Legal Assistant, Patents and IP

Uber Overview

At Uber, we pride ourselves on the amazing team we’ve built. Behind our unprecedented growth and game changing technology are the people that make Uber, Uber. Developing and delivering the technological backbone for a first class, on-demand transportation experience takes a critical eye for quality, and we want a legal assistant who has the same critical eye. This addition to our team must be organized, experienced, and willing to take on the responsibility to make things happen. The IP Legal Assistant will be based at Uber’s headquarters in San Francisco.
