About Uber

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 autonomous trucking and self-driving cars, we're in for the long haul. Uber's positive impact is tangible in the communities we operate in, and that drives us to keep moving forward.

About the Role

Uber is looking for an experienced Engineering Manager to lead a team within our Network Platform Infrastructure group. As a manager within Infrastructure you will have a significant impact on the evolution of Uber's backend teams and architecture. Our mission is to make transportation as reliable as running water, and we need people who are excited to build the dependable foundation that supports that vision.

Network Platform team's mission is to build the next generation of Uber's Mobile Networking, Datacenter Ingress, Service Discovery, Load Balancing, Edge termination and RPC solutions. At Uber we have a complex infrastructure spanning both data centers and cloud. Network Platform technology stack ensure seamless integration and communication of PRIME & ATG services hosted on cloud or data centers. We engineer long term solutions to these high-impact problem areas that empower every engineering team across the company.

We're establishing best practices and helping other teams architect better solutions, and we're not afraid to get into the nitty gritty low-level details. Our tools power everything from automatic datacenter failovers, layer-7 load balancing, and the APIs developers use to consume other Uber services. We have a measurable impact on ensuring Uber remains reliable, durable and scalable.
