About the team
Uber's payments team is based in Amsterdam, at the heart of our international engineering efforts. We are a diverse group, with talented people from over 30 countries working together. As a member of our team, you will dig into the complex and rewarding world of money and build payment integration systems that seamlessly connect the world of finance.
The one constant at Uber is growth, and all of our systems are constantly evolving to meet the needs of our high growth environment. We are proactive about addressing both operational and scalability challenges as we grow. We champion great monitoring, alerting, and test coverage and invest in the right tools to help us do so. The services we build on Uber's payments team are highly scalable, robust, and fault-tolerant. We are conscious about the trade-offs we make in building highly scalable architectures. We balance code and architecture quality with good execution speed, supporting the continous growth of Uber.
Engineers on the payments team work closely with groups like Data Science, Machine Learning, Accounting, Finance and Mobile Engineering to address new challenges, co-produce requirements, and improve our operational efficiency. We also work closely with our Risk team to identify bad actors in our payment systems and mitigate financial risks. Supporting and collaborating with these and other groups within Uber is a key part of scaling our business.
Uber is changing the way the world moves. Here at Uber, our mission is to bring transportation for everyone, everywhere. We served 4 billion trips in 2017 and are currently operating in more than 600 cities, across 65 countries, enabling 15 million daily trips, and connecting over 75 million monthly active riders with 3 million active drivers. We are currently making significant investments into our systems to support the continued growth of Uber at a much larger scale, globally.
At Uber we don’t just accept difference—we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of our employees, our products and our community. Uber is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace.
