Public Policy Manager, East Coast

Revel
Brooklyn, NY
Our Mission
Move people.
Our Values
We are independent. Creative. Gutsy. We aren’t afraid to dream big. We are accountable. To our customers. To our cities. To each other. We are humble. Human. Lighthearted. We take our work seriously, but not ourselves.
Mobility is the lifeblood of urban environments and cities need affordable, emissions-free transportation options that are free of delays. We believe that shared electric mopeds will become an integral part of transit networks, filling gaps not served by bike share, car share, scooter share, or public transit.
We are looking for someone to join on our Business Development team as a regional policy lead who will report to our Director of Business Development. This role will involve advancing Revel’s Government Affairs & Policy efforts on the East Coast, establishing and building Revel’s relationships with policy makers–including governments, communities, academics and other stakeholders; and working to ensure that the regulatory framework supports the Revel’s growth.

    • You have experience navigating city and state regulatory structures.
    • You want to get in at the ground floor of a startup and are capable of taking on responsibilities outside of your core role
    • You take your work seriously but not yourself

    • Travel required

About the Role

    • Create, manage and lead a regional public policy effort, developing strategies for unlocking markets, keeping markets open, and building Revel’s relationship within them
    • Directly engage policymakers and their staffs to educate them about Revel’s business model and vision
    • Establish Revel’s brand and profile with governments, communities, academics, and other stakeholders
