About the Team

Uber's People & Organization Development team drives the continued growth of Uber by giving employees the tools and experiences needed to do their best work. We use data to create impactful experiences that enable high-performing people and teams. We cultivate a diverse and inclusive culture by creating scalable, accessible, social learning. But perhaps most important, we apply a user-focused design approach to everything we do--and we always put people first. Because we understand that, ultimately, it's the people who will drive Uber's continued success.

  • Support, manage, and/or guide partners and subject matter specialists through the collaborative design process, liaising with POD product managers and program managers to ensure effective design, development, implementation, and feedback loop
  • Use learning analytics and user feedback to recommend improvements for each design cycle.
  • Establish and improve team standards and production processes
  • Find new ways to produce content that scales and resonates with our increasingly global, busy audience

  • Demonstrated knowledge of adult learning theory standard methodologies and experience designing innovative content on various tools (i.e. Articulate, Captivate, Google Suite, content aggregators, websites) hosted on multiple platforms (LMS, web-based, mobile, etc)
  • Ability to work collaboratively with multiple partners, managing input while owning and driving the development timeline forward
  • Ability to translate feedback into improvements for both content and process
  • Passionate about the learner experience and how to make it better; open to feedback and improving both oneself and the team
