Self Driving Vehicle Security Engineer

Software, Advanced Technologies Group in San Francisco, CA

At the Advanced Technologies Group (ATG), we are building technologies that will transform the way the world moves. Our teams in Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Boulder, and Toronto are dedicated to mapping, software and hardware development, vehicle safety, and operations for self-driving technology. Our teams are passionate about developing a self-driving system that will one day move people and things around more safely, efficiently, and cost effectively.


At Uber, we believe technology has the power to make transportation more efficient, accessible, and safer than ever before. Self-driving technology has the potential to make these benefits an everyday reality for our customers, but it’s not going to happen overnight.  Building best-in-class self-driving technology will take time, and safety is our priority every step of the way. Operating inclusively and transparently, while displaying responsible behavior in a structured development are critical to safety. We at ATG seek candidates who will role model these values.


We ignite opportunity by setting the world in motion. We take on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters get moving in more than 600 cities around the world.


We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let’s move the world forward, together.

About the Role


The Vehicle Security Team is looking for candidates who are passionate about building security technology for the future of ground transportation, and to help define secure self-driving vehicle systems. You should be comfortable working within a fluid technology stack and being able to execute at the micro while affecting the macro-level.


We are predominately a software engineering team but we also partner with non-engineering teams to shape the security position and policies of ATG, resolutions or proposals to regulatory conflicts and using cybersecurity to assert safety controls.

What You’ll Do
As a member of the Vehicle Security team you’ll get to experience and work in all the domains we cover but we like to let people find their feet working in their area of expertise first. We have some team members who focus on the security of the data center services, and others who focus on the security within the vehicle - both software and hardware - but they work together on the designs, code and ownership. We do this to allow everyone to be able to engage in conversation and review of all the systems we interact with or work to secure - even if they aren’t developing on them yet.


Team members act as security consultants and developers while also performing security assessments, and reviewing and contributing to new vehicle hardware and software components.


What You’ll Need
  • Experience performing security assessments, familiar with security technologies, low-level vehicle subsystems, or embedded development.


About the Team


The Vehicle Security Team, known as AVSec, works to protect Uber’s self-driving intellectual property and data when on, and communicated between, our self-driving vehicles and cloud services. We create and shape the operating domains and trust mechanisms necessary for the vehicles safety policies to be realized.


We cover a broad spectrum of the self-driving technology environment, from the manufacturers' vehicle, into the self driving systems, over the air and into the services running in Uber’s datacenters.
