What Madan’s learned in 8 years as part of Uber engineering

Naturally, he went home and erased the files on his father’s computer, kickstarting his interest in computer science. Today, Madan is a Director of Marketplace Engineering leading teams that power the logistics behind orders, fares, and product selection.
