Uber president has resigned after six months in office

BBC – Uber president Jeff Jones is leaving the company after less than six months.

A source at the taxi booking app told the BBC the resignation was “completely unexpected”.

They said Mr Jones was frustrated the company was hiring a new chief operating officer and that he was not among the candidates.

But according to technology news site Recode, Mr Jones left because of Uber’s continued struggle with issues around sexism and sexual harassment.

He told the magazine that the “beliefs and approach to leadership that have guided my career are inconsistent with what I saw and experienced at Uber”.

Uber said in a statement on Sunday: “We want to thank Jeff for his six months at the company and wish him all the best.”
