Tax Manager Western and Southern Europe
We're changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago we were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now we're a part of the logistical fabric of more than 800 cities around the world. Whether it's a ride, a sandwich, or a package, we use technology to match supply and demand so that suppliers and consumers get what they want, when they want.
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.
For drivers, restaurants and couriers working with Uber, our apps and technology represent a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, we help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer. And that's just what we're doing today. We're thinking about the future, too. We're reimagining how things move from one place to the next.
This is a once-in-a-career opportunity to join a global tax team integral to a company engaged in cutting edge technology and focused on solving some of the biggest challenges in the world.
