In 2011, Justin went into Tech—working first for Orbitz, then joining a then-unknown Uber. Justin built and led Uber's policy and communications functions first in the Americas and then Globally, and opened markets for Uber in all 50 U.S. States and in 70 nations worldwide. In 2020, Justin ran Uber's California statewide ballot initiative campaign on worker classification, Prop-22, winning 59-41%. Prop-22 was the most expensive ballot measure in state history.

Justin resides in Arlington, VA with his wife and two children. Justin lives in a house divided with his Florida State Seminole alum-wife, and poetically their youngest child was born during the second quarter of the 2022 Florida-Florida State game. It remains unclear where his ultimate loyalties will lie, but the Gators are looking good.
