Uber has already found strong product/market fit with its world-changing service. But it is absolutely day one for us. We’re seeking a small group of unbelievably talented product leaders to define and execute against a giant vision that builds upon what Uber has brought to the world so far.
If you have the right stuff to join the Uber Product team, you’ll work among star engineers, designers and product managers in a fast-paced, rapidly growing, hybrid technology/operations environment. We are highly rider-centric and we deeply believe we can innovate our way out of any box. The role demands great technical depth, principled thinking, well honed product judgment, a stubborn refusal to settle, bold innovation, a high design bar and a mentality of starting with the rider and working backwards.
What you’ll be doing:
Internalize and deeply understand Uber’s mission and strategies, as well as the mission and objectives of your specific team
Distill vision and strategy for the team, get all members of cross-functional team #superpumped.
Be incredibly truth-seeking. Collect whatever data is necessary to inform product direction, whether in the form of competitive intel, rider behavior or other business metrics. Solicit and embrace critical feedback.
Drive cross-functional team to set qualitative objectives and quantitative goals
Drive innovation, definition, deliverables planning (roadmap) and design of entirely new Uber products and product features to deliver against team and company goals. Requires challenging all members of cross-functional team (engineering, design, etc.) to think boldly and creatively and then to funnel that energy into concrete products and execution plans.
Drive definition of and execution against product go-to-market plan, including phasing and marketing.
Monitor and measure launched products and feed learnings back into product development process.
Clearly communicate product plans, benefits and results, as appropriate, to a spectrum of audiences, from internal stakeholders to all Uber employees to riders.

Stellar design instincts and product taste
A high bar across the board – from your own contributions to the people you work with to the products you work on
A “driver” personality – biased toward action, great collaborator and master disambiguator/simplifier – constantly pushing toward clarity and delivery
Grittiness. You never hesitate to roll up your sleeves and tackle something hands-on, you persevere when others fall away.
Excellent communication skills
True passion for Uber’s mission and the company’s hybrid technology / operations nature
A never-ending desire to grow and learn
Employees are given Uber credits every month
The rare opportunity to change the world such that everyone around you is using the product you built. We’re not just another social web app, we’re moving real people and assets and reinventing transportation and logistics globally.
