  • Drive the metrics we use to evaluate 'People Support', including volume, speed, efficiency, and quality
  • Set a high standard for the team to think boldly and creatively then funnel that energy into concrete processes and execution plans

What you'll need

  • Bachelor's degree, preferably in business / human resources
  • At least 5 years of prior experience in a data-driven organization leading support or service organizations
  • Analytical mindset - you center your priorities and decision making around metrics

  • Optimistic leadership - you can serve as the guiding light for your team, through all types of situations
  • Customer focus - you are passionate about our customer (the Uber employee) experience and can handle basic inquiries, and escalated requests
  • Project Management skills - you can organize anything, and keep several balls in the air implementing new projects, supporting employees, and assisting your team at the same time
  • Experience with Workday and/or JIRA is an extra bonus, though not required



  • Uber credits each month
  • Medical/dental/vision package to fit your needs
  • Smart, engaged co-workers in a enjoyable office environment
