  • Uber has seen a bumpy few years as the pandemic rocked its ride-hailing business.
  • Salary data shared with the US government shows Uber’s compensation rates are still competitive. 
  • Here are the average salaries for 252 job positions at Uber.

Uber has seen a tumultuous couple of years as the pandemic drastically slowed its ride-hailing service, causing it to lose nearly $6.8 billion in 2020. The company has also seen high levels of employee turnover and backlash over some of its pandemic policies. 

The company told employees in late March that they’d have to return to the office by April 25 and spend at least 50% of their time in an Uber hub. The policy is in stark contrast to its archrival, Lyft, which embraced a fully flexible model, allowing its employees to work remotely as often as they’d like. 

Uber drivers also expressed anger with the company in March, when the company began charging customers 45 cents to 55 cents per ride as a surcharge to help offset soaring fuel costs. Some drivers argued the surcharge barely helped to cover the rising cost of fuel, with one driver calling the fees “woefully inadequate.”  

Though Uber — one of the largest employers in San Francisco — has gone through rounds of job cuts in the last several years, its compensation for its full-time employees remains competitive with the largest Silicon Valley tech firms, Insider reported in April. 

Insider examined the average salaries of a range of positions at Uber based on public data reported in 2021 to the US Office of Foreign Labor Certification. (The agency requires companies to disclose compensation for permanent and temporary employees from outside the US to ensure the firms aren’t paying them less than the average wage earned by their peers.)
