About The Role

Drivers are the lifeblood of the Uber experience. The Driver team owns interactions with drivers from the sign up through their day-to-day experiences with Uber. They help drivers learn to drive on the Uber platform, giving them information about earnings and quality, direct them to earnings opportunities, and provide real-time information to them while on the trip. The Driver DS team analyzes and builds models of driver behavior and uses these to power the Driver app. They interface with the marketplace team to provide real-time signals for matching and pricing.
