Staff Software Engineer, Marketplace

Backend, Engineering
in Bangalore, India

About the Role

Engages with stakeholders across teams to lead the development and maintenance of backend services and solutions to support user-facing products, downstream services, or infrastructure tools and platforms used across Uber.

About the Team:

Marketplace services are the key building blocks of the Uber ecosystem that provides reliable and efficient transportation & logistics needs of our LOBs such as ridesharing, eats, groceries, pharma, bikes, trucks, and easy grocery to millions of customers.

  • The trip fulfillment platform, in particular, is the system of record for managing the state & behavior for all realtime trips at Uber like Drivers, riders, couriers etc. This system is the heart of realtime trips and a trip cannot be completed if any part of the fulfillment stack goes down.
  • The Fares Platform supports nearly 100B+ number of fares requests per month responsible for $80B+ in Gross Booking (GB) per year across Uber. Fares Platform plays a crucial role in providing fares estimations and calculations to Upstreams such as Fulfillment, Hippo and Downstreams such as Money, Tax and Receipts teams for post-trip activities. Fares Platform is enabling new fares solutions and unlocking new opportunities by scaling faster than ever. The goal is to serve our customers in a faster and scalable way with reliability as our top most priority.
  • Matching Platform is responsible for Rides Dispatching; from availability and requesting a product to when the trip starts. Matching decides when to match and who to match, while influencing Riders' choices, to drive marketplace efficiency. The mission of the team is to increase trip throughput, with low wait times, for every Rides product at Uber.
  • Pricing Engine computes one all-in rider and driver prices for product sessions that enables Uber to maximize business objectives (price leadership, GB, VC) while providing transparent information to both riders and drivers.

If the reliability of marketplace services fail, this has a direct impact to our end-users. Uber will not be able to provide a Magical User Experience with reliable (ETAs, EDTs, Completion rates) and defect free sessions (reduce defect rate).

The Mobility Infra & Reliability Tools team builds infrastructure and tools that help marketplace services prevent outages, deliver products defect-free, detect & mitigates outages.
