Content Strategist/Copywriter - Internship/Co-op (Summer 2017)

Uber Overview

We’re seeking talented and thoughtful copywriting interns to help define and execute against a giant vision that builds upon what Uber has brought to the world so far. If you have the right stuff to join the Uber team as an intern, you’ll work among best-in-class copywriters, , designers, marketing managers, and product managers in a fast-paced, rapidly growing, hybrid (technology/operations) environment.

We are highly user-centric and we deeply believe we can innovate our way out of any box. The role demands great execution, bold innovation, obsession with quality, fearlessness and optimism to be inspired by the unknown and never settle, solving problems with

creativity while keeping the audience in mind and ambition to take projects to the finish line.

We might be a good match if…

You have a passion for great creative, and some work to prove it.

Whether marketing, advertising, UX/UI, or all of the above; we’re interested in passionate writers that believe in hard work and great creative. You have at least one project that demonstrates this ability and the desire to create many more.

You believe in craftsmanship and creating elegant, compelling work.

Your growing portfolio has some stand-out work. You’re a walking encyclopedia of the latest trends in content and messaging and have ideas and opinions on how to make many of them even better.

During your summer internship, you’ll get a chance to…

Work side-by-side with talented, thoughtful writers.

You’ll be embedded directly in one of Uber’s teams, working on a project in close collaboration with other writers and designers. You’ll learn what it takes to write for millions of people – and hopefully teach us something too.

Launch campaigns and products alongside designers and other copywriters.

Great content lives outside of a text editor. You’ll work alongside other members of a cross functional team to put your work in the real world. You’ll experience release cycles and learn what details matter at each stage of the project development process.

  • Must submit portfolio along with resume for consideration. Must be actively enrolled in a Design degree program.*

Job Description


  • Competitive hourly pay.
  • Catered meals and unlimited snacks.
  • Monthly housing stipend, reimbursement for cell phone bill and credits for Uber rides.
  • The rare opportunity to change the world such that everyone around you is using the product you built. We’re not just another social web app, we’re moving real people and assets and reinventing transportation and logistics globally.
  • Sharp, motivated co-workers in a fun office environment.
