Job Description

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—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.

What you'll do

We are looking for someone to lead our corporate communications efforts in Indonesia, based in Jakarta. You will report directly to the Head of Communications, Indonesia. This role will involve:

  • Helping develop our relationships with reporters across Indonesia at both a national and city level
  • Establishing Uber's brand and and increasing the profile of Uber leadership with the media and third parties in Indonesia
  • Working to tell our story—and the story of ridesharing—in creative, inspiring ways that resonate with journalists and on social media.
  • Partnering with global and regional corporate communications team members to build communications strategies, and campaigns, that promote and enhance the overall reputation of UberWhat you'll need

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, honest and compelling communications. You'll need to write well and have the creative ability to tell stories—about our product, culture, people and the ways we're helping to improve life for passengers, drivers and cities.
  • A strong influencer: We succeed by building effective relationships, and using those relationships to enable the best possible outcome for the Uber brand, and employees. Open and honest communication is paramount. 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 8+ years of experience in communications. 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 Bahasa Indonesia, both oral and written, is essential.
