Uber – Why Work With Us?


Employees at our San Francisco HQ

What is Uber? 

Every day, Uber is building and shaping the future. By seamlessly connecting riders to drivers through our apps, we make cities more accessible, opening up more possibilities for riders and more business for drivers. From our founding in 2009 to our launches in over 600+ cities today, Uber's rapidly expanding global presence continues to bring people and their cities closer.  

Who do we hire?

Building the future is no easy task. It requires solving some of the most difficult problems of the present. It takes a lot of hard work, a lot of love, and support from colleagues all over the world. At Uber, we have brought together a world-class collective of problem solvers. And we all fundamentally understand that tough challenges help us personally grow the most. So if you’re a problem solver at heart, and want to work on the most exciting and rewarding challenges in the industry, then you might just be the perfect fit for Uber.

Drive or Deliver with Uber

Drive or Deliver with Uber and earn anytime you want

Drive with Uber

Driving with Uber is a flexible way to make money day or night. You can choose when and how often you drive, so you’re always in control of your schedule. It’s simple: The more you drive, the more you earn. And since you’re the boss, you never have to miss out on the things that matter to you.

When you drive, the Uber Partner app gives you optional turn-by-turn directions and tools to help you earn more, so you always make the most of your time on the road. And with in-app tipping, riders can send you tips for the great service you provide. Plus, Uber is there for support 24/7, right through the app, whenever you need it.

Whether you’re looking for a part-time or full-time way to earn money, driving with Uber is a great way to bring you closer to the things you want.


Deliver with Uber

You can also make money by delivering the food people love from local restaurants. Just like driving, delivering with Uber Eats is totally flexible around your schedule. But instead of people, you’re delivering food—and it’s all on the same Uber Partner app.

Depending on the rules in your city, you may be able to deliver food by car, scooter, bike, or on foot. While you’re on the road, it’s just you—so turn up the music and enjoy cruising around town.

    I have been working at Uber full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    High standards, but high devotion as well.

    They're committed to my success as much as they are their own. And man...the workplace perks are a huge plus. Feels like I'm working towards a better future for myself and my city.

    Cons

    No 401k match.

    I get it, they want you to invest in the company, but I'd rather have more retirement than snacks and catered food. Probably a minority opinion but still notable.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on your road to transparency. Don't be dismayed by emotional employee reactions to leadership decisions, take it as an opportunity to practice your presentation skills. Communication is key!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Uber (New York, NY) in March 2019.

    Interview

    After contacting via mail, we had a phone interview discussing previous experience and job opportunities. The discussion revolved around general systems and engineering questions and ended with a detailed layout of ubers' teams in new york and the relevant jobs in each one of them.
