Backend Engineer, Data Solutions - UberEats

Backend, Engineering in New York, NY

At Uber, we ignite opportunity by setting the world in motion. We take on some of the world's most challenging tech problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters get moving in more than 600 cities around the world. The fuel behind all of our growth: our bold and innovative brand, our technology and, of course, the people. Maintaining a world-­class, global workforce that strives for continued growth and facing hard tech problems head on, is no small task. That's why we value ideas over hierarchy, we build globally while living locally, and we believe that being customer-obsessed everywhere starts with building diverse, inclusive, and driven teams.


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 curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us and let’s move the world forward, together.

We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We seek to build a workplace that is inclusive of everyone, and where people from every background can thrive.
