We are responsible for the infrastructure software that makes Uber's data-centers around the world highly reliable and scalable.

We are partitioning data processing pipelines across multiple hot data-centers and rethinking queueing systems that now handle hundreds of millions of jobs. Peak load is still a bit stressful for us, but we're hard at work developing the next generation platform that will scale with grace and can be operated with ease.
