About the Role

About Uber

Uber is a technology company that is changing the way the world thinks about transportation. We are building technology people use everyday. Whether it's heading home from work, getting a meal delivered from a favorite restaurant, or a way to earn extra income, Uber is becoming part of the fabric of daily life.

We're making cities safer, smarter, and more connected. And we're doing it at a global scale-energizing local economies and bringing opportunity to millions of people around the world. We ignite opportunity by setting the world in motion!

Uber's positive impact is tangible in the communities we operate in, and that drives us to keep moving

forward.

About the role

We are looking for skilled & motivated engineers to help build core components of the Knowledge and Decision Platform (KDP) at Uber that powers areas like Risk, Safety and more. The technology you build will allow us to create a turn-key platform that will fuel growth at Uber via many applications as we move real people and things, in 450+ cities across the world. In this role, you will be building distributed infrastructure and services serving ML based decisions at Uber scale for critical business functions where high availability and reliability are not metrics but core requirements. You will also get to work on systems that detect and mine anomalies in petabytes of data flowing through our systems and surfacing insights and actions that form a strong feedback loop to improve ML models and highly sophisticated decision predicates. This is a very high impact role where you will interface with all major infrastructure teams at Uber.

Does this sound exciting to you? Are you a tested team player, strategic thinker and executor? We want to hear from you.
