About The Role
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.
A great example if this is Uber’s participation in facilitating a significantly portion of transport for he Qatar World Cup!
Uber’s positive impact is tangible in the communities we operate in, and that drives us to keep moving forward.
The General Manager at Uber is one of the most fast-paced positions Uber has to offer; it requires an outstanding combination of talent, courage, and leadership. As the leader of Egypt, you will be responsible for the development and balanced growth of our business and people.
As the General Manager, you’ll also be responsible for operational excellence and maintaining and continuously improving ‘Uber’ quality throughout the Rider’s experience, customer support, local marketing, supply chain management, and service quality management.
This role requires excellent collaboration across different functional and specialized teams and can bridge the gap with the city, Regional, and HQ teams. We need leaders that are innovators and can build, mentor, and encourage strong teams to reach their potential. We believe in solving local problems with local solutions, so understanding your market and delivering custom messages is important.
It’s the intersection of the analytical with the creative that makes the Uber GM a difficult job to fill and the impact on our people and our business that makes it such a phenomenal job to have!
