The candidate should have prior experience mentoring other analysts/data scientists with direct management experience a plus.

Describe and explain Uber’s data and the economics of the platform to lawyers, regulators, and other key stakeholders

Generate ideas for and execute analyses to advance Uber’s legal and business goals

Mentor a team of data scientists

  • Demonstrated familiarity with programming concepts and ability to use tools such as SQL, Python, and R to work efficiently at scale
