About Uber

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.

Job Description

Uber has already found meaningful product/market fit with its world-changing service. But it is absolutely day one for us. We’re seeking a small group of skilled and thoughtful designers to define and execute against a giant vision that improves upon what Uber has brought to the world so far.

If you join the Uber Design team, you’ll work among other skilled staff in a productive, rapidly growing, highly collaborative environment. From music festivals to marketing collateral, you will have the opportunity to give a local voice to Uber’s communications. We are highly user-centric and we deeply believe we can innovate our way out of any box. The role requires great execution, passion for quality, boldness and optimism. You’re inspired by the unknown and never settle, solving problems with creativity while keeping the user in mind and eagerness to take projects to completion.

Who you are

  • You’ve worked with excellent brands. Your portfolio is eye-wateringly beautiful. You’ve demonstrated your capabilities with instantly recognizable companies known for exceptional design. Your standards are incredibly high. You know how to elevate a brand.
  • You’re primarily digital with some analog tendencies. You push the limits of a responsive layout and can make a significant impact on a 30k ad banner. You love the emotional impact added by interactions, transitions, and animations, but you’re not afraid of a little CMYK. Your skills are built on a foundation of classical graphic design.
  • You are a storyteller. You understand that they key to great communication design is great communication. You use stories to make your work compelling, relevant, and meaningful to your audience.
  • You have big ideas. You think about more than just execution. You’re experienced in concept creation and can comfortably and skillfully pitch an ad. You always map your work to conceptual strategies that resonate with the intended audience.
  • The details matter to you. You’ve spent your career caring about letter spacing and corner rounding. You can’t not bump that object 2px to the left just to get it right. You are well versed in microinteractions in use (on mobile, web, desktop, etc), and have nuanced views on how to make many of them even better. Your typography and executions are excellent and you are very skilled in illustration and icon design.
  • You are incredibly productive. You deliver twice the quality in half the time. You mastered the Creative Suite years ago. You geek out on keyboard shortcuts, Photoshop actions, and the newest prototyping tools. You constantly strive to optimize your workflow, increase your output, and become a more efficient and effective designer.
  • You can think and talk about the bottom line. Analytics don’t scare you, and you know which features can act as multipliers on your company’s business model. You translate business strategies into compelling experiences for real people.
  • Cross-platform is your style. Hopefully you’ve designed for several platforms. You know what translates from desktop and what doesn’t, when to design in RGB vs CMYK and when to refer to a Pantone book.

What you’ll need

  • Excellent conceptual thinker
  • Demonstrated ability to deliver exceptional design at high volumes under tight timelines
  • A minimum of 3 years of visual design experience
  • A thorough understanding of designing to achieve business goals while meeting an expected brand standard and high bar for aesthetic quality
  • Experience with performance marketing a plus, but not necessary
  • Agency experience a plus, but not necessary
