We're looking for a design professional who is passionate about innovative storytelling and has experience in both concept creation and amazing visual execution to join our ATG team. You will lead initiatives to bring a differentiated rider experience to life, and shape the way the experience comes to life across touchpoints through a full range of skills including, communication design, art direction, interaction design, animation, and graphic design.

    Come shape the Uber ATG self-driving and invent innovative ways to introduce self-driving vehicles to the world. The right candidate will be an excellent communicator, comfortable in a high-velocity environment, and passionate about content, experience and brand building.
