Uber president Jeff Jones quits after six months in role

20 March 2017, 03:31 | Marlene Myers

Uber President Jeff Jones is reportedly stepping down as President at Uber after just over six months in the role.

Second in command at the vehicle hailing firm to Travis Kalanick, Jones had departed because his role was "not the situation he signed on for", according to United States website Recode.

Jones, previously an executive with retailer Target, joined Uber six month ago as its president of ride-sharing.

Jones' departure is not a direct result of the company's search for a new COO, one that could've outranked him, but because Uber was "not the situation he signed on for", according to Recode.

Even if they hadn't and it was just a common foul, the Hogs still had a 3-point lead after Barford made both free throws. The return of this matchup is a symbolic reminder of what once was and what is to come.

Kalanick praised Jones' contributions to Uber, including the company's "first brand reputation study, which will help set our course in the coming months and year".

Jones is the latest to quit the company after a string of high profile exits including that of Amit Singhal who was asked to resign because of a sexual harassment allegation against hime in his previous job at Alphabet Inc's Google.

The controversies have cast doubt even among Uber's oldest investors on Kalanick's ability to lead a company valued at $70 billion with plans to go public in the next few years.

And earlier this month Uber confirmed it had used a secret technology program dubbed "Greyball", which effectively changes the app view for specific riders, to evade authorities in cities where the service has been banned. It is unclear whether the new position influenced Jones' decision, as he oversaw operations as president and was second only Kalanick.
