Behind the wheel with Dagoberto, Uber Eats LA courier-partner

December 15, 2017 | Los Angeles

Uber Eats courier Dagoberto wanted to find a flexible earning opportunity that would give him the freedom to work in his own time. After hearing about Uber Eats, Dagoberto knew he had found that exact opportunity and signed up. He has been hooked ever since! Besides for providing him with an extra source of income, being an Uber Eats courier allows him to work according to his own schedule and experience Los Angeles foodie scene, one trip at a time.

How did Dagoberto get started? Dagoberto initially drove for Uber, instead using Uber Eats as a eater. However, after becoming stressed at work due to an unstable and conflicting schedule, Dagoberto began asking other Uber Eats couriers about their experience on the app. After hearing positive reviews and doing his own research, he quickly signed up.

Dagoberto loves the combination of opportunity and flexibility driving with Uber Eats provides. It allows him, along with other couriers, to work when it’s convenient for him - earning money between other jobs, driving more one month than the next to cover an unexpected expense, and generally fitting Uber Eats into his own schedule. His favorite part? The ability to cash out his earnings instantly.

We asked Dagoberto what advice he would give to first time Uber Eats couriers. “You get back what you give off”, he says. He explains that when you’re respectful and have a positive attitude about work, you’ll find you get a positive response back.


When Dagoberto isn’t driving he spends his time meditating, reading and catching up with friends from high school. He hopes to have a career in psychology and be able to support his family.

Today, Dagoberto is one of hundreds of Uber Eats delivery-partners across SoCal. These driver-partners are as unique as the the city, driving full-time and part-time, on weekends and weekdays. Join them and drive towards your own goal today:
