Software Engineer - Monitoring and Alerting

Engineering in New York City, NY

About Uber


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 autonomous trucking and self-driving cars, we’re in for the long haul. We’re reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.

About the Role


The Observability Applications team is looking for a software engineer who will work primarily on the backend of several projects. Our team is responsible for building the tools that all of Uber’s 3,000 engineers use to monitor their production systems. Our systems check millions of data points every minute to help engineers make sure riders, drivers, eaters and couriers are able to use the Uber platform, always.

What You’ll Do

  • In this role you’ll get to work on systems for production monitoring, dashboarding, and anomaly detection
  • We care about building great, useful tools for engineers
  • We care about each other’s well-being and taking on a reasonable amount of work
  • We move quickly, prototype, then take well-received ideas to supported production
  • We hold an empathy for the engineers who use our tools in high regard


What You’ll Need

  • As for our tech stack, we use just a little Python, but otherwise the backend is exclusively Go.
  • You don’t need to be an expert or even familiar - the team will help you get you up to speed on Go if needed.


About the Team


We’re a medium sized team of engineers in New York City with a variety of experience. You’ll be able to learn from more experienced engineers, and help more junior engineers grow. We work on a handful of projects so there is the opportunity to learn new concepts and to keep your work fresh.
