Our Computer Vision platform is focused on understanding complicated interactions and behaviors in the physical world via cameras. Our team is using computer vision technology to ensure that Jump bikes and scooters are being used by riders in a safe and compliant manner. And, we're working on making restaurant onboarding for Eats more efficient.
Uber is looking for a Product Manager who can work with experts in machine learning to drive massive impact and revolutionize transportation and logistics. You will build an extensible platform for leveraging computer vision and conversational AI technology across Uber's multiple lines of business. And, you will own the vision for scaling this outside of Uber for city planning, third-party transportation & logistics needs, and beyond.
We're looking for people who have the following characteristics:
* Fast learner. You thrive on applying knowledge and experience to new domains, and don't believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. You should be able to adapt easily to meet the fast pace of a rapidly evolving research, development, and testing environment.
* Ability to build platforms. Our teams are solving one-off problems. You will drive a platform strategy, roadmap, and product offering.
* Identify Integration. Get deeply familiar with our innovations and make tactical decisions about how to link cutting-edge research within UberAI to our existing ML platforms. Examples include: Ludwig, PyML, Autotuning, & Pyro
* You strive to prove that speed and quality are not conflicting.
* You lead and inspire a high-performing team, while managing stakeholders across Product, Engineering, Data Science, Legal, and Operations.
