About Communications at Uber

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 communications 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 backsides into fewer cars.  That’s partly about building lasting relationships with the key news outlets and journalists in every country where we operate.  It also about being creative in how we tell our story, including using social media, as well as working with the public policy team to develop campaigns that make the positive case for reform.

About this Role
We are looking for someone to lead our Communications in Latin America based in Mexico city or in Sao Paulo. This role will involve:

Building an effective, credible communications team across the region;Establishing Uber’s brand and profile with the media and third parties; andWorking to tell our story—and the story of ridesharing—in creative, inspiring ways that resonate with journalists and on social media

What we’re looking for:

Proven track record in the communications field, including leading a team or a leader in another walk of life,  who intuitively gets this stuff and may be looking for a career change
A self starter:  Uber is a company of entrepreneurs and we want to work with people who enjoy building things from the bottom up.  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 to create new regulatory frameworks that encourage innovation and alternatives to individual car ownership.  You’ll need the intellectual fire power to grasp complex policy issues as well as the ability to articulate clearly and simply how apps like Uber can help improve transportation for everyone—both orally and in writing.
A strong campaigner:  Smartphone apps are disruptive, and the interests being disrupted are deeply entrenched.  So you’ll need to put together proactive campaigns involving passengers, drivers and third parties that demonstrate there’s a better alternative to today’s outdated status quo.A team player:  Success at Uber depends on the ability to organize different teams (internally and externally) around shared goals.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 people who enjoy working with others to get stuff done—and who can deal with the ambiguity that sometimes comes from working cross-functionally.

Ideally you would have a proven track record in communications, including leading a disparate team across multiple countries—either for a company, a third party or in government.  But we’re open to people who’ve been leaders in other walks of life (e.g. marketing, journalists, government affairs) intuitively get this stuff and may be looking for a career change.  Fluency in English, both oral and written, is essential.
