About Uber

Uber is changing the way the world moves. Here at Uber, our mission is to bring transportation for everyone, everywhere. We served 10 billion trips in 2018 and are currently operating in more than 700 cities, across 63 countries, enabling 15 million daily trips, and connecting over 90 million monthly active riders with 3.9 million active drivers. We are currently making significant investments into our systems to support the continued growth of Uber at a much larger scale, globally.

The Uber Amsterdam Engineering Culture

 

Our engineering culture is the same across all our engineering offices: in Amsterdam, this is no different from San Francisco or our other locations. Amsterdam is one of the largest mobile engineering offices outside of our Bay Area headquarters. We are a diverse group, with talented people from over 30 countries working together.

 

Engineers working at Uber are highly autonomous, involved in decisions impacting the business and systems. We have a high bar for engineering quality, which starts by a transparent planning process before we write code - any engineer can get involved here. We have dedicated teams building efficient developer tools and keep improving our Android monorepo. We are big on constructive code reviews, accompany business logic with automated tests and have robust deployment and beta testing processes in place. We balance code and architecture quality with good execution speed, supporting the continued growth of Uber.

 

Mobile architecture for many of the Uber apps is based on the cross-platform RIBs architecture which we have open sourced, several mobile engineers from the Amsterdam office contributing. We write Android code mostly in Java, starting to introduce Kotlin to some codebases. We use Motif for dependency injection, RxJava for asynchronous event based programming and tools like NullAway for advanced static analysis. We frequently share work and learnings on Android and mobile on our engineering blog and our regular Android internal engineering meetings.

 

Engineering managers at Uber are also hands-on with coding and architecture - you can bump into some our Amsterdam managers speaking at mobile conferences. Product managers here are also technical, many of them having been engineers in the past. Other people engineers interact with daily, in the office include data scientists, designers and UX researchers.

What You’ll Do

 

  • Write best in class code and contribute to a clean and continuously evolving mobile architecture, many of this based on RIBs.
  • Work with an energetic and fun group of mobile, backend, frontend engineers, as well as product managers, designers, data scientists, user researchers.
  • Influence other engineers, teams and product managers, impacting the full product lifecycle.
  • Collaborate with teams in different offices, such as the Mobile Platform, Data Science, Payments Risk and Finance.
  • Keep the bar high on sustainable engineering by following best practices, producing best in class of code, documentation, testing, and monitoring.

 

What You’ll Need

 

  • A passion for designing, implementing and shipping beautiful user experiences.
  • 4 or more years of experience with mobile development.
  • Hands-on knowledge of Android and strong knowledge of Java or Kotlin.
  • Experience building and shipping consumer-facing products.
  • A collaborative approach, being open to help team members.
  • Applied knowledge of software engineering and best practices such as testing, documentation and code reviews.
  • Good written and verbal communication skills, including the ability to write engineering documents.

 

Bonus Points If You Have

  • Hands-on knowledge of RxJava, understanding how it works under the hood and best practices around it.
  • Experience in iOS development or interest in learning iOS - with RIBs, the architecture is strikingly similar to Android.
  • Experience or interest in backend development - both at the API level, as well as with services. Our mobile and backend engineers work closely together and we encourage people contributing in multiple domains.
