BOSTON, Oct. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Uber and Jobcase, Inc., parent company of Jobcase.com, which serves a membership community of over 60 million Americans, announced an API integration that enables driver-partners to use their ratings to stand out to prospective employers.
"Many drivers say they choose Uber because they want to be their own boss and get work at the touch of a button. It's work that fits around your life, and not the other way around. We couldn't be more excited to work with innovative companies like Jobcase to help drivers get to where they want to go in work and in life," said Chris Saad, Head of Product for the Developer Platform at Uber.
Jobcase will provide Uber driver-partners a platform enabling drivers to show their ratings directly on their Jobcase profiles - a highlight to their commitment to excellence as they seek new job opportunities.
"Providing drivers the opportunity to highlight their ratings on their Jobcase profile will help them stand out to prospective employers and achieve their professional goals," said Fred Goff, CEO of Jobcase. "We're also excited to announce that we are integrating the Jobcase Common App via Uber API's in order to streamline the signup process for prospective drivers. This benefits Jobcasers everywhere who wish to supplement their income or improve their work experience by becoming an Uber driver-partner."
"We're committed to making the Uber experience more rewarding for everyone who drives with Uber, and our API integration with Jobcase will help us deliver on what matters most to them," continued Saad.
Both companies are committed to empowering people to make the most of their work lives on their own terms. Added Goff, "This integration is just the beginning of greater opportunity for millions of people in this country in 2016 and globally going forward."
