ABOUT THE MOBILE TEAM
We're changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago we were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now we're a part of the logistical fabric of more than 600 cities around the world. Whether it's a ride, a sandwich, or a package, we use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.
For the people who drive with Uber, our app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, we help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer.
Underneath the hood we're redefining the way mobile works -- we've developed our own mobile architecture, open-sourced many of our tools and libraries, and we like to talk about it too. We're big on engineering solutions at scale and we're even bigger on contributing to the greater mobile community.
And that's just what we're doing today. We're thinking about the future, too. With teams working on autonomous trucking and self-driving cars, we're in for the long haul. We're reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.
Uber is a provider of a mobile application connecting passengers with drivers for hire.
