Software Engineer II
About the Role
Engineers at Uber have a deep impact across a wide variety of business and technology decisions spanning multiple projects. They are passionate and pragmatic technologists who are able to design, implement and deliver scalable and resilient systems. They are approachable, collaborators and mentors to engineers. Our engineering culture is the same across all our engineering offices: in Hyderabad, this is no different from San Francisco or our other locations.
We are looking for someone with a passion for designing, building and scaling highly-available, mission-critical systems that support millions of users during their payment experience on a daily basis. Our systems ensure accurate and on-time payouts to our partners and seamless payment experience for our users along with providing a choice of payment methods (global and local).
We also provide necessary tooling for our internal business stakeholders. This is a unique opportunity for an experienced engineer who is collaborative, has a healthy sense of curiosity and acts with responsibility to join Uber, work with talented people across the board and help improve our next generation payments systems, scaling it to the next level. This is a very high impact role where you will interface with all major infrastructure & platform teams at Uber. Does this sound exciting to you? Are you a tested team player, strategic thinker and executor? We want to hear from you.**
