Tell us a bit about your path
I grew up in Santiago, Chile before moving to Bremen and starting my life in Europe. I graduated in the summer of 2013.
Then I did a traineeship at Anheuser Busch (ABinBev) at the Beck’s headquarter in Bremen. Then I had this desire to get into technology and work at a technology company. So I did a second traineeship at Dropbox. I moved from Germany to Ireland. I was in Dublin for a year and a half where I did a mix of sales and recruitment and that is where I found my passion for human resources and recruiting. I got contacted by Uber, moved to Amsterdam in the Netherlands and started my career there. Now I have been 3 years at Uber, I lead a small team and focus on recruiting operations and marketing roles in our headquarters.
What do your days look like currently?
My days are part strategy, part execution. I spend a lot of time planning headcount for the departments of Uber that I support and consequently understanding what our capacity model looks like to reach our hiring targets for that quarter/semester/year. At the same time, I support the team with senior-level hiring across Operations and Marketing.
