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


We’re looking for a business-savvy partner manager to help grow our line of partnerships across multiple verticals within the Sub-Saharan (SSA) region.



What You’ll Do


  • Read between the lines. You’ll be working with various teams, supporting them to create and drive contracts to closure, and then support these key strategic relationships to provide maximum value for both Uber and its partners
  • Handle the big picture, and the tiny details. You’re organized and always on top of your deadlines to ensure nothing gets missed. You also have an eye to the big picture and flourish by creating new ways to add to existing partnerships. You’ll be making those not so obvious connections that drive innovative products and initiatives to grow our business
  • Bring your analytical A-game. You’ll be building business models, performing analysis to understand trends, provide actionable insights, and track productivity and success of initiatives to ensure we’re driving toward the best possible outcome
  • Drive initiatives. You will drive and support key initiatives across our business teams to grow strategic and long term opportunities with our various partners. This involves wearing many hats and jumping in to help your teammates when the needs arise

What You’ll Need


  • Minimum of 5 years experience in banking, consulting, business development, ideally
  • Instinct for handling partners. You have a consistent track record of supporting business managers in partner & project management; research & analysis as well as marketing. You have a sixth sense when it comes to partnerships and can effortlessly navigate multiple partner engagements simultaneously
  • High throughput. Your strong bias towards action helped you earned the reputation of someone who gets things done. You love having a lot on your plate and get energy from being busy
  • An intuition for people. You’re spending the majority of the time working with various internal and external teams, building and really cultivating new relationships with potential and existing partners and within all parts of an organization
  • The athlete’s mentality. You’re an all around player, flexing and stretching your analytical prowess, pitching in as needed but also knowing when to take control and lead a conversation be it with an engineer, a product manager, or a C-level executive
  • Quick is your middle name. This team moves fast and always operating in new spaces. You pick up things fast and run with them. If you need a ton of hand holding, this isn’t the job for you


About The Team


A newer function within the Uber world; we’re building a small and nimble global team that will be motivated and grown by innovation and strategy with an end goal that’s always about building these key relationships.
