Uber Eats State Manager, WA/SA

Uber Overview

About Uber

We're changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago we were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now we're a part of the logistical fabric of more than 600 cities around the world. Whether it's a ride, a sandwich, or a package, we use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.

For the people who drive with Uber, our app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, we help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer.

And that's just what we're doing today. We're thinking about the future, too. With teams working on autonomous trucking and self-driving cars, we're in for the long haul. We're reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.

Job Description

About the Role

With Uber Eats, we're building Uber's newest and fastest growing business, spanning 180+ cities across all six continents in two years.

As the State Manager for Uber Eats in WA, you will have the unique opportunity to scale and develop our food delivery platform in one of our major cities globally.

But food is also fun, and the people of WA are passionate about eating great food, so you get to operate in a world that consumers love!

We're looking for someone who has that mix of operational prowess to get great work done, the negotiation and collaboration skills needed to bring out the best from our restaurant partners, the innovation and creative thinking that's required to develop outside the box solutions, and the emotional intelligence required to lead a fast paced business and inspire a team of people.

We need a master executor/operator. This is the ideal role for someone who has experience building out processes, who's obsessed with tinkering and iterating to obtain operational excellence and 'Uber' quality throughout the customer's experience. Local marketing, marketplace efficiency, quality and experience sit under the State Manager's umbrella of responsibilities. Deeply understanding your market and and building local partnerships is critical. This is where creativity meets analytics and execution head on.
