Operations Manager - Driver Engagement/Retention

Uber Overview

Our Operations teams are the heart and soul of Uber. These are the teams that take our global product and localize it to an assigned market, while creating thousands of economic opportunities for drivers, and making transportation cheaper and more accessible for our riders. We are in the midst of incredible growth, which requires hard work. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about what they do and ready to roll up their sleeves to grow their city.

The Operations Manager role is a unique opportunity to have a direct impact on your city through the growth and optimization of the driver population on Uber’s platform.
