About the Role

The Merchant Order Experience team is responsible for getting orders to our merchants on the Uber Eats platform, and making sure they can fulfill them successfully. We maintain the applications used in-store to process orders, as well as a suite of public APIs which can be used by merchant partners to integrate Uber Eats orders into their workflow. We're responsible for distributing millions of orders every day for hundreds of thousands of merchants, helping them all to grow their business online. We're also responsible for merchant reliability - letting stores know when we're having trouble sending them orders or other issues arise.

  • Build new integrations with merchants that impact the critical order flow, across the domains of pricing, catalog inventory and more
  • Design tools to monitor merchant performance and automatically take actions using a rules-based decision engine
  • Collaborate with product, design and other engineering teams to unlock new capabilities for our merchants

Basic Qualifications

  • 5+ years professional experience in software engineering at scale
  • Solid understanding of software design principles, for systems and APIs alike
  • Proven ability to design, build and maintain complex systems that address real business needs

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience designing expressive and logical public APIs, to be consumed by third-party developers
  • Understanding of principles of distributed system design, and applying it to create reliable and performant systems
  • Familiarity with the Go programming language is a plus, but we can help you learn it
