Tax Technology Intern - Amsterdam
About the Internship
As Uber continues to grow, our tax team also needs to expand to meet new business challenges. We are looking to add two motivated Tax Technology Interns with a positive, can-do attitude to our Tax Technology Team, based in Amsterdam.
The Tax Technology Team focuses on tax operations & analytics, with the specific focus of using technology projects for global tax and reporting teams, interpreting the tax data from our systems and processes to enable informed business decisions. We are also responsible for monitoring the accuracy in our tax systems, striving for full tax automation, and driving the vision for improved and efficient tax compliance of not only Uber but also of our partners (Driver, Couriers, Restaurants, Carriers and Shippers).
Our team consists of a diverse group of individuals with backgrounds across consulting, tax, accounting, and analytics. We often have to employ unique approaches to tackle critical challenges.
If you are technically sharp, but have a thirst to learn more and frequently use phrases like "let's do it", "let's try that", and "we'll find an answer" then you will fit right in.
