Backend, Engineering

A Bit About Us

We manage 1000s of microservices running all of Uber's business logic for handling trips, food orders, freight, and more. Our microservice and configuration platform spans across Uber's on-prem data centers as well as our zones in Amazon and GCP. The microservices we manage are dockerized and co-located on hosts by leveraging our in-house cluster scheduler. Our platform is written in Go with a strong focus on clean, readable code with unit and integration test coverage. All code changes are peer-reviewed.

We have great opportunities ahead to provide Uber's engineers with an even better cloud-like experience for managing their services and related configuration by building a truly globally distributed system that enables our product engineers to seamlessly scale their services without worrying about underlying infrastructure. We strive to automate all operations that are currently handled by on-call engineers with the end goal of having a fully self-healing system - without compromising on availability or reliability.

Our team consists of a healthy combination of both junior and senior engineers with a broad range of experiences across the industry. We value ideas over hierarchy, getting things done and having a measurable impact on the business. We work closely with our stakeholder teams in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Seattle, New York and Vilnius.
