Product Designer

Uber | San Francisco, CA

Posted Date 9/09/2018
Description

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

 

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

 

And that’s just what we’re doing today. We’re thinking about the future, too. With teams working on new modalities, self-driving cars and even urban air transportation, we’re in for the long haul. We’re reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.
And that’s just what we’re doing today. We’re thinking about the future, too. With teams working on new modalities, self-driving cars and even urban air transportation, we’re in for the long haul. We’re reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.

We're seeking a small group of unbelievably skilled and thoughtful designers to define and execute against a giant vision that builds upon what Uber has brought to the world so far.

 

Join the Uber Design team, you'll work among design oriented engineers, product managers and some of the best designers in a fast-paced, rapidly growing, hybrid (technology/operations) environment.



Who You Are

 

You’re a generalist with a sweet spot, or a specialist looking to broaden your skills.

You focus on UI or UX. We're interested in skilled designers with first, titles a distant second.

 

You're an amazing craftsperson. Your portfolio, based on 3+ years of experience in design,  displays quality examples and inspiring projects that tackle interaction design problems.

 

You believe in craftsmanship and create elegant and compelling designs, over and over.

Your portfolio has some best-in-class work. You're a walking encyclopedia of microinteractions in use (on mobile, web, desktop, etc), and have nuanced views on how to make many of them even better.

 

Cross-platform is your style.

You know what translates from desktop and what doesn't, or why you'd opt for one solution for iOS and another on Android.

 

You've shipped product.

You've weathered release cycles and know what details matter at each stage, how to motivate engineers to get the fit and finish right, how to translate insights from user studies into meaningful action, and what's most likely to go afoul at each stage.

 

Prototyping is a key part of your toolset

You've prototyped on multiple platforms. You've made last-minute tweaks between user studies. You know how to be speedy and resourceful, but dream of better prototyping tools.

 

Requirements

 

Comfortable with cross functional collaboration between Research, Design, Product, Eng, Data Science and Marketing

Understands how to translate research insights into actionable design

Demonstrates understanding of service design/systems thinking and integrating products/services across a platform
