Uber started out to solve a simple problem: the need to get a ride across town. Six years and one billion trips later, we’ve stumbled upon something a bit bigger: a new way to help tackle congestion – one of the most serious challenges cities face today.
We are recruiting to fill the position below:
Job Title: General Manager (West Africa)
- The core of Uber is in the city team, led by a General Manager. They make the magic that makes Uber a reality. It’s a big deal, and the qualities and capabilities required of an Uber GM mean you are an incredibly intelligent, talented and highly sought-after professional. Sound like you?
- The General Manager is by far the most demanding position Uber has to offer; it requires such a degree of talent, guts and leadership that the right person is difficult to find. As the leader of West Africa you will be responsible for the development and growth of our business across this region.
- As a GM, you are responsible for owning the markets, operational excellence, rider and driver experience, and extending the Uber brand to the masses through cross collaboration amongst internal teams – marketing, supply chain management, political engagement, service quality management, social media, PR. Continual improvement and a quality focus are the name of the game. We believe in solving local problems with local solutions, so understanding your market and delivering custom messages is important. This is where creativity meets analytics head on.
- And it’s the cross of the analytical with the creative that makes the Uber GM an incredibly difficult job to fill. If you’re potentially one of the truly rare, gifted Uber GMs, we want to hear from you!
