Uber Headquarters: Who Runs Uber and Where?
When you’re working remotely for a brand that operates all around the world, it can be hard to pinpoint where your own company is located. However, the location of Uber headquarters — and the identities of the leadership team within it — is actually public knowledge that may prove helpful to you.
Ever since Uber went public in mid-2019, the company’s transparency has been greater than ever. As a result, drivers now have access to a wider library of information about the ridesharing and food delivery brand they’ve already been working for.
If you’re interested in learning more about where Uber is actually located, who makes the decisions, and how you can contact the company’s biggest influencers, keep reading below.

Where Is Uber Headquarters?
Uber Technologies Inc. is currently headquartered in downtown San Francisco, nestled right alongside other major tech companies like Twitter, Square, and Thumbtack. Its address is as follows:
1455 Market St. #400
San Francisco, CA 94103
However, be aware that this address won’t be the location of Uber headquarters for long. After several years of planning and construction, the company plans to complete its move into a brand new, custom-built global headquarters — located in the Mission Bay neighborhood of San Francisco — in 2021. As the company finishes subleasing all four of its local offices, including the original Market Street HQ, you can expect the official address of Uber headquarters to soon be updated to:
1515 Third St.
San Francisco, CA 94158
These headquarters will be just one of four Uber buildings across more than 1 million square feet. The building directly connected to the new Uber headquarters will be located at 1455 Third Street. The rest of the campus is a part of the new Chase Center arena development on 1725 Third Street.
While these buildings are to be home to over 7,000 Uber employees, there are no current plans for the campus to be open to Uber drivers, who are classified as independent contractors. Still, it’s good to know where the company’s headquarters is located, as this will be the Uber address that shows up on your Uber tax documents.
Other Uber Office Locations
In addition to the San Francisco headquarters, Uber has a lineup of over 35 regional office locations around the world. There are currently Uber offices located in the following cities and countries:
- Argentina: Buenos Aires
- Australia: Melbourne and Sydney
- Brazil: São Paulo
- Canada: Toronto
- Chile: Santiago
- Colombia: Bogotá
- Denmark: Aarhus
- Egypt: Cairo
- France: Paris
- India: Bangalore, Gurgaon, and Hyderabad
- Ireland: Limerick
- Japan: Osaka, Tokyo
- Kenya: Nairobi
- Mexico: Mexico City
- Netherlands: Amsterdam
- Philippines: Manila and Taguig City
- Singapore: Singapore
- South Africa: Johannesburg and Randburg
- Spain: Madrid
- United Arab Emirates: Dubai
- United Kingdom: London
- United States: Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Palo Alto, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Santa Monica, Seattle, Sunnyvale, and Washington, D.C.
Much like Uber’s headquarters in San Francisco, these local offices are not open to drivers or the greater public. These are simply locations at which engineers, marketers, customer service representatives, and other skilled professionals work behind the scenes to create the experience behind Uber and Uber Eats, including the Uber driver communications you receive.
Uber Executive Team
Most people recognize Travis Kalanick as the former CEO and co-founder of Uber, thanks to his highly public resignations from the leadership team and the board of directors. However, the current makeup of the Uber executive team is largely unknown to the greater public — including drivers — as is the fact that it is possible to contact each of these high-ranking team members.
Below, we’ll list out the leaders of the technology company as of January 2021 and the verified ways that you can reach out. The current Uber headquarters address should be an accurate business address for each of these team members. However, for team members who reside in different cities, we’ve additionally noted the address of their local Uber office.
Before we dive in, we will note that the leadership team is unlikely to respond to minor issues or complaints that are better directed to the Uber phone number for drivers. Executive team members are usually incredibly busy and often won’t respond to unsolicited emails. Instead, Elliot Advocacy suggests to slowly work your way up the ladder if issues aren’t resolved, only escalating to top-tier company leaders if no one else can help you resolve a major issue.
Executive team members who lead a relevant department can be good initial contacts if you’re trying to appeal for or against a big change that affects Uber drivers, Uber Eats drivers, or both. In these cases, they’re more likely to listen if you’ve gathered a large group of supporters (such as other drivers) behind you.
We’ll also note that in the near future, there may be a new leadership team member coming. Former Vice President of New Mobility Rachel Holt just recently stepped away from her position, so this team can be expected to change every once in a while.

Frequently Asked Questions
Learning more about your own company’s structure can help you with everything from doing your taxes to escalating any issues you may encounter. Here are some frequently asked questions to help you learn more:
1. Can I make an appointment to visit Uber headquarters, as an Uber driver?
Unfortunately, Uber does not have a public schedule for drivers to book appointments or even tours through. If you want to visit Uber headquarters, you will need to have a purpose for visiting and be invited directly by an Uber employee who works on the campus.
2. Are Uber Greenlight Hubs and Uber offices the same thing?
No. While Uber offices house the company’s part-time and full-time employees and are closed to the public, Uber Greenlight Hubs are designed for prospective or current Uber or Uber Eats drivers to visit. At Greenlight Hubs, you can talk to company experts in a one-on-one session, get help with the Uber Driver app, and even get your free annual vehicle inspection.
3. Where are Lyft headquarters located?
Lyft HQ is located at 185 Berry St. #5000, San Francisco, CA 94107. Interestingly, this is within walking distance of the new Uber headquarters in Mission Bay.
Head in the Right Direction
Every Uber office and employee serves a unique function for the technology company. When you know where Uber is located and how you can reach out to the people in charge, you can properly escalate the issues you encounter as a driver as needed. Even if you don’t need to reach out, at least knowing the location of Uber headquarters can keep you well-informed for your tax preparation and other documentation needs.
