As Uber Technologies Inc. tries to move past an array of scandals without its founding leader, running the core business falls to a trio of 30-somethings who had no experience managing anything of this scale before joining the startup.

Officially, Uber will be managed by a 14-person committee until the return of Chief Executive Officer Travis Kalanick, who’s on leave after a pair of workplace probes found dozens of mishandled human-resources claims during his tenure. But thanks to a corporate structure he set up in 2013, three people in that committee will be in charge of Uber’s main operations. Their work accounts for nearly all revenue the company generates.
