Senior HR Analyst EMEA

Uber Overview

Uber's leaders rely on People Analytics to develop data-driven approaches to finding, developing, and retaining Uber's greatest asset - its people. This team provides the foundation to how global talent is managed at Uber, and the People Insights Analysts are the team's bedrock. The analyst team is building a people business intelligence function from the ground up while simultaneously experimenting with our own ideas, ultimately addressing HR challenges in a data-driven way few other companies have had the vision to try before. To do so, we apply rigorous analysis & data science principles to people data. It's up to us to build the models and tools needed to make data accessible, perform deep-dive analyses of strategic importance to the company, and translate our work into findings that empower our leaders to make business decisions.

Given the world of people analytics is an emerging field, there's no set playbook on how to best take on the challenges that come with incredible growth. As such, being a Senior Insights Analyst requires a mix of strategic thinking, creativity in the face of ambiguity, analytical skills, and resourcefulness.

Who you are

  • You are biased towards action. You run towards challenges (not away) even in the face of ambiguity.
  • A team player. None of our work is in a silo. The reward comes not from individual glory but from the collective satisfaction of a job well done.
  • An open and curious problem-solver. You have an analytical mind and can navigate obstacles on the fly in a thoughtful, creative, and reasonable way.
  • Passionate about data. You love crunching numbers and are a firm believer in their ability to tell a story.
  • A lover of people. You're excited to know that your work will impact Uber employees and future candidates.
  • Detail-oriented. When the data on the screen is a reflection of the colleagues you work with, there's no room for error.
  • A learner. You don't need to be an expert in everything at the start, but you're excited at the prospect of improving both yourself and the value you bring to the team.
  • A communicator. You will have to explain your data to key stakeholders both inside and outside the People team; at times, you may be asked to be the face of the People team to Uber's employees.
  • Excited about impact. Your work at a minimum will define how Uber manages its global talent, and could potentially set the precedent for what the people analytics industry looks like for the foreseeable future.

What you'll do

  • Transform numbers on a screen into intelligible stories that reflect the actual experience of both our current & prospective employees around the globe
  • Partner with colleagues in the People Analytics team as well as leaders and executives across Uber (both inside and outside the People team) as the analytical engine that drives towards solutions for their toughest talent problems; as the first member of our People Analytics team in EMEA, you will spearhead data analysis to drive business decisions that impact all of Uber, with a specific focus in our EMEA region
