One of the world’s fastest growing companies
Founded by Travis Kalanick and Garrett Camp in 2009, Uber’s app seamlessly connects users to the nearest available private driver. Uber is currently in over 208 cities around the world, including New York, London, and Paris, and is growing rapidly in New Zealand. Uber is currently available in Auckland and Wellington. Uber’s rapidly expanding global presence continues to revolutionise the way the world travels.
Where Sidekicker fits in:
Uber uses Sidekicker to find and manage their contract workforce in New Zealand, consisting predominantly of office temp staff, on-field brand ambassadors and operations assistants for on-boarding new drivers. The ability to pull in additional resources and skills quickly and efficiently, right when they need them, has helped them grow drastically in New Zealand. As Simon Rossi, Uber’s General Manager, states:
“Having access to our own Sidekicks on demand has helped Uber grow rapidly in New Zealand while keeping our core team lean but well supported.” – Simon Rossi, General Manager
One of the core roles our top business support Sidekicks play at Uber is assisting with the on-boarding of its ride sharing drivers. Safety remains one of Uber’s top priorities, and every ride sharing partner is screened and on-boarded by Uber’s team. The on-demand use of Sidekicks allows the Uber team to on-board drivers quickly and safely.
