China and India
Latest Uber job openings in China and India
Comparison of the two largest Asian growth markets:
China has been the most important Asian market for Uber, at least until the summer of 2015. Since June of this year, no other country has seen more new jobs posted than India, making it the largest Asian growth market. The growth rate of addtional jobs since September 2014 is twice as high for India as for China, but as the timeline with periodical snapshots shows, most of this growth in India was created between June and September 2015.
In China, the growth of Uber jobs is mostly concentrated in the Eastern provinces. In India it is spread out from North to South, with some additional concentrations in Mumbai and Pune on the West coast and in Kolkata and Chennai along the East coast. For both countries, the openings are predominantly in large metropolitan areas, like New Delhi and Mumbai, Beijing and Shanghai - all cities with 10M+ populations.
While the growth in China is spread out over many cities - with an average of 6 openings per city currently - new openings in India are in the double digits for various cities. Although a large chunk of the openings in India are not specified by location (simply advertised as a job opening in India), the remaining openings average 16 per city currently.

Average growth rate since September 2014
Showing the average growth rate since September 2014 in percentages.
As shown on the map, India's growth in additional Uber jobs is outpacing China's almost 2 to 1. This growth rate compares the period September 2014 - October 2015. Looking at the distribution of jobs by function for the two Asian markets, they both show the same top 5 functions: Operations, Local Marketing, Business, People Operations and Public Policy & Communications. The obvious absentees in both countries are Engineering jobs. These seem to stay reserved almost exclusively for US hires.
