  • Identify and grow industry and coalition relationships 
  • Manage grassroots advocacy programs for Call To Action campaigns.
  • Help manage external policy consultants 
  • When appropriate, act as an external spokesperson for Grubhub
  • Approximately 20% travel throughout California

What You Bring to the Table

  • Bachelor’s degree in a related concentration; 
  • At least 8 years of experience serving in government, industry coalitions, and/or internal corporate government relations or policy roles
  • Direct policy experience, particularly with marketplace-based organizations 
  • Proven track record of leading initiatives, hitting goals, and succeeding in a team environment

  • Strong organizational skills and self-motivation, with the ability to work independently in a fast paced environment 
  • Positive energy on a daily basis is a must 
  • Must be willing to travel as needed.


Got these? Even better.

  • Being a foodie is a plus, too
