How We Design on the UberEATS Team

Creating the future of food delivery takes empathy, innovation, and an appetite for complex logistical challenges.

We Immerse Deeply

After immersing themselves in the world of delivery partners, UberEATS designers felt the pain of finding parking and locating entries to restaurants. We added a feature to the Driver App that provides step by step directions from restaurants to facilitate smoother pickups.

We Iterate Quickly

We launched the UberEATS app with a simple order tracking feature (left). After learning that customers wanted more info about their delivery, we designed the second iteration (right) to provide a richer, more detailed experience.

We Innovate Constantly

The innovative Restaurant Manager Dashboard provides sales analytics on individual items that helps chefs see how changes in things like packaging affects the sales and quality of dishes.
