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.
This data science and economics team works with the Legal team on Uber’s most important legal issues. We work with the Legal team to develop analyses and arguments—based on data, economics, and the law—to defend Uber against risks in litigation and provide regulators answers to their requests for information.
Data Scientists on the this team work at the intersection of data science, economics, and the law. The data analyst is responsible for developing a deep understanding of Uber's databases and their quirks as well as assembling, analyzing, and telling compelling stories with data.
Ideally you are not only fluent in the language of data but are also an adept written and verbal communicator. You should have the ability to get through to external parties and help them understand the nuances of our arguments. Fluency in English, both oral and written, is critical.
