Uber - Communications Manager


About Uber

We’re changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago we were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now we’re a part of the logistical fabric of more than 600 cities around the world. Whether it’s a ride, a sandwich, or a package, we use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.

For the people who drive with Uber, our app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, we help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer.

And that’s just what we’re doing today. We’re thinking about the future, too. With teams working on autonomous trucking and self-driving cars, we’re in for the long haul. We’re reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.

About the Role

We are looking for someone to lead Uber’s communications efforts in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. You will report directly to the Director of Public Affairs for the Northeast US, and will work in close consultation with Uber’s business team based in New York City.

What You’ll Do

Building and executing effective, credible communications strategies to demonstrate the impact of Uber’s product offerings on providing access to transportation, congestion relief, flexible work opportunities, emissions reduction, and the future of transit
Serving as an on-the-record spokesperson for Uber who can clearly, accurately, and persuasively convey the company’s point of view before external audiences
Identifying, creating, and drawing maximum value from opportunities for Uber to shape public policy debates
Cultivating relationships with reporters and news/opinion editors across a three-state territory of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, while being based in New York City.
Working closely with Uber’s Public Policy, Operations, Legal, Marketing, and central Communications teams to tell our story as a technology company
Establishing Uber’s brand with media and third parties
Developing and leading Uber’s external communications to support our relationships and partnerships with governments, third-party groups, and business development partners

What You’ll Need

A minimum of 8 years professional experience in communications, public relations, media or public affairs.
A self starter: Uber is a company of entrepreneurs and we want to work with people who enjoy building things from the bottom up too. Stuff changes fast in our world so you’ll need to be highly adaptable as well as calm under pressure;
A great advocate: We’re looking for people who can distill complex ideas into simple, but intellectually credible, arguments. You’ll need to write well and have the creative ability to tell stories—about our product, people and the ways we’re helping to improve life for passengers, drivers and cities.
A strong campaigner: Smartphone apps are disruptive, and the interests being disrupted are deeply entrenched. We succeed by putting together effective campaigns with third parties on behalf of the passengers and drivers who use the app. That means you’ll have a bias for action in everything you do—and a willingness to engage in debates, that can often become heated.
A team player: Success at Uber depends on the ability to organize different teams (internally and externally) around shared goals. It’s why we’re looking for well organized people who enjoy working with others to get stuff done—and who can deal with the ambiguity that sometimes comes from working cross-functionally

About the Team

The most successful consumer technology companies are brilliant storytellers, who put their products—as well as the benefits of those products—front and center in every communication.

Our team is responsible for telling Uber’s story to the media and third parties: whether it’s transforming how we get around town and the lives of people who value independent, flexible work; or cutting congestion in cities by getting more people into fewer cars. That’s partly about building lasting relationships with the key news outlets and journalists in every country where we operate. It’s also about being creative in how we tell our story, including the use of social media, as well as working with the public policy team to develop campaigns that make the positive case for reform.
