Travel is in many ways the heart and soul of Uber. Trips to and from the airport account for around 10% of total US&C trip volume and almost 20% of gross bookings, and the overall percentage of ground transportation at airports fulfilled by Uber is quite small. Airport trips are many riders’ first use case, and these trips have higher average fares and a higher mix towards more profitable products. But “travel” can encompass much more than this - it could be the experience of using Uber in a new city or relying on Uber when on the road for business, trips between cities that substitute for a train or a rental car, and ultimately travel experiences that Uber doesn’t touch today. In 2016, domestic travelers spent $836.6 billion in the US, representing an attractive opportunity for a company that’s such a natural part of that market today.
The Airport Operations Partner Manager role is a unique opportunity to grow Uber’s business with a focus on Uber’s airport experience. This role will drive revenue growth strategy and operations for a portfolio of US airports.
This role calls for a combination of creative problem solving, analytical skills, and interpersonal ability to manage strategic programs and partnerships with both airports and local government organizations. You should be as comfortable at data analysis as you are at project management and building and maintaining external relationships.
