Group Product Manager - Data Platform

Uber Overview

We are looking for an experienced product leader to lead our efforts to build and scale Uber’s next-generation data infrastructure.

Your teams will build 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 stellar 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 build a world-class architecture that fuels and supports our unprecedented growth.

To win at this job, you will need A+ communication and collaboration skills, an entrepreneurial bent, strong technical and analytical understanding, product management expertise, killer judgment, deep background in building scalable systems, and an unquenchable desire to help Uber become the smartest company in the world.

What You’ll Be Doing:

  • Internalize and deeply understand Uber’s mission and strategy, as well as the mission and objectives of multiple teams under your leadership
  • Own multiple teams and multiple projects working toward a scalable data infrastructure that supports your internal customers’ needs. Attain internal product-market fit and widespread product adoption among data consumers at Uber
  • Recruit, manage, coach and lead a team of highly technical Product Managers. Ensure strong team dynamics, team + individual team member performance, growth and #superpumpedness
  • Be in the details. Know your team’s work in depth; get your hands dirty a lot
  • Work closely with other teams at Uber to ensure efficient and productive working relationships
  • Lead by example. Be incredibly truth-seeking and finger-tippy with data, set a high bar for the team to think boldly and creatively and then to funnel that energy into concrete products and execution plans, move fast, be biased toward action

What You’ll Need

  • A computer science undergraduate degree or equivalent plus hands-on software engineering experience. Technical understanding must go from the highest abstractions down to the metal
  • 8+ years experience leading product teams that delivered solutions related to data infrastructure at scale
  • Deep familiarity with cutting edge of data technologies, including Hadoop, Hive, Spark, data warehousing solutions, and in-memory databases
  • 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.
  • Customer-centricity – examples from your past of tough product challenges that you powered through because you were unwilling to make your problems your customers’ problems
  • True passion for Uber’s mission and the company’s hybrid technology / operations nature

Perks

  • Employees are showered with Uber credits each month.
  • Ground floor opportunity with the team; shape the strategic direction of the company.
  • 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.
  • Sharp, motivated co-workers in a fun office environment.

Benefits (U.S.)

  • 401(k) plan, gym reimbursement, nine paid company holidays.
  • Full medical/dental/vision package to fit your needs.
  • Unlimited vacation policy; work hard and take time when you need it.

We’re bringing Uber to every major city in the world. We need brains and passion to make it happen and to make it happen in style.
