Engineering Manager II: Stateless Platform

Manager, Engineering
in Aarhus, Denmark

About the Role

The Stateless Platform team builds Uber’s infrastructure to manage, deploy and run all stateless services for all of Uber worldwide. Our mission is to run all Uber's services at scale, with high availability, low cost, and high level of automation. The stateless services platform supports safe incremental code deployment, continuous deployment, automatic rollbacks, and autoscaling of services.

About the team

We handle roughly 4500 stateless services, and millions of containers, and deploy more than 1000 changes daily to production across multiple geographical regions with availability zones in both Uber’s own data centers, AWS, and GCP.

Services are written in Go with a strong focus on clean, readable code with unit and integration test coverage. All code changes are peer-reviewed.

We have great opportunities ahead including impactful efficiency projects, building out our service platform to support other workload types, and building an integrated solution for developers to run their workloads efficiently and easily.

We strive to provide guardrails and opinionated solutions to Uber's developers to allow them to focus on writing code instead of worrying about infrastructure.

Our team consists of a balanced combination of both junior and senior engineers with a broad range of experiences across the industry. We value ideas over hierarchy, getting things done, and having a measurable impact on the business. We work closely with our partner teams in San Francisco, Sunnyvale, Seattle, New York, and Bangalore.
