Role Description

Uber Transit is pivotal for Uber as it will the most affordable ways of transportation in the Uber app also the most convenient and efficient way for riders. The team is building ways for riders to be able to see public transit options within the Uber app and purchase tickets in a very convenient and affordable way.

With Transit in the Uber app the team will also enable new combinations of transportation connecting all Uber modes of transportation together (e.g. bikes/scouters, ride sharing and public transit within the same trip).

The team is also working on tools which will enable cities to optimize infrastructure, replace inefficient transit networks and ultimately help cities to build dynamic public transit options which are less costly and efficient to the riders. We call to that Elastic Transportation.

Company Culture

We're a startup within Uber, this means we try to maintain a move fast and scrappy culture. The team is still small, 3 engineering member and 10 total across operations, sales, and product. It can be a chaotic environment at times, especially given the fact that our business is quite operationally intensive. All our team is highly committed to the project.
