At Uber, we ignite opportunity by setting the world in motion. We take on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters get moving in more than 600 cities around the world.

We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let's move the world forward, together.

Uber Eats is looking for a Strategy & Planning Lead to sit on the UK & Ireland Leadership Team and partner closely with the UK & Ireland General Manager to drive sustainable growth in the region, with a direct impact on the success of one of Uber Eats' largest markets. The Strategy & Planning Lead will be responsible to help develop business strategy and facilitate decision-making, lead cross-functional strategic initiatives and drive alignment and performance across the UKI team.

This role calls for a combination of critical thinking, analytics, and project, stakeholder and team management. Further, as Uber Eats is a new business and remains a fast paced environment, we are looking for a highly adaptable candidate who is able to adjust between long-term strategic initiatives one moment and rapid, tactical actions the next.

What You'll Do



  • Strategy & Execution: work closely with the UK & Ireland General Manager and Leadership Team to develop, iterate and drive focussed execution of our business strategy

  • Advanced Analytics: build, maintain and communicate business performance & intelligence to assist city-level and regional decision-making. Lead ad-hoc analyses on strategic opportunities and key business priorities

  • Cross-Functional Strategic Initiatives: design, prioritise, and lead implementation of strategic initiatives, working closely with a wide range of cross-functional partners (Engineering, Business Development, Marketing, Product, Legal, Policy, Finance, etc.)

  • Team Management: build and lead a team of S&P Associates and Analysts to support your team's mission

  • Lead By Example: set high standards for the team to think boldly and creatively, and then funnel that energy into concrete processes and plans. Adapt quickly and be biased toward action


What You'll Need



  • At least 10 years of experience in a consulting, strategy/business intelligence or high-growth operations environment; startup experience is a plus

  • Knowledge of delivery logistics, sales, retail or restaurant operations is a plus

  • Exceptional Excel / data management skills. SQL Proficiency preferred

  • Advanced project management and organization skills

  • Advanced presentation and communication skills: being a clear and concise communicator with the ability to synthesize a lot of information quickly, highlight the key takeaways, and disseminate practical insights

  • Balancing attention to detail with swift execution: we need to do things quickly, and we need to do them well.

  • Self-starter - the ability to self-serve, investigate and get the data we require will make you much more effective in this role


At Uber, we reimagine the way the world moves for the better. The idea was born on a snowy night in Paris in 2008, and ever since then, our DNA of reimagination and reinvention carries on. We've grown into a global platform moving people and things in ever-expanding ways, taking on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters make movement happen at the push of a button for everyone, everywhere.

We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let's move the world forward, together.
