Communications Lead, Korea

Communications
in Seoul, Korea, Republic of (South Korea)

About this Role

We are looking for someone to join our communications team in Korea, based in Seoul, reporting directly to the Head of Communications, North Asia. This role will involve:

  • Leading the Communications strategy for Uber Korea
  • Working with beat reporters on a daily basis, juggling a combination of proactive and reactive communications efforts that protect and enhance our reputation
  • Partnering with global and regional communications team members to promote and enhance the overall reputation of Uber
  • Coordinating communications projects and campaigns, including writing and pitching directly to press, together with PR agency
  • Working cross functionally to tell our story--and the story of mobility and technology--in creative, inspiring ways that resonate with reporters and on social media
  • Supporting our media outreach efforts with reporters & editors
  • 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. Things change 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 supported by data driven decisions.
* _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. 
* A PR strategist: You'll need a minimum of 10 years of experience in communications and/or journalism in Korea, as well as experience working with senior executives. 

Excellent understanding of the media and direct relationship with media and influencers in Korea is a must. Experience in consumer, product and crisis communications is an advantage. We are open to people with experience in another walk of life, who intuitively get this stuff and may be looking for a career change. Fluency in English and Native Korean, both oral and written is essential.

At Uber, we ignite opportunity by setting the world in motion. We take on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters get moving in more than 600 cities around the world.

We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let's move the world forward, together.

About Communications at Uber

The most successful technology companies are brilliant storytellers who can effectively engage with business, technical, and consumer audiences alike to illustrate the magic behind and the benefits of their products.

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.
