Introducing: Uber Seattle’s Traveling Circus!

Ladies and Gentleman! This last Friday, Team Uber Seattle threw on our Uber t-shirts, rolled up our sleeves, and headed out for a day of sharing the Uber love with some of our favorite tech and startup companies around the Emerald City. Our stops included techstars, SEOmoz, Adobe, Google, and the creators of your favorite LOL cats, Cheezeburger.

With such great stops, we needed to bring our A-game. So we created the Uber Traveling Tech Circus! Sadly, we are not good at juggling pins so we decided to have our tech friends play the ultimate game of chance…Cup-and-Ball! The masters of hand-eye coordination that got it on the first try  (or those with some extra good luck on their side) won a $50 credit nicely packed in a box of goodies! We had a handful of winners (including Ben Huh, who clearly had the luck of memes on his side) and many others received a $5 credit for their Cup and Ball skills. Basically, everyone had a ton of fun and can’t wait to do it again!

Does this sound like a good time to you? Do you want to make everyone at the office laugh for even a few minutes? Then it sounds like your company is perfect for visit from the Uber Traveling Tech Circus! Drop me a line if you’d like to be considered for a future circus show: jen at uber dot com.

No elephants, LOLCats, or honey badgers were injured in the creation of this circus.

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