I’ve been told by my recruiter that Uber is going on a hiring freeze for all data science and product analytics roles. My onsite was scheduled in a week

Anyone at Uber can confirm / provide details?

    I'm a candidate who was about to do my onsite as well. My recruiter said the same thing. My friend in Uber confirmed it with me. Very curious as to why there's a hiring freeze ... Usually signals a financial problem but doesn't seem likely with Uber.

    the layoffs seem to be focused on marketing tho.

    funny enough my recruiter just reached out to me to let me know that the data sci position I was interviewing for just got taken off the hiring freeze lol. not sure how interested I am now though given all the back and forth and apaprent instability.
