About the Team

The Data Sharing Platform team aims to build the next generation of intelligent data services that will have a profound impact on how we march towards the vision of Uber's data-driven real-time marketplace.

Our teams build platforms that enable data movement within Uber across various sources and sinks, allow data sharing outside of Uber with various city partners and regulators along with ingesting data from various external sources to support business analytical needs. We have open sourced one of these platforms - Marmaray.

About the Role/What You'll Do

We are hiring an Architect/Sr Software Engineer for the Data Sharing Platforms team at Uber. As the most senior member of the team, you would get to work on and define the vision for three different platforms.

Iris Platform: Uber operates in over 700+ cities across the globe with each city defining its own regulatory requirements. Our challenge is to build a platform that enables external data sharing that is extensible, secure, compliant, and easy-to-use.

Kirby Platform: We ingest data from 70+ external sources that power use-cases across financial reporting, communications platforms, safety, and customer acquisition. Our challenge is to build a platform that is scalable, resilient, and customer-centric.

Marmaray Platform: We disperse data to various online systems used to power recommendation engines, Machine Learning platforms, and personalization engines. Our challenge is to build a platform that is generic, scalable, and self-serve. More importantly, how do we combine these into a unified framework?

As part of the team, you'll see the tangible impact of the work you deliver, you'll get the opportunity to work with high performing colleagues, you'll drive the team's vision and its implementation.
