Senior Software Engineer II - Order Platform

Backend, Engineering
in Sao Paulo, Brazil

About the Role

Uber's Commerce Engineering group is responsible for maintaining and enhancing the infrastructure for orders and payments that enables all lines of businesses across Uber to conduct business. All commerce in and out of Uber flows through these mission-critical systems. In 2019 this meant processing over 6.9 billion trips with $65 billion in gross bookings! With strict 4 9's availability requirements, this is one of our largest scalable systems and the complex day-to-day interactions require careful coordination from engineers that have a deep sense of quality, security, and ingenuity.

The Order Platform team is responsible for the lifecycle of all orders (ridesharing trips, freight loads, eats orders, etc.) from beginning to end. As a critical central platform, we straddle the line between infrastructure and product in such a way that we tackle deep technical challenges, at scale, in problem domains that are specific to Uber's business.

As a backend engineer on the Order Platform, you'll be writing reliable and maintainable code that teams across the company rely on while collaborating extensively with those teams to anticipate the platform features required to enable them to launch new and innovative products.
