Uber is changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago they were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now they’re part of the logistical fabric of more than 600 cities around the world. Whether it’s a ride, a sandwich, or a package, they use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.

For the people who drive with Uber, the app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, they help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer.

And that’s just what they’re doing today. Uber are thinking about the future, too. With teams working on autonomous trucking and self-driving cars, Uber is in for the long haul. They’re reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.

Technical Recruiting Leader, EMEA

Uber is seeking a leader for the EMEA Technical Recruiting team with a passion for developing talent within the team and desire to partner deeply with Engineering leaders to hire the greatest minds in the industry across the region.  ‘The Future of Mobility’ may sound like a daunting topic, however, it is just this that Uber's Engineering and Technical teams are handling.

Delivering a premier, on-demand transportation experience takes a critical eye for quality, and they need a leader who has the same critical eye to identify the top technical talent required. The Technical Recruiting team must be able to find the diamonds in the rough, maintain high quality and hire quickly. 

Successful candidates will have deep expertise in leading teams of recruiters and will demonstrate significant experience in management roles. The ideal candidate will have a track record of building scalable solutions in new territories, motivating individual contributors and managers to work cohesively to deliver the best, quickly. Do you have a natural curiosity about cutting edge technology? Are you an expert at measuring impact? Do you know how to attract the best and brightest Technical talent across the globe? If you can, then we would love to hear from you.
