About the team

The Infrastructure team is a platform engineering team. It develops tools and solutions for the rest of the Uber engineering team.

Uber Infrastructure, an engineering ecosystem consisting of hundreds of thousands of machines supported by an organization of hundreds of engineers, powers these connections and the software requests that fulfill them in real-time. With multiple products being leveraged by millions of drivers, riders, eaters, businesses, and vehicles, infrastructure is the manifestation of the very scale and clock speed of Uber. Since our infrastructure undergirds every single request that Uber handles, the scale of Uber Infrastructure's challenges match the size of Uber itself. Similarly, the pace of software development at Uber is a function of how effectively our infrastructure exposes the foundational tools and resources engineers use to build and power customer-facing features, from estimated time of arrival (ETA) prediction on Uber Eats to the seamless matching of carriers and shipments on Uber Freight.

With increase in product offerings , geographical reach and number of users , infra systems and platforms have a challenge of attending a greater height every day. Infra org at Uber leverages both on-premise and cloud partners for these kind exponential scale needs. By combining the strengths of both on-premise and cloud we will get flexibility of better geographical reach , more options to experiment through PAAS offerings and will be always better equipped to mitigate unforeseen situations.
