Senior Software Engineer II - Backend (Ads)

Backend, Engineering
in Sunnyvale, California

About the Role

Uber is changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago, we were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now we're a part of the logistical fabric of cities everywhere. Whether it's a ride, a sandwich, or a package, we use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.

We're looking for Senior backend engineers to join our team to help grow the UberEats ads business which enables eaters to discover new foods, and restaurants to grow their customer base. You'll work with teams behind apps used by millions globally every day and be a part of the technical foundations of a new product.

What You'll Do

Make improvements to ads platform for Uber to un-lock value for consumers, advertisers and Uber.

Basic Qualifications

  • Technical strength with 7+ years of experience developing and shipping code for production systems
  • Demonstrated examples of project leadership roles, delivering production-level features from inception, and promoting a high-quality culture amongst the team
  • Deep system design skills. You know how to build highly-scalable, robust, and fault-tolerant services that support our unique exponential growth requirements.
  • Demonstrated experience easily speaking to the operational aspects of monitoring, alerting, and structuring code for production-level debugging and optimization.
  • You have a strong command of a backend stack (eg. Golang, Java, Node.js, Python, etc)
  • Bias toward action. You believe that speed and quality aren't mutually exclusive. You've shown good judgment about shipping as fast as possible while ensuring your products and platforms are built in a sustainable, responsible way--and you're comfortable making mistakes, provided you learn from them.
  • Ability to learn quickly on the go. We're looking for software engineers who thrive while learning new technologies and don't believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. You should be able to easily adapt to meet the needs of our massive growth and rapidly-evolving business environment.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Industry experience working on distributed systems: developing reliable, high performance, highly scalable and low latency software
  • Demonstrable knowledge of the principles of fault-tolerance, reliability and durability.
