About the Role

Uber in Australia & New Zealand (ANZ) is looking for a results-oriented and highly-motivated individual to take on the newly defined role of Associate Regulatory Strategy Manager, within the Uber ridesharing business.

  • Excellent stakeholder management, with proven ability to collaborate and influence both internal and external stakeholders

You can adapt your communication style as your audiences span across all parts of the business (from local leadership to technical / operational team members to external regulators)
  • Ability to balance being in the operational weeds with being able to communicate at a senior level externally; you need to the know the details of Uber’s compliance processes, products, and obligations and be able to synthesize this
  • Takes initiative and operates with a high level of ownership and autonomy ; biased toward action, great collaborator and master disambiguator/simplifier. You're constantly pushing toward clarity and delivery.
