Job Summary

The Kenya Country Team is at the heart of our drive to make Uber both big and beloved by the people that matter in the cities we serve - both now and in the future. We are on the front line when it comes to shaping regulation, advocating for our vision for urban mobility, striking strategic partnerships and celebrating cities in ways only Uber can.


As the Country manager for Kenya you will play a critical role in developing and nurturing various channels in your cities for Uber that will grow our business, raise our profile and shift perceptions across fast growth cities. This role will be the interface between the business and our key stakeholders in our cities (i.e. supply networks, customers, corporates, etc.).

This is a particularly challenging and rewarding role: Kenya has some big opportunities and can be a challenging market at the best of times with established competition and complex market dynamics. You will need to deal with both businesses and business groups as well as helping with engaging local licensing and policy makers.


Responsibilities

  • Work cross functionally with regional teams to deliver the best possible experience for Uber riders and driver partners across our cities in Kenya.
  • Build the country strategy, with focus on growth, expansion and fierce P&L management
  • Guide regional ops and marketing investment decisions in Kenya to efficiently grow the business and meet ambitious targets.
  • Work with regional ops and marketing teams with guidance as the local subject matter expert and as project manager to ensure execution on the ground
  • Work with our policy team to maintain and grow strong working relationships with local and national government stakeholders and regulators
  • Work with regional and HQ product teams to deliver product outcomes for our riders and driver partners
  • Engage with local organisations and businesses to develop partnerships that benefit Uber driver partners and riders
