Senior Software Engineer, Sofia

Backend, Engineering

About the Role

As a Software Engineer on Uber's Sofia Engineering team you will dig into the complex but rewarding world of money systems, real-time tax calculation, invoicing and reporting, all at substantial scale. Our work helps our partners be globally compliant and Uber be competitive in highly regulated and complex industries such as transportation, logistics, and food.

What You'll Do

  • Lead architectural decisions. Propose solutions that Uber will use for years to come.
  • Up-skill our Engineering Team. Mentor and inspire junior engineers and introduce process and technologies to help them succeed and grow.
  • Contribute at a global level. Although we are based in Sofia, we work on integration for the overall, global Uber platform. Our systems support the entirety of Uber's tax and compliance worldwide.
  • Handle scale & reliability. Our solutions support Uber's always-on marketplace. Maintaining this platform at scale requires constant investment in security, reliability and monitoring tooling.
  • Innovate. Growth brings new complexity and new challenges every day.

What You'll Need

  • Advanced architecture understanding both on a theoretical level (e.g. RDBMS vs. NoSQL) and on an applied level (e.g. Redis vs. Cassandra, Python vs. JavaScript)
  • Project leadership skills to lead a project impacting millions of users
  • Knowledge of software engineering standard methodologies that minimize tech debt
  • Intimate knowledge of the entire web stack and how each piece impacts performance and reliability
  • Advanced knowledge of at least one programming language, and of OOP patterns
  • Commitment to quality, performance, and efficiency
  • Experience in taking ownership
  • Design and business insight
  • Fluency in English and Bulgarian

About the Team

Our team is responsible for several key capabilities associated with a trip or a delivery: from real-time tax rate calculation, to issuing all related documents that are meaningful for our riders and partners (receipts, invoices, tax reports), to providing our partners with real-time and easy access to their tax data from within 3rd party partner applications like Intuit, Stride and HR Block. The platforms that we build need to be highly scalable (handling data from dozens of millions of trips per day), highly available (our riders and partners need access to their documents & data 24/7) and highly flexible (Uber is operating in 80+ countries around the world, each with its own compliance requirements)
