Uber has a process of collecting signals during interviews, and roles on who is responsible to collect certain signals. We have a policy of no brilliant jerks among others. And if we see people who display signs of what a brilliant jerk is, it is a blocker for hiring.

I cannot speak or represent all of Uber. I can talk for myself and I will follow this approach whether at Uber or at other places, as it’s the approach to create high-performing and safe teams.
