours)

 

 

Bonus Points if

  • Experience in high-growth operations or startup businesses
