Group Product Manager - Data Platform
Uber is a technology company that is changing the way the world thinks about transportation. We are building technology people use everyday. Whether it’s heading home from work, getting a meal delivered from a favorite restaurant, or a way to earn extra income, Uber is becoming part of the fabric of daily life.
We’re making cities safer, smarter, and more connected. And we’re doing it at a global scale-energizing local economies and bringing opportunity to millions of people around the world.
Uber’s positive impact is tangible in the communities we operate in, and that drives us to keep moving forward.
We are looking for an experienced product leader to drive our efforts to develop and scale Uber’s next-generation data infrastructure.
Your teams will create and own systems that enable end-to-end data pipelines that take data from event emission and ingestion all the way through to BI applications and other Uber services built on top of our data.
Your teams will own Uber’s Hadoop infrastructure as well as our ETL pipeline, our data modeling efforts, and all of the logging and streaming systems that feed into Hadoop and our data warehouse.
Your teams will consist of excellent Product Managers who work in close collaboration with TPMs, engineers, data scientists, and designers; you will interface with nearly every aspect of the Uber organization. If successful, you will change the course of data at Uber and create a world-class architecture that fuels and supports our unprecedented growth.
Having excellent communication and collaboration skills, an entrepreneurial bent, excellent technical and analytical understanding, product management expertise, good judgment, and deep background in building scalable systems will allow you to thrive in this role.
