Uber Aggressively Hiring Staff in Vancouver Despite City Moratorium

CBC News reported this morning that Uber is looking to hire managers in Vancouver despite the city government’s decision last week to impose a six-month moratorium on issuing new taxi licences.

City council voted to use that time to study what the impacts might be of several changes to taxi licensing in the city, including how a ride-share service like Uber would fit into the picture.

Despite the regulatory setback, the company has posted jobs for a marketing manager, an operations and logistics manager and a general manager — all based in Vancouver.

“We have made it no secret that we hope to return to Vancouver, and knowing that it takes time to build the perfect team, we’re eager to talk to people,” Uber’s spokeswoman said in an email to CBC News.
