Jones was Uber's second in command to CEO Travis Kalanick.
After just six months, Uber's president of ride sharing Jeff Jones has left the company. "It is unfortunate that this was announced through the press".
Uber has weathered a storm of controversies in just first few months of 2017. He apologized and promised to hire a chief operating officer, saying he needed "leadership help". Earlier this month, Ed Baker, Uber's vice-president of product and growth, and Charlie Miller, Uber's famed security researcher, departed. Former Uber Engineer, Susan Fowler, who was one of multiple people to leave the company in a short period of time, blasted Uber with sexual harassment claims in a viral blog post in February 2017. In his statement, Jones says that he has realized that his beliefs and approach to leadership clash with what he has seen in Uber in his 6-month stint, perhaps referring to the scandals that the company has been involved in.
Jones, previously chief marketing officer at Target, was hired at Uber to help soften the company's often aggressive image.
"I'll be staying on as an adviser", McClendon said in a statement.

"If Uber truly cares about "growing up" and listening to drivers, they should start by adding a tipping option", he wrote. An established digital cartographer, McClendon was an alum of Google where he was was "instrumental" in Google Earth, and "his departure from Uber is concerning considering how strategically important mapping and geolocation services are to the ride-hailing company". The senior director of engineering at Uber's Advanced Technologies Center, Raffi Krikorian, left last week.
Not long after that, a former employee alleged in a blog post that her superior sexually harassed her and other female employees, but that the company failed to punish him. He ordered an internal investigation and asked board member Ariana Huffington and former Attorney General Eric Holder to look into the allegations, including the complicity of HR.
But that rapid ascent has been marked by controversy. In addition, The New York Times exposed Uber's "Greyball" program to circumvent regulators, and a leaked video of Kalanick berating an Uber driver received widespread attention on social media and beyond. Kalanick later apologized to the driver. Since then, Uber has raced into self-driving auto research and, last August, paid $670 million for a months-old self-driving truck startup called Otto. He was alleged with sexual harassment by his previous employer, namely Alphabet's Inc's Google.
