Uber co-founder Garrett Camp is stepping back from his role as director of the board, and will move to become a board observer, where he will focus on the company’s product strategy.

Camp announced the move on a medium blog post this morning. He said that in the last 10 years since Uber launched in San Francisco, he’s “learned a lot, and realized that I’m most helpful when focused on product strategy & design, and this is where I’d like to focus going forward.”

“I will continue to work with Dara (Khosrowshahi, Uber CEO) and the product and technology leadership teams to brainstorm new ideas, iterate on plans and designs, and continue to innovate at scale. We have a strong and diverse team in place, and I’m confident everyone will navigate well during these turbulent times.” He said.

Camp ended his statement by thanking all of the Uber employees he’s worked with, saying he’s excited to help the company brainstorm “the next big idea”.

Travis Kalanick, Uber’s other co-founder, left Uber’s board entirely in December last year. He was previously forced out of the CEO role in 2017, after controversy about the company’s toxic workplace culture.
