About the Role
The Marketplace Intelligence team, within the broader Uber Eats Marketplace group, optimizes dispatching algorithms and new dispatching paradigms with the goal of increasing efficiency and lowering ETAs & prices across all of for Uber's logistics and delivery marketplaces. In school, you may have learned about NP-hard problems like TSP (traveling salesman problem), VRP (vehicle routing problem), and the Knapsack problem - how would you like to solve even harder versions of these problems at scale, in realtime? And we're not just talking about designing algorithms - we are connecting all parties (end users, merchants, drivers) in the marketplaces to achieve efficiency equilibrium.
