Job Description

About the Role

As a Product Manager for Search in the Maps group, you will help define vision, strategy and roadmap for one of the key platforms - "Where To?". Search products for Uber are unique where accurately defining pickup and dropoff locations is critical for our business, to compute accurate upfront fare, to bring in efficiency in the marketplace and to delight the users with a slick experience.

You will work closely with world-class Engineering teams, Product Managers, Data scientists and Designers to build Places & Search product for Uber. You will interface with nearly every aspect of the Uber organization - from Rider to Driver experience, from Maps to Marketplace, from Eats to Couriers.

  • Craft a coherent product vision, strategy and roadmap for the Search group at Uber.
  • Internalize and deeply understand how Search impacts core Uber business including accurate fare prediction, challenges in emerging markets where there is a lack of places data - and then align your team's mission and roadmap with this direction
  • Execute. This means being constantly biased towards action, knowing the data, being in the details, setting a high bar and building strong collaborative relationships with other teams, thinking boldly, disambiguating, always thinking of the customer first and rapidly iterating towards something demonstrably awesome
  • Vision. Think outside the box. Imagine what Places and Search and other services the world would need tomorrow when we have self driving cars and other innovations. How would you build today's capabilities that become tomorrow's differentiators.
  • Drive a cross-functional team to set qualitative objectives and quantitative goals.

What the Candidate Will Need / Bonus Points

  • Minimum 4 years of Product Management experience.
  • 2 years experience building Search related products.
  • Experience applying Machine Learning / statistical inference technologies to a variety of complex problems.
  • Computer science undergraduate degree or equivalent plus hands-on software engineering experience
  • Technical understanding should go from the highest abstractions down to the metal.
  • Finger-tippiness with data: you just go get the data you need with no muss/fuss and can whip it into an insightful story with no help. You know how to use data to make decisions without getting stuck in analysis paralysis.
  • Entrepreneurial spirit and a thirst for learning.

Bonus points:

  • Launching online data and services products in international emerging markets.
  • Understanding of big-data processing pipelines (over Hadoop or similar technologies), distributed data stores, and distributed file systems
