About the Role
The Programming Systems group at Uber is looking for Ph.D. student interns for the summer of 2020. We seek candidates with a strong background in compilers, program analysis, and / or programming languages.
You will work closely with members of the group on building or extending tools that improve Uber's software reliability, performance, and developer productivity. Most intern projects also involve externalizing the work via open source, blog posts, publications, or talks.
The Programming Systems group develops tools and techniques to improve performance, reliability, and developer productivity across a variety of programming languages, including Java (mobile and backend), Swift, Objective-C, and Go. The work includes static and dynamic analysis, compiler optimizations as well as performance evaluation and tooling work at the language runtime and OS system levels. We mostly work on open source projects - recent examples include the NullAway (https://github.com/uber/NullAway), RxThreadEffectChecker (https://github.com/uber-research/RxThreadEffectChecker), Piranha (https://github.com/uber/piranha), and Nanoscope (https://github.com/uber/nanoscope/wiki/Trace-Extensions). We are also active in the research community and aim to publish and participate in top conferences. Further details can be found in our website.
At Uber, we ignite opportunity by setting the world in motion. We take on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters get moving in more than 600 cities around the world.
We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let's move the world forward, together.
