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.
As a data scientist on the Safety Data Science team you will have the opportunity to take on some of the hardest problems in all of Uber: improving the safety of cities and people all over the world. You will develop expertise and insights in a team that aims to make rare events even rarer. It is an incredibly challenging, stimulating, and, most of all, rewarding endeavor.
This data scientist will be based at Uber’s HQ in San Francisco, and report to the Sr. Manager in charge of Safety Data Science. This is a critical and integral opportunity with Uber. This team has long and successful relationships with our Machine Learning Platform, Insurance, Safety Research, Trust and Risk, Operations, all of our regional teams, and many other parts of Uber.
