About the role
In Marketplace you’ll be at at the center of Uber’s business, where riders and drivers come together at extraordinary scale. As a data scientist, you’ll combine clear product vision, deep technical skills and powerful data analysis to improve the algorithms that run Uber’s vast worldwide marketplace every minute of the day. We’re looking for you to produce elegant solutions that are practical, effective and can work at Uber scale.
Our team tackles problems such as optimizing Uber’s short and long term pricing systems; efficiently matching incoming trip requests in Uber’s dispatch system; developing innovative incentive schemes that reward riders and drivers for choosing our network; and providing optimal routes and accurate turn-by-turn navigation to save time for everybody. We also forecast, monitor and evaluate all aspects of our marketplace using both large scale observational data and thoughtful experimentation.
If you are passionate about original ideas, and take pride in seeing those thoughts come to life in a high impact setting, then you’ll be at home in our team where creative exploration and iterative experimentation are at the heart of what we do. As part of Marketplace, you will work side-by-side with Uber's engineering team to scale your ideas across Uber's real-time production systems, and then strive to gain insights from the real world outcomes we see.
