About the Team

We are a team of software engineers with security mindsets. We lead the principled vulnerability discovery initiative at Uber. We ensure that all code at Uber adheres to company-wide security standards and is devoid of known security vulnerabilities.

To that end, we design, develop and deploy automation to detect, track and remediate vulnerabilities in over 5,000 web services, endpoints, mobile devices, prod & CORP infrastructure.

In addition, we crowdsource security intelligence via our Bug Bounty program, red team exercises, as well as manual and automated security audits.

Finally, we use research-quality CFG and DFG principles to codify the latest security breakthroughs into custom queries, which we then deploy across our fleet of advanced security scanners. As a result, we expand the return on investment of our manual labor.

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 10,000 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.
