Job Description

THE ROLE

As Head of Product for Financial Intelligence, you will envision and execute on a strategy and product roadmap to enable incisive, real-time decision-making. You will build a world-class forecasting platform that allows Uber to formulate strategies and run its business intelligently.

You will be responsible for overall metrics and business impact of your programs. You will hire and grow Product Managers into strong leaders and help them shape objectives, KPIs and roadmaps.

Your performance is measured by the impact of the products you launch and by your ability to lead and inspire a high-performing cross-functional team that includes Product, Engineering, Data, Finance, Design and Operations.

QUALIFICATIONS AND REQUIREMENTS

  • 10+ years experience leading product and data teams and delivering highly successful and innovative products with your fingerprints all over them – you’re extremely proud of what you’ve accomplished.
  • A data science background with experience building data platforms.
  • A computer science undergraduate degree or equivalent, preferably including hands-on software engineering experience. Technical understanding must go from the highest abstractions down to the metal.
  • The ability to set a high bar for your team and empower them to achieve great results.
  • A “driver” personality – constantly pushing toward clarity and delivery while balancing the need for great collaboration.
  • Grittiness. You never hesitate to roll up your sleeves and tackle something hands-on, you persevere when others fall away.
  • Finger-tippiness with data: you just go get the data you need with no muss/fuss and can whip it into an insightful story with no help. You know how to leverage data to make decisions without getting stuck in analysis paralysis.
  • User-centricity – examples from your past of product challenges that you powered through because you were unwilling to make your problems your users’ problems.
  • A high bar across the board – from your own contributions to the people you work with to the products you work on.
  • Passion for Uber’s mission and the company’s hybrid technology / operations nature.
  • A never-ending desire to grow and learn.

Perks

  • Employees receive Uber credits each month
  • Ground floor opportunity within a small but rapidly growing 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 an office environment who work hard but know how to have fun

BENEFITS (U.S.):

  • 401(k) plan, gym reimbursement
  • Full medical/dental/vision package to fit your needs
