  • Advise country business teams on local tax matters, including the local tax impact of new products, all changes that could affect Uber, and work on tax controversy.
  • Create appropriate deliverables for use within the tax department and in the broader company and document all tax input provided.
  • Support other special projects by researching and analyzing the tax issues.

  • Very strong analytical skills and ability to solve complex problems.
  • Comfortable handling big data & performing complex analysis.
  • Willingness to deal with a very steep learning curve and open to challenging projects outside your usual areas of experience or comfort zone.
  • Grittiness, you never hesitate to roll up your sleeves and tackle something hands-on, you persevere when others fall away.
  • Must be able to work in a fast-paced, dynamic environment with aggressive timeline.
  • Collected and calm under pressure.
  • A team player.

What you'll need
