About the Company:

Wing is reshaping the future of delivery. We are an on-demand drone delivery service that can deliver food, medicine or other items within minutes. We’ve also developed an unmanned traffic management platform--a kind of air traffic control for unmanned aircraft--to safely route drones through the sky. Our service is faster, safer and produces far less pollution than traditional delivery. Originally created in 2012 within X, the Moonshot Factory, Wing is now an Alphabet company.

As a member of Wing’s Policy team, you will support Wing’s engagement with local policymakers and community members where we operate.  In this role you will develop and execute a community outreach strategy in close coordination with the policy, communications, marketing and operations teams.

  • Engage with State and Local government officials to keep them updated on Wing’s operations in the areas they represent. 
  • Track local and state policies related to drones
  • Assist with development and implementation of a cross-functional strategy to engage with the local communities where we operate
  • Work closely with the marketing and communications team to help shape Wing’s narrative at a state and local level and help coordinate/execute marketing and communications activities on the ground
  • Work to connect with the community by organizing visits with schools, STEM and Robotics clubs, aviation clubs and other community stakeholders and leaders

What you'll need: 

  • Proactive team player with a sense of humor and the ability to exercise good judgment in a rapidly changing environment
  • 5-7 years work experience in policy, public affairs, communications or community engagement
  • Excellent communications skills, both written and verbal
  • Experience with public speaking

Bonus:

  • Team player with a sense of humor and the ability to exercise good judgment in a rapidly changing environment

  • 1-3 years working in a Government position
  • Experience with community engagement around infrastructure projects

  • Experience in the technology or aviation sector
  • Experience working in a geographically dispersed team
