Uber chooses Lisbon for Centre of Excellence in Europe.
The car hiring app firm Uber announced on Monday that it would be opening a European center of excellence in Lisbon.
The operations and support center will be “the principal source of knowledge for users and drivers throughout the European region,” the firm told local media. It will also support the Lisbon launch of UberEATS, a food delivery service.
The company said it chose Lisbon because it is a growing market and because of its ability to provide a multilingual staff. Lisbon defeated Limerick (Ireland), Krakow (Poland) and Paris (France) to attract the new headquarters.’
