Communications Senior Associate – Uber

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 & mdash ;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 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 the use of 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 Work On Our Communications Team In West Africa, Based In Lagos. This Role, Will Involve

  • Supporting Uber communications in West Africa;
  • Establishing Uber’s brand and profile with the media and third parties; and
  • Working to tell our story & mdash; and the story of ridesharing & mdash ;in creative, inspiring ways that resonate with journalists and on social media.


What We’re Looking For

To succeed you’ll need to be:

  • 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.

Ideally you would have 5+ years communications experience. But we’re open to people with experience in other walks of life (e.g. marketing, journalism, the law), who intuitively get this stuff and are interested in pursuing a different career. Fluency in English, both oral and written, is essential.
