The EMEA Uber Rides business spans over 40 countries across 3 continents and is one of the main drivers of Uber's growth and profitability. As a business, we face an outstanding set of opportunities and challenges due to regulatory, competitive and economic differences in our region. The EMEA Strategy and Planning team works directly for the Regional General Manager of EMEA to shape our strategic approach to the region, implement changes and coordinate actions across Operations, Marketing, Support, and our functional teams. The team has recurring responsibilities leading our annual planning cycle & governance, quarterly strategy refresh, and our competitive strategy and response. Additionally, the team runs strategic projects which historically have involved launching new markets, driving the implementation of product/legal or policy changes, leading M&A integrations and working with functions to improve performance.
The Senior Manager in the team will work directly with the Regional General Manager of EMEA to support business planning and execution. We expect the Senior Manager to manage 3+ concurrent work streams supported by 1-2 associates, and to coordinate performance across a highly diverse set of partners, including leadership from marketing, support and product!
