About the Team
Marketplace Platform’s mission is to provide a reliable, performant, and extensible fulfillment engine for Uber. The team provides the foundational core services and business models to enable transportation of people & things from origin to destination. This is modeled as a marketplace of demand (the side of the marketplace that requests trips, like riders, eats orders) and supply (the side that fulfills those requests, like drivers, bikes, public transit, external supply provider, etc).
We are currently building the next generation of the fulfillment engine to support Uber’s transition from a ridesharing platform to a true multi-modal transportation platform powering every mode of transport, such as cars, bikes, scooters, and other modes to come, in every city that we operate in. Some of the key technology challenges involve defining the end to end logistics flows across Uber’s marketplaces, building extensible building blocks that can be leveraged by all Uber product teams, building high-performance & reliable core services, and scaling the entire platform for efficiency.
