Car Service to Expand in Philly

Uber is expanding in Philadelphia.

The car service is seeking a new operations and logistics manager to expand service locally, the CityPaper reports.

On its website, the San Francisco-based company describes the position as a "unique opportunity to help drive growth." 

Currently Uber only offers luxury towncars in Philadelphia through its UberBlack service.  Professional drivers, who are licensed by the Philadelphia Parking Authority, operate those vehicles, according to CityPaper. Customers can order rides through their computer or smartphone app.
