About the Team

The Developer Experience team is pushing the boundary of what’s possible to make engineers forget about infrastructure and focus on crafting incredible solutions for our customers. Developer Experience comprises several key areas: Developer Tools, Build Platform, Testing & Chaos Platform, Continuous Integration, and Continuous Delivery. If you enjoy enabling other engineering specialists to be productive, discussing anything from developer tools to kernels and you measure the success of your projects in “nines”, we would like to talk to you.

At Uber, we reimagine the way the world moves for the better. The idea was born on a snowy night in Paris in 2008, and ever since then, our DNA of reimagination and reinvention carries on. We’ve grown into a global platform moving people and things in ever-expanding ways, taking on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters make movement happen at the push of a button for everyone, everywhere.

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.
