Regional Operations Manager, Vehicle Solutions

Uber Overview

Strategic Vehicle Solutions Manager - Brazil

Vehicle Solutions have grown into a key lever to unlock supply growth and fuel partner-driver retention through a variety of business partnerships with rental, leasing, financing and car manufacturing companies – they are now responsible for millions of weekly trips across the world and over 10% of supply hours in Brazil, with an immense growth potential.

We are re-inventing the way driver-partners can access the opportunity to work with Uber and empowering those with little or no upfront capital.

The VS Manager will be responsible for VS becoming one of our main advantages vis-a-vis competitors.

The ideal candidate has a versatile skill set. You'll need to conduct the analysis that informs the execution of these initiatives, while also being able to communicate with drivers as effectively as you can with C-suite executives. It also requires a strong operational mind, as guiding our city operations teams in scaling the platform is a key part of the role. You need to be able to take your spreadsheets to the streets, and negotiate the deals in between. This role will have serious impact on the big-picture, strategic initiatives critical to scaling Uber's supply chain in cities across the globe.
