Business Uber President, Jeff Jones Resigns

Jones' departure comes days after Uber CEO Travis Kalanick said the company will hire a chief operating officer who can help write its "next chapter."

The San Francisco-based firm has been hit by several controversies.

The news of Jones' departure comes a month after a former employee alleged in a blog post that Uber routinely ignores sexual harassment, resulting in #DeleteUber trending on Twitter.
