About the Role
About the Team
The Revenue Computation Platform team models Uber's financials using mathematical, statistical, and computational algorithms. The goal of our team is not only to spur revenue & other financial metrics to financial users but also to provide deep insight across Uber for their day-to-day financial activities and decision making.

The technical challenges come with the volumes we deal with and the real-time solutions we provide.
