How Uber Changed The Way They Hire

So, the management team did what most companies do. They recruited through various channels, found suitable candidates, and interviewed them.

How Uber Is Going To Hire 1,000 People This Year. There's outsized attention this year on Uber, the super-fast-growing global purveyor of "classy rides" and surge pricing, and the company's CEO is boasting of the head-count explosion he's anticipating for 2014.

How Uber Is Going To Hire 1,000 People This Year

"We have 550 employees. That's approximate," Travis Kalanick, the co-founder and CEO of Uber told the Wall Street Journal. By the end of 2014, he said: "We're definitely going to be well over 1,000, maybe in the 1,500-to-2,000 range. " Those numbers--hiring between 450 and 1,450 employees--certainly make for a wide range.

Bringing on more than one employee a day would be a tall order for any company. When I interviewed Kalanick last year, he explained to me a little about Uber's unique hiring process.

Now we know how many drivers Uber has — and have a better idea of what they’re making​

(Eric Risberg/Associated Press) The rapidly growing technology company Uber released internal data on Thursday arguing that drivers who use the app to give rides-for-hire in their personal cars are making more money as chauffeurs than professional taxi drivers do — as much as $17 an hour in the District and Los Angeles, $23 in San Francisco and $30 in New York. Those numbers, released as part of the most extensive peek yet into its business model, have only inflamed debate about what companies like Uber mean for the economy and whether the kind of work they offer is sustainable for the tens of thousands of people who have signed up. Uber and its boosters say those earnings — and the breakneck pace at which drivers are joining its ranks — offer proof that the company is creating new kinds of opportunity for workers who want neither a 9-to-5 job nor a boss.
