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

Forecasting a hyper-growth business is hard.  Forecasting for one of the fastest growing startups ever, expanding globally across more than 600 markets, while driving optimization for evolving business models - that's a challenge for the bold and it doesn't come around often.  Doing all this alongside a team that is as driven, creative, hands-on, smart, passionate and fun-loving as you are - now we're really talking.
