Head of Communications, Mexico

About Uber

Uber started out to solve a simple problem: the need to get a ride across town. Six years and one 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 headed 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 in just eight months in Los Angeles.

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.

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 communications 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 using social media, as well as working with the public policy team to develop campaigns that make the positive case for reform.

About this Role

We are looking for someone to work on our Communications team in Mexico City. This role will involve:
* Establishing Uber’s brand and profile with the media and third parties; and
* Working to tell our story—and the story of ridesharing—in creative, inspiring ways that resonate with journalists and on social media

What we're looking for:

  • 10+ years of experience with proven track record in communications, including leading a team or a proven leader in another walk of life, who intuitively gets this stuff and may be looking for a career change
  • Fluency in English, both oral and written
  • A self starter: Uber is a company of entrepreneurs and we want to work with people who enjoy building things from the bottom up. 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 to create new regulatory frameworks that encourage innovation and alternatives to individual car ownership. You’ll need the intellectual fire power to grasp complex policy issues as well as the ability to articulate clearly and simply how apps like Uber can help improve transportation for everyone—both orally and in writing.
  • A strong campaigner: Smartphone apps are disruptive, and the interests being disrupted are deeply entrenched. So you’ll need to put together proactive campaigns involving passengers, drivers and third parties that demonstrate there’s a better alternative to today’s outdated status quo.
  • 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 people who enjoy working with others to get stuff done—and who can deal with the ambiguity that sometimes comes from working cross-functionally.

    Poca remuneración, baja consideración de Uber a los chóferes

    Chófer

    Saltillo, COA


    Pros: El hecho de la facilidad de ser conductor, el poder laborar cuando uno quiera, que ser conductor no es un trabajo pesado, genera buenos contactos si se sabe interactuar con la persona, que Uber procura resolver rápidamente tus problemas y encontrar una respuesta a ellos que beneficie a todos y sus sistema de calificación que aunque le faltan unos detalles en general es bueno

    Contras: El exceso de choferes que Uber mete por ciudad, pues no considera la competencia ajena a Uber que ya se encuentra en la ciudades y encima de eso ingresa demasiados choferes Uber, no de debería de ser normal tener 9 o más choferes Uber trabajando en el mismo radio de radio de 100 metros cuando no hay tantos usuarios, además Uber no se adapta a los costos de la Gasolina, sus tarifas son muy bajas y el problema es que al cliente le parece elevado el precio pero por qué la comisión de Uber también es demasiado, es una burla que Uber se quede 250 pesos si yo hago mil y para hacer esos mil necesite 200 de gasolina o más y 10 horas de trabajo.

    Consejos para los directivos: Disminuir la comisión o bien aumentar las tarifas, disminuir la población de choferes en algunas ciudades, prestar más atención a los mismos pues he visto autos en pésimo estado trabajando en Uber y choferes poco capacitados.

    Esclavitud moderna, engañosa

    Conductor

    Guanajuato, GUA


    Pros: Trabajar a tiempo conveniente, ingreso extra (muy poco) conocer otras culturas, ciudades y estados de México, hacer buenas amistades, compartir experiencias

    Contras: 35% de comisiones disfrazadas , pésimo apoyo de soporte en línea siempre protegiendo los intereses de la empresa, desinterés por la salud y bienestar de los conductores esclavizandonos a trabajar más de 10 hrs diarias para que tengamos como sobrevivir, desinterés por nuestra seguridad

    Consejos para los directivos: Humanizar al personal de soporte, cuando nos reclutaron era solo el 20% de comisión, ahora es el 35% y entre gasolina carísima, gobierno cazandonos y la inseguridad ufff

    Recomendá la empresa: No
