We’re changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago we were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now we’re a part of the logistical fabric of more than 600 cities around the world. Whether it’s a ride, a sandwich, or a package, we use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.
For the people who drive with Uber, our app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, we help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer.
And that’s just what we’re doing today. We’re thinking about the future, too. With teams working on new modalities, self-driving cars and even urban air transportation, we’re in for the long haul. We’re reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.
Uber's Core Infrastructure team is seeking experienced software engineers to help create the future of urban transportation. Sounds interesting? Read on.
We are responsible for the infrastructure software that makes Uber's data centers around the world extremely reliable and scalable. We've built the foundation of a highly cohesive, loosely coupled service-oriented architecture that is going to propel us into the next 100x growth levels - which will come pretty soon, considering that we're doubling in size every six months.
We are partitioning data processing pipelines across multiple hot data centers and rethinking queueing systems that now handle hundreds of millions of jobs. Peak load is still a bit challenging for us, but we're hard at work developing the next generation platform that will scale with grace and can be operated with ease.
The Core Infrastructure team is creating systems for consumption by all the other engineering teams at Uber. Our frontend developers build the customer facing part of these systems.
What you'll need
Fast learners. We're looking for software engineers who thrive on learning new technologies and don't believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. You should be able to adapt easily to meet the needs of our massive growth and rapidly evolving business environment.
Versatility. In addition to having an intimate knowledge of the frontend layer, you can dip down into the stack when needed.
Deep architecture skills. You know how to create performant client-side experiences with code bases that scale for a large number of developers. You stay up-to-date with the latest trends.
Passion. You feel ownership over everything you ship. You'd never call code "released" until you're satisfied it's correct. You pride yourself on efficient monitoring, thorough documentation, and proper test coverage.
