About the Role
Uber transformed the market for on-demand mobility. Now, we're developing a range of "plan ahead" products. Examples include a commuter service using minibuses, paratransit for cities, employee transportation for businesses, and reservations for ride-hailing.

  • Network Quality - how do we design paths and routes that optimally serve Riders' stated needs in terms of location and time?
  • Efficiency - how do we fulfill the whole collection of Riders' demand in the most efficient way possible?
