About Uber

Uber is a technology company that is changing the way the world thinks about transportation. We are building technology people use everyday. Whether it's heading home from work, getting a meal delivered from a favorite restaurant, or a way to earn extra income, Uber is becoming part of the fabric of daily life.
We're making cities safer, smarter, and more connected. And we're doing it at a global scale-energizing local economies and bringing opportunity to millions of people around the world.

Uber's positive impact is tangible in the communities we operate in, and that drives us to keep moving forward.
Uber Freight connect shippers with truckers, much like the way the Uber connects riders and drivers. We are a team of sharp, entrepreneurial individuals who are redefining the movement of things around the world. On the Uber Freight team, we fiercely believe that our dedication to transportation technologies will bring more harmonious, highly efficient, and increasingly safer transportation logistics to our roads. We are currently looking for researchers to join our growing team who share our enthusiasm for taking on today’s toughest challenges in transportation.

Uber Freight is seeking user experience researchers who aren’t afraid to take on the hairy, complex, and profitable business of trucking and turn it into something simple, thoughtful, and magical. Each member of our small team of researchers is responsible for driving qualitative and quantitative research activities across a variety of teams. Researchers should be comfortable juggling many research approaches to ensure the broader Uber Freight team is empowered with the right insights for product decisions.
