Recode/The Verge By Aaron ZelmanCEO of an online gaming company and former Uber employee.
The company was one of the first to hire a former employee, and it’s now hiring a new one.
The tech company said on Tuesday it’s hiring a man named Justin Boesch, who spent 18 months working as an Uber driver before being fired last week.
The hiring follows a string of recent high-profile departures from the company.
The company announced on Monday that it would be closing its doors in the next few months.CEO of a new startup.
Justin Boesh, who worked for Uber for 18 months.
Boesh was one a number of Uber employees who worked at its San Francisco office from March 2016 through December 2017.
In addition to his time at the company, he worked at the startup as a consultant and a software engineer.
The company says Boeshe will start his first job with it next month.
Uber’s chief legal officer said on Monday the company was “deeply disappointed” by Boeshen’s dismissal.

When Boeshes resignation was announced, Kalanicks was quick to say it was a difficult time for Uber and that the company would be hiring “people of character” to help.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Boeshi was fired because of his past Uber employment, but Uber said in a statement on Monday he was fired for “conduct unbecoming an Uber employee.”
Boeshe worked as a contractor for Uber’s San Mateo, California, office from September 2016 to February 2017.
He said that he had been working for Uber since the company started in 2015 and that he was offered a full-time job as a driver in the San Francisco area in the summer of 2016.
“We are deeply saddened to hear that Justin Bolesh has been let go by Uber,” Uber said.
“We are hiring people of character for this position and we expect them to show the same commitment to our community as Justin did.”
Uber’s other employees, including two drivers, were also fired.
Boesheds former co-workers have not been hired by the company and are still being paid.
Uber says it will hire an internal contractor to replace Boeshet.
Betsheds resignation came after the company announced it was cutting 1,500 jobs in 2018 and announced that it was closing its San Mateopan, California office.
Uber said on Friday that it had hired a replacement for Boesht and would start hiring in the coming weeks.
Boeshes departure is likely the latest in a string that has seen hundreds of other former Uber employees leave the company since it started in 2014.
Earlier this month, an Uber-backed startup that used Uber’s app was acquired by a rival.
Uber has also announced it will be ending its “partnership program” with Lyft.
Boeys resignation comes after other employees have left Uber over similar issues.
In October, the company suspended former Uber engineer Chris Cushenan from his job as part of a plan to hire more employees from outside the company’s workforce.
Cushenans termination came after he was found to have used a fake driver’s license in a ride-hailing sting operation in 2014, which resulted in the arrest of former Uber co-founder Garrett Campisi.
Uber was ordered to pay Campisi $25 million in legal fees.
Uber has also been hit with an employee lawsuit that alleges it discriminated against employees on the basis of gender.
