Amid turbulence at Uber, president resigns

SFGate Monday, 20 March 2017 ()
Several high-level executives have resigned, and the company is reeling from allegations of sexual harassment. “The beliefs and approach to leadership that have guided my career are inconsistent with what I saw and experienced at Uber and I could no longer continue as president of the ridesharing business,” Jones said in a statement to The Chronicle. Uber Technologies Inc. spokeswoman Sophie Schmidt confirmed Jones’ departure Sunday, saying that the company wanted to “thank Jeff for this six months at the company and wish him all the best.” Last month, Amit Singhal, Uber’s former senior vice president of engineering, resigned from the company after reports emerged that he failed to disclose a sexual harassment allegation made against him while he was employed at Google. Just days before that, Susan Fowler, a former Uber engineer, penned an explosive public post online that chronicled what she described as a deeply embedded culture of sexism and sexual harassment at the company that was allowed to persist because of dysfunctional leadership. Fowler’s post in part prompted Kalanick to launch a search for a chief operating officer for Uber, “a peer who can partner with me to write the next chapter in our journey,” Kalanick wrote on the company’s blog this month. Uber was also criticized in January for appearing to take advantage of protests in New York against President Trump’s immigration ban by eliminating surge pricing.
