Uber has continuously invested in building industry-leading tech and product teams, and we’re now further expanding both our ambition as well as our footprint. We’re recruiting 140 more engineers for our tech teams in Bangalore and Hyderabad to build cutting-edge products in areas such as rider and driver growth, delivery, marketplace, customer service, digital payments, risk and compliance, safety, and finance technology.
These expansion plans are in line with our vision to make mobility and delivery more accessible, and to become the backbone of transportation in thousands of cities across the globe.
We’re looking to hire engineers who are deeply technical and passionate about solving complex problems in the mobility and delivery space. We welcome the country’s top talent and will provide them a very enriching experience.
Our tech teams have been heavily invested in building mask-recognition capabilities to ensure that driver partners wear masks for their own safety as well as that of riders. To enable more effective social distancing measures, our engineers have been accelerating digital payments and also use advanced Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to seamlessly onboard restaurant menus onto Uber marketplace for enabling greater earning opportunities.
We recently hired Jayaram Valliyur as senior director to lead our global finance technology team, spread across multiple geographies. Prior to Uber, Jayaram worked for Amazon for 14 years, where he was responsible for bootstrapping and scaling its India development center. He also led teams in charge of transportation, new seller registration and identity verification.
