International Tax Associate

Uber Overview..Job DescriptionAbout Uber

Uber is a technology company that is changing the way the world thinks about transportation. We are building technology people use everyday. Whether it's heading home from work, getting a meal delivered from a favorite restaurant, or a way to earn extra income, Uber is becoming part of the fabric of daily life.

We're making cities safer, smarter, and more connected. And we're doing it at a global scale-energizing local economies and bringing opportunity to millions of people around the world.

Uber's positive impact is tangible in the communities we operate in, and that drives us to keep moving forward.

Uber started out to solve a simple problem: the need to get a ride across town. Six years and two billion trips later, we've stumbled upon something a bit bigger: a new way to help tackle congestion —one of the most serious challenges cities face today.

Using technology, Uber makes it quick and easy for people heading in the same direction at the same time to share their journey. It's carpooling at the press of a button. And by getting more people into fewer cars, we've proven you can reduce congestion and pollution overtime. uberPOOL in Los Angeles, for example, cut the number of kilometers driven across town by 12.7 million and carbon dioxide pollution by 1,400 metric tons in just eight months.

Longer term, we're optimistic that smartphone apps like Uber can also offer a real alternative to individual car ownership. After all, if you can press a button and get an affordable ride across town in minutes 24-hours a day, why bother to own a car? There is an alternative to a world that looks like a parking lot and moves like a traffic jam. Join Uber to help make that future possible.

What You'll Do:

  • Perform research and develop alternative structures to address unique tax concerns
  • Assist in maintaining communication with regional tax professionals (e.g., APAC or LatAm) to manage US tax and transfer pricing issues associated with regional activity, and ensure that regional tax projects are consistent with global tax strategy

  • Work with third party consultants to prepare global transfer pricing studies and develop a good understanding of the value chain in the overall business
  • Review proposed changes to the business for direct and indirect tax implications, and identify areas where additional tax input is required
  • Research tax planning ideas that support the business and global tax strategy
  • Effectively communicate tax concepts, tax planning structures, and tax risks to the business
  • Responsible for documenting tax positions globally

What We're Looking For:

  • 2-3 years of international tax and/or transfer pricing experience in law firm, Big 4, and/ or industry
