Teams in Johannesburg
Our Marketing mission is to grow Uber into one of the world’s strongest brands generating brand love and loyalty. We set about to deeply understand our audience in order to align value propositions to their needs.
We brand like a leader through creating/maintaining strong presence in the ridesharing industry, investing in hallmark experiences that drive engagement, and amplifying our presence in key consideration moments.
The Operations teams are the heart and soul of Uber. This is the team that takes our global product and localizes it to an assigned market, while creating thousands of economic opportunities for drivers, and making transportation more accessible for riders. We’re in the midst of incredible growth, which requires hard work.
The Central Operations team is the powerhouse behind operations in Sub-Saharan Africa. We work together with stakeholders in regional and functional teams across all markets, to provide strategic operational guidance to execute centrally. The team is 15 people strong, and we’re passionate about growing this exciting market.
At Uber, support is more than just answering questions. It's about using the insights that customers give us to help grow the business and improve the customer experience. Moreover, it’s about providing amazing support that establishes trust within our community - for both riders and drivers. We're obsessed about providing the highest quality service, in the smartest and most efficient way. For Uber to continue its growth and success, we need to be able to not only improve but also scale our fast-growing support operations.
Our Public Policy team is responsible for working with policymakers and third-parties to make the positive case for Uber. That's partly about building lasting relationships in the cities where we operate - with politicians and their staff so they understand the benefits of ridesharing. This includes strategizing on the best possible local regulatory framework and developing campaigns to push reform through.
Our Communications team is responsible for building relationships with local media, as well as educating the public about Uber’s business model and products. This includes ensuring that users are aware of Uber’s contribution to the future of urban mobility. By telling the Uber story externally, we’re making sure to support the company’s short-term and long-term business goals.
We’re a team with several years experience, which enables us to provide top-notch legal advice across the SSA region! Our first step is to understand the business, so that we can help guide it through navigating complex legal issues. We work with specialist legal counsel in Uber’s operations around the globe, so you always get the best advice possible.
Our legal team provides strategic and risk advice to enable the company to grow sustainably, and work together as one team, collaborating to provide a cohesive approach across SSA.
