Product Manager - Security - Risk Platform

Uber Overview

We’re looking for an experienced product manager to join our efforts to build and take Uber’s risk and safety management technology to the next level.

We are pioneering new techniques everyday to detect and counter bad actors all over the world who are constantly adapting and discovering new ways to abuse our platform.

You will work alongside rockstar Product Managers who collaborate with talented engineers, data scientist, and analysts to build and own systems that enable a wide range of business units (risk management, information security, trust and safety) to manage exposures effectively while enabling unprecedented growth. These systems are comprised of numerous data pipelines that take data from event emission and ingestion all the way through processing and machine learning, decisioning at scale, and BI applications.

Uber is at the forefront of one of the most exciting marketplace challenges as the world rapidly evolves from desktop to on-demand mobile commerce. Our ability to effectively manage risk in this environment is key to our ongoing success and allows the company to make bold bets while maintaining a delightful and painless user experience. It’s our job to think about this so that our riders and drivers don’t have to.

  • A graduate degree or equivalent in computer science or a quantitative domain plus hands-on software engineering and/or data science experience. Technical understanding must go from the highest abstractions down to the metal.
