Uber needs a new CEO after its founder CEO, Travis Kalanick, was removed yesterday at the request of a number of Uber's shareholders.
They also need two new independent directors and a large number of open executive positions filled.
The near daily turmoil facing the company has made some wonder why anyone would want to take the top job.
However, I'd argue the opposite: Uber's open CEO position is the most attractive CEO job available in tech.
Here's a summary of why critics say you wouldn't want the job:
So a new CEO must face all these issues head-on. What a headache! Why take the job at all?
Nevertheless, there will be a long line of candidates — men and women — who will be fighting tooth and nail to get the Uber CEO job. If a company were perfect, the CEO job wouldn't be available. I'd say Uber's is the most attractive one open in tech today.
So don't let the negative headlines fool you. Uber is the top open CEO job in tech right now. And there will be a fight among a short list of candidates to get that job.
