Backend Engineer - Uber Freight

Freight, Engineering
in Boulder, Colorado

About the Role

As a Backend Engineer in Uber Freight, you'll be working on code that's core to the business.

Freight Engineering is tasked with creating the algorithms, systems, applications that power our independent drivers, sales and operations teams, and shippers that need to transport freight across the country. For these different user segments, we create business portals, mobile applications, integrations with third-party systems, and self-learning models that adjust to market conditions in real-time. Most of our work is distributed via the Web and through mobile app stores, interfacing with Uber cores services and running on Uber's compute platform.

What You'll Do

Uber Freight is building out a new engineering team in Boulder which focuses on improving both the Carrier Experience and the Shipper Experience. To power both these areas requires robust backend data and services.

Carrier Experience is focused on applications and products for the Carriers and Drivers that haul with Uber Freight. The team must keep in-mind the demands of those roles, and how to make life easier during the trip, and reduce the administrative steps that accompany each load.

Shipper Experience is focused on the needs of our Shippers, both Enterprise and SMB. The team is focused on replacing antiquated industry technology with open APIs, intelligent analytics, self-service tooling, and reliable supply chain management.

What You'll Need

  • BS/MS/PhD in Computer Science or related field required
  • Demonstrated experience of shipping high-quality product features on schedule
  • Experience in working on large-scale distributed systems
  • Data-driven architecture and systems design
  • Familiarity with Go, Java, and/or Python

Bonus Points If:

  • Knowledge of the logistics and freight industry
  • Experience building customer relations management systems
