The Operations & Logistics Manager role is a unique opportunity to help drive growth through the optimization of our growing number of fleet partners and drivers. This is a critical role as it directly correlates to continually improving the rider experience through greater availability while minimizing costs. This data driven role calls for a rare combination of analytical thinking & inter-personal ability to manage partnerships.

 

This is an intense business-side startup role and this person will work closely with our engineers in San Francisco to monitor driver behavior and ensure efficiency through scheduling, asset utilization, and driver incentive programs. This role will have direct responsibility for the growth of their business.

 

What You'll do:

  • Identify, evaluate, negotiate and manage strategic fleet partnerships and driver development
  • Driver on-boarding and training
  • Fleet management and scheduling (supply-chain management)
  • Heavy metrics analysis and product/process improvement
  • Expansion planning/recruiting. Evaluate the economic and strategic costs and benefits of driver incentive programs and work with management to execute those strategies
  • Take ownership of Uber's growth in their city


What You Need to Know / Have:

  • 4+ years of operational/analytical experience gained in consulting, investment banking, marketing or operations management
  • Data driven decision making mentality and sound business judgment through strong analytical thinking
  • Solid understanding of a variety of business models
  • Masters degree in science/engineering, economics, finance or similar field
  • Startup (all-hands-on-deck) "I bust my ass because I love it" approach

  

Example Backgrounds:

  • Consulting, investment banking or accounting background with numbers/excel driven decision instincts
  • Engineering background with dreams of applying similar process to people processes
  • Dispatcher for a large fleet, without the "I know how this is done" attitude

 

Perks: 

  • Travel like a diplomat: employees are showered with Uber credits
  • Ground floor opportunity: shape the strategic direction of the company
  • Make a difference: we’re not just another social web app: we’re moving real people/assets and changing transportation for the future
  • We have access to an amazing list of advisors and investors that we actively engage
