Your Opportunity


Join Uber Production Engineering and help us redefine what it means to be a Production Engineer in 2019!  As an Uber Production Engineer, you will join a team of reliability engineers who partner with development teams throughout the organization with the ultimate goal of improving Uber products, features, and flow reliability.  


An Uber Production Engineer spends just as much of their time working on systems as they do writing code.  You’ll be tasked with all manner of work from building operational tooling, automating operational workflows, performing architecture and design reviews, investigating system failures and complex outages, improving our monitoring infrastructure, defining service level objectives and agreements for Uber products and flows, and much more. 

What You'll Do

  • We are experts in Uber infrastructure and best practices and we closely partner with rest of engineering teams to run world class distributed systems optimized for high throughput and low latency. 
  • We take ownership in creating elegant and reliable code.
  • Architecture skills. You will be constructing highly scalable software systems and contributing with your knowledge on the principles of fault-tolerance, reliability and efficiency.Experience designing and deploying high performance production services with extensive monitoring and logging practices.
  • Automation of deployment and configuration processes
  • Develop reliability tools and frameworks for use by all engineers
  • Share on-call with your engineering team and lead incident response and no-blame postmortem analysis and review
  • Drive efficiencies in systems and processes: capacity planning, configuration management, performance tuning, monitoring and root cause analysis.
  • We are on point for capacity planning and to help teams anticipate and prepare for growth.

What you'll need

  • Grit, drive and a deep feeling of ownership.
  • BS or MS in Computer Science or a related technical discipline. Equivalent practical experience is a reasonable substitute.
  • Good programming skills in one of C/C++, Java, Javascript, Python or Go, and an ability to pick up new ones.
  • Experience in the Linux environment and a good understanding of its fundamentals and internals: filesystems and modern memory management, threads and processes, the user/kernel-space divide, etc.
  • A good understanding of large-scale distributed systems in practice, including multi-tier architectures, application security, monitoring and storage systems.
  • Working knowledge of the TCP/IP stack, internet routing and load balancing.
