Uber runs like a well-oiled machine because its run by a tight-knit crew. Beyond informal happy hours, the team makes a point to organize group events—like its six-week dodgeball season. Recently, employees took a weekend day-cay to Napa Valley for a wine tasting trip where, in true Uber spirit, they enjoyed a day in the sun sipping and socializing.
What Jess Does
Jess’s morning formally starts at 11 AM with the daily stand-up meeting, where she checks in with her focus group and goes over the day’s objectives. After lunch with co-workers, she spends a good part of her time working to internationalize Uber’s products. She and her team are currently busy translating the products and creating systems that’ll work across international lines, preparing for Uber to conquer the world.
