Essentially, you will be rolling out a new transportation system in your local metropolis.
The core of Uber is in the city team – led by a General Manager. They make the magic that is Uber a reality. It’s a big idea. The qualities and capabilities required of an Uber GM mean you are an incredibly intelligent, talented and highly sought-after professional. Sound like you?

Customer support, local marketing, supply chain management, service quality management, social media, PR — all of these sit under the GM. Continual improvement and a focus on quality are the name of the game.
We believe in solving local problems with local solutions, so understanding your market and delivering custom messages is important. This is where creativity meets analytics head on. And it’s the mix of analytical with creative that makes the Uber GM an incredibly difficult job to fill. If you’re potentially one of the truly rare, gifted Uber GMs, we want to hear from you.
