Esther Porte joined Uber in SF as a product marketing manager in late 2016. Born in France (and raised elsewhere), she’s passionate about how transportation connects people, transforms cities and generations, all while reflecting a country’s own history. In her spare time, she plays soccer with an incredible team and spends time planning her next weekend getaway.
Thanos Diacakis joined Uber’s Bike team in 2017. Prior to Uber he worked in CTO and VP Engineering roles for a variety of technology startups spanning hardware and software. When he’s not at his desk, he enjoys being on his bike, skis, or on top of some mountain.
Making JUMP Bikes' semi-dockless electric bicycles available on Uber's platform not only added a popular new transportation type for Uber riders, but also marked an important step in how we can use our technology to broaden transportation options.
