About the Role
As an Associate Product Manager (APM), you will join Uber's next generation of product leaders. The program is a two-year rotational program composed of three rotations (two six-month and a final year-long) across Uber's various businesses (Rides, Eats, Uber for Business, Freight, etc.). On each rotation, you will lead cross-functional teams across engineering, design, and more to build high-impact products that are used daily by millions worldwide. Previous APMs have launched busses on the Uber app, led our new membership program, and created rides products to improve access to healthcare.
For consideration, please be sure to submit a completed application by Monday, August 16, 2021 at 5PM PST.
About the Team
The APM team showcases extraordinary technical depth, critical thinking, well-honed product judgment, a high design bar and a mentality of starting with our users and working backwards. The Uber APM program fosters a learn-by-doing philosophy that drives innovation from a global perspective. We strive to build a strong sense of community for APMs during and beyond the program and collaboration across diverse teams and functions.
