About the Team
The Driver Screenings team is an integral part in making Uber the safest transportation option in the world by ensuring that all partners on our platform have undergone the rigorous screenings as required by governments and Uber internal policies. The team is responsible for building technology solutions to evaluate every partner for every trip for every product (UberX, Eats, Black, etc.) at global scale. This is one of the most visible and important teams for Uber in 2018 and is an essential part of helping make safety a competitive advantage for Uber.

Engineers are expected to learning quickly and continue to improve their craft to ensure that our systems can meet the needs of our business.
Bias for bold action. Our growth requires embracing change with sureness and boldness. We expect our engineers to be proactive about addressing both operational and scalability challenges as we grow.
Skilled at architecture. The services we build are highly scalable, robust, and fault-tolerant.
Passion. Engineers at Uber know what it means to truly own their services. Quality, performance, and robustness are expected of all services. Engineers take ownership of the uptime of their services, and they are empowered with the tools to do what is needed to keep them running. Great monitoring, alerting, and test coverage are championed at Uber and we provide engineers with the tools to do so.
Obsessive collaboration. We work closely with business groups like Legal, Regulatory, and other engineering teams like onboarding platform, documents, supply, etc. We communicate to address new challenges, work through requirements, and improve our operational efficiency.
At Uber we don’t just accept difference—we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of our employees, our products and our community.
