Meet the Team – Anand

The past 20 months have been an awesome ride for Uber in Chennai. As we have been working to bring safe and reliable transportation options here, this growth has brought many new faces to the team, who have been working hard to make Uber the best that it can be for this city.

Today we’re kicking off the introductions with Anand, the most recent addition to the Uber Operations team. With his natural curiosity, diverse interests and fun-loving sense of humor, he has become an instant favorite around the office as he spends his days working tirelessly to make sure that rides in the city are safe, reliable and convenient. Read on for more about Anand!
