At Uber, we ignite opportunity by setting the world in motion. We take on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters get moving in more than 600 cities around the world.
We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let's move the world forward, together.
About the Team
The Rider Pricing team is responsible for the algorithms and systems that determine prices for every trip on the Uber platform. The models built by our team set prices that trade off engagement and profitability on $20 billion in annualized gross billings, and they work to maintain market reliability via dynamic pricing in all of Uber's 600+ cities. We're a team built on data, and execute by leveraging the best of quantitative disciplines, from machine learning to operations research, statistical inference to econometrics and structural modeling.
We're looking for a data scientist to build state of the art ML and statistical models that uplevel our pricing systems.
