Position description

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.

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.

About the Role

We are looking for a talented Data Analyst to join the Global Security team, which monitors global events and incidents, assesses risk, identifies threats, and addresses them quickly and effectively. Using a data-driven and risk-based approach, we assign security support, allocate resources, and design processes and guidelines to keep Uber safe. This position will improve and maintain the technical security performance system used by Security Managers globally, which allows them to visualize and identify trends and patterns, track metrics and manage security of Uber sites worldwide.
