About the Role
This position is in the India Maps team. Maps plays a foundational role in Uber; many of the core Uber product functions are built on top of or leverage Maps functionality directly or indirectly.
India Maps team develops high-priority, critical pieces of functionality for the Maps organization, working on a variety of things from Routing observability, diagnostics, algorithmic map error detection, experiment simulation platform, basemap data platform to Uber Places platform, Legoland, etc.
The Routing stack in Uber is a set of technologies that produces the best route from point A to point B and estimates time (ETAs) for all Uber. This includes modeling traffic on roads from GPS locations, sophisticated routing algorithms with a variety of cost functions, turn-by-turn navigation experience, and machine-learned ETAs predictions. Our routing solutions powers many Uber products ranging from pickup ETAs, driver-rider matching (Uber Pool and others), fare estimation, EATs, Freight, Bicycles and more to come!
The basemap data platform work involves building big data pipelines and infrastructure for the core data needs of Uber Maps. These pipelines parse, process and transform a wide variety of map data layers coming from a myriad of vendors as well as create a unified map model to represent global map data in a consistent manner.
The Uber places team builds an Uber owned dataset of business information that powers the critical function of Search for destination or original for a trip by processing low quality data from a multitude of vendors, and improving its quality and adding rich metadata using a combination of algorithms and human power.
The range of work comprises from building scalable big data (Hadoop, Spark, etc) processing to building data analytics/mining features to creating scalable services that move millions of people around the world as well as creating tools that allow in-house users to visualize and improve our products.
