Software Engineer - Automation Infrastructure

Backend, Engineering in Palo Alto, CA

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.

About the Team

Located in Palo Alto, Mobile Test Infrastructure team is part of the Uber Developer Platform org. We aim to provide scalable and efficient test infrastructure, tooling, and frameworks that enables mobile engineers at Uber to write and run tests easily. We own all aspects of Mobile test infra, including mobile frameworks; local and CI tooling for running tests in a distributed and deterministic manner; analysis tools to analyze large amounts of test results and artifacts to determine high signal test results, etc. Our tools allow safeguarding features and preventing regressions before diffs land.
