American transportation network company UBER has announced plans to create 200 new jobs at its Centre of Excellence in Kraków by the end of 2019. The company will develop its business service centre as well as create a division dedicated to electric bikes. Uber is looking for engineers, data analysts, and programmers. The company has also announced that the office in Warsaw will be the main hub for the entire region of Central and Eastern Europe. Taxi drivers protested outside the Ministry of Digitalisation and a spokesperson for Warsaw Trade Union of Taxi Drivers stated that they ‘do not accept the activities of such a company as Uber’.

In Poland, Uber has been operating since 2014 and has units in five locations: Wrocław, Warsaw, Kraków, Trójmiasto and Poznań. Previous restructuring took place in 2016, when 140 jobs were created.
