About the Team

On the Rides Engineering team, we write code that ignites opportunities for millions of people every day. We're focused on making Uber's core ridesharing products faster, safer, and more reliable by building scalable software solutions for riders and drivers on our platform.

Micromobility is a growing line of business which aims to provide riders an alternate low cost and environment friendly transportation option while also decongesting cities. This team is focussed on building an integrated booking experience used by riders to rent e-bikes, e-scooters, e-mopeds etc. in the core rider app through a scalable platform for our micromobility partners around the world to easily integrate with Uber.

About the Role

As a software engineer in the Micromobility team, you will play a crucial role in building the highly performant, globally available, reliable and scalable platform using which 3rd party providers can integrate their business with Uber. You will have an opportunity to join this growing line of business in its very early phase.

At Uber, we take pride in offering the best quality service to our customers - you will collaborate closely with product managers and business operations teams to build for scale, yet focusing on providing intuitive and delightful customer experiences.

What you'll do

  • Closely collaborate with product, design and business teams to understand product ideas and business needs and help deliver these as a series of fast experiments.
  • Create software systems for integrating third party providers with Uber at scale.
  • Write and maintain microservice code in Java/Go to power the micromobility backend.
  • Build the balance between velocity (faster delivery) and engineering hygiene.
