iOS Engineer - Developer Platform

iOS, Engineering in Amsterdam, Netherlands

The Uber Amsterdam Engineering Culture

 

Uber has a consistent engineering culture and processes across all our engineering offices in the world. 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 with 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 iOS 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 iOS code mostly in Swift. We frequently share work and learnings on iOS and mobile on our engineering blog and our regular iOS internal engineering meetings.

 

At Uber, 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.
