Senior Associate, Public Affairs - U.S. South Region

Public Policy
in Miami, Florida

About the Role

We’re looking for someone to join the U.S. Public Policy & Communications team as a Public Affairs Senior Associate. Our Policy & Communications team is responsible for telling Uber's story to the media, third parties, and government officials - whether it's transforming how we get around cities and the lives of people who value independent, flexible work; supporting delivery from restaurants and merchants, or; partnering with governments to expand their transportation options.  This role is based in Miami, FL and reports directly to the Head of Public Policy & Communications for the South region.  The role will cover Florida and other states in the region including Louisiana and Tennessee.

What You'll Do

  • Strengthen Uber's brand and profile with policy makers, elected officials, third parties and media.
  • ​​Develop Uber's legislative, communications and political strategy throughout the region on Uber Rides, Uber Eats, Uber Health, grocery delivery, transit, etc. This includes tracking legislation relevant to Uber at the municipal, county and state levels.
  • Work to ensure that the regulatory frameworks in the region enable the benefits of Uber for our customers and the cities we operate in.
  • Prepare, update, and prioritize messaging to respond to issues.
  • Partner with government and third parties on innovative transport solutions.
  • Partner with business leadership to support sustainable growth of Uber’s mobility and delivery businesses.
  • Support and work closely with Uber’s Policy, Communications, Legal, Mobility, and Delivery teams.
  • Manage a team of external policy and communications consultants.

Basic Qualifications

  • 5+ years of experience in public affairs, campaigns, government, law or public policy
  • Bachelor's Degree

Preferred Qualifications

  • Strong campaigner: We succeed by putting together effective campaigns with third parties on behalf of the passengers, eaters, and drivers who use the app. That means you'll have a bias for action in everything you do, and also building strong intuition for business, covering issues related to mobility, delivery, safety, insurance, future of work and/or automation.
  • Self starter: We are a company of entrepreneurs, and we want to work with people who enjoy building things from the bottom up too. Things change fast at a global company like Uber so you'll need to be highly adaptable as well as calm under pressure.

  • Expert advocate: We want someone who can distill complex ideas into simple, but intellectually credible, arguments. This person should write well and have the creative ability to tell stories--about our product, people and the ways we're helping to improve life for riders, drivers, delivery people and cities across Florida and the southern United States.

  • Collaborative teammate: Success at Uber depends on the ability to coordinate different teams (internally and externally) around shared goals. We look for collaborators who can get stuff done--and who can deal with the ambiguity that sometimes comes from working cross-functionally.

  • Past experience in the political and policy landscape in Florida is a plus.

For Miami, FL-based roles: The base salary range for this role is USD$112,000 per year - USD$124,000 per year.
