With plans to hire more than 2,000 in Chicago, Uber Technologies has dedicated its recently-signed Old Post Office space as the national headquarters for its Uber Freight division. The 463,000-square-foot lease makes Chicago Uber’s second largest corporate location after San Francisco.
Uber Freight HQ will be focused on Freight engineering operations, sales and account management. “Chicago is the heart of America’s transportation and logistics industry, and there is no better place to continue to grow our teams and open our dedicated Freight HQ,” said Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi.
Added Andrea Zopp, president and EO of World Business Chicago, “From major companies like Uber to rapidly growing start-ups, Chicago’s tech economy is creating new jobs for our incredibly diverse talent pool.”
Uber is partnering with the City of Chicago and the Chicago Cook Workforce Partnership, which will receive more than $80,000 in grant funding as part of Uber’s Community Impact Initiative.
Connect Chicago Fall 2019 will take place Oct. 29 in Chicago. For more information, or to register, click here.
