Software Engineer

Software, Advanced Technologies Group
in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

We're changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago we were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now we're a part of the logistical fabric of more than 600 cities around the world. Whether it's a ride, a sandwich, or a package, we use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.

For the people who drive with Uber, our app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, we help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer.

And that's just what we're doing today. We're thinking about the future, too. With teams working on new modalities, self-driving cars and even urban air transportation, we're in for the long haul. We're reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.

What You'll Do

  • Working with self-driving vehicles - interacting and shaping robotic technology!
  • Developing state of the art robotics autonomy algorithms with perception, prediction, and motion planning systems that run on self-driving vehicles and in the data center
  • Write analysis, monitoring, and testing systems that understand the behavior of our vehicles, improve their safety, and guide future development efforts
  • Domain experience will range across sensor development, system optimizations, Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) development, embedded systems, route planning, vehicle behaviors to cyber security!
  • Develop data processing pipelines to feed adaptive and learned models
  • Developing innovative solutions for challenging problems with scalable, production quality software.
  • Collaborating with an amazing team of highly skilled group of people all tackling challenges of autonomous vehicles
  • Watching your input and efforts in practice with our fleet self-driving vehicles

What You'll Need

  • Coding skills: You are comfortable reading and developing production quality software with C++ and Python in a Linux (and/or Unix) environment
  • Analytics: You have an ability to analyze test results, build, use and configure automated reporting systems, such as Apache Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS); SQL

About Uber

At the Advanced Technologies Group (ATG), we are building technologies that will transform the way the world moves. Our teams in Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Boulder, and Toronto are dedicated to mapping, software and hardware development, vehicle safety, and operations for self-driving technology. Our teams are passionate about developing a self-driving system that will one day move people and things around more safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively.

At Uber, we believe technology has the power to make transportation more efficient, accessible, and safer than ever before. Self-driving technology has the potential to make these benefits an everyday reality for our customers, but it's not going to happen overnight. Building best-in-class self-driving technology will take time, and safety is our priority every step of the way. Operating inclusively and transparently, while displaying responsible behavior in a structured development are critical to safety. We at ATG seek candidates who will role model these values.
