Is Uber About To Launch In New Zealand?

This year saw private car service Uber bring its own brand of transport down to Australia, and now we’re all wondering what’s next for the company? Will it open in more cities than Melbourne and Sydney, or will it hop the trench and set up shop in New Zealand first? New job postings point towards the latter, actually.

Job postings spotted earlier today by The Verge show that Uber is looking for people in South Korea and even closer to home in New Zealand.

Here’s the role:

Community Manager — Auckland

Uber is spreading throughout Australasia, and it’s your job to spread the word! We use many tools to gain attention: host parties, press meet ups, event partnerships, social media, etc. Bring your creativity!

Spread the UberLOVE by creating exciting blog & social web content.
