Uber is on the lookout for sharp engineering talent in India that can help the Company come up with solutions for its mobility and delivery challenges across the globe.
The American tech firm is looking to strengthen its rider and driver growth, delivery, eats, digital payments, risk & compliance, marketplace, customer obsession, infrastructure, adtech, data, safety and finance technology teams. It plans to hire about 250 engineers for its technology centres in Bengaluru and Hyderabad as part of its attempt to expand the scope of operations in India.
Uber is focussing on making mobility and delivery more accessible and hopes to build a strong foundation for transportation in more than 10,000 cities globally.
It is already taking on more people for the new teams and expanding its existing ones in risk and payment, Eats, infrastructure, marketing and advertising, as well as Uber for Business (U4B)
Recently, the global humanitarian organisation, Go Dharmic (GD), collaborated with Uber India to facilitate mobility and provide logistical support to volunteers across India helping with the COVID situation. Over 1000 vital trips have been completed across multiple Indian cities helping people with critical needs.
Meanwhile, in the US, Uber and Lyft are lending their support to state laws that will allow their workers to enjoy the status of independent contractors. That means, they may even form a union. Both rideshare companies are in favour of laws in various states, especially in New York, where the campaign is being supported strongly despite opposition.
