Celebrating the Women Who Move Us

In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8th, we’re dedicating this week to sharing the stories of the women in our community who inspire, lead, and help make this city an amazing place to live.

Whether the woman is your mom, sister, wife, partner, neighbor or friend (or all of the above) we want to hear why they inspire you.

Throughout the week, we will collect your nominations, and on Sunday, March 14th, we’ll choose three stories to be featured for our #WomenMoveUs series. In addition, we will treat these inspirational women to a night out in Seattle, courtesy of Hotel Max, Hotel 1000, Broadway Across America, and Bar Sajor.

Stay tuned throughout the week to read about (and be inspired by) the women who ride, partner, work, and live in our city.

UberEATS: Using technology to build a reliable food delivery experience

A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button.

And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS.
