Design Director

Uber is a technology company that is changing the way the world thinks about transportation. We are building technology people use everyday. Whether it’s heading home from work, getting a meal delivered from a favorite restaurant, or a way to earn extra income, Uber is becoming part of the fabric of daily life. We’re making cities safer, smarter, and more connected. And we’re doing it at a global scale—energizing local economies and bringing opportunity to millions of people around the world. Uber’s positive impact is tangible in the communities we operate in, and that drives us to keep moving forward.

We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, come work with us, and let’s move the world forward, together.

About the role

We’re seeking an excellent design leader to manage and develop a world-class team of designers, writers, and researchers on the Driver team.

You will define and shape transportation and a mobility industry of the future that serves global drivers in over 500 cities and 70 countries.
