Global product design+vision, creative direction, and launch

  Role   Global Head of Design, Uber for Business and Uber Health     Problem   Organizations need more efficient, cost-effective ways to move the people that matter to them. Their survival depends on foot-traffic, honored appointments, or customer service. But current transportation offerings are either inflexible, high-cost, or inefficient.     Opportunity   We can leverage Uber’s core, marketplace-based technology to power a flexible, business-tier product designed to enable organizations to provide rides for anyone, at scale. This unlocks the opportunity to not only use Uber to create efficiencies around transportation processes, but also introduces a never-before-seen platform to create marketing campaigns specifically geared to drive foot-traffic to a location. To summarize in the words of Uber’s positioning statement, “movement ignites opportunity.”  My specific role was to lead and support a multidisciplinary project team of 5 including contributors from product design, communications/brand design, UX research, and content strategy, while defining and generating R&D and business leadership alignment around a product vision and peripheral ecosystem strategy.
