About Uber


We’re changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago we were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now we’re a part of the logistical fabric of more than 600 cities around the world. Whether it’s a ride, a sandwich, or a package, we use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.


For the people who drive with Uber, our app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, we help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer.


And that’s just what we’re doing today. We’re thinking about the future, too. With teams working on autonomous trucking and self-driving cars, we’re in for the long haul. We’re reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.



Job Description

The Uber Developer Platform team empowers developers to build moving experiences through APIs and SDKs. Our APIs bridge the gap between bits and atoms and allows partners to build on the power of an on-demand network into their businesses. 


As an Partner Engineer, you will work directly with companies ranging from Fortune 100 companies to leading VC-backed startups to enable on-demand delivery. The work involves sharing best practices, debugging issues, and writing code to enable successful integrations. 


In the role, you will have the flexibility to work on other aspects of the Uber Developer Platform, including the Rides API and SDKs, across a variety of business verticals. Meet the team!



  • Work closely with business development, product management, and software engineers to ensure the successful relationship between Uber and our high-value partners.
  • Use your software engineering experience to guide partners toward successful technical integrations
  • Pitch and share best practices for the APIs prior to implementation.
  • Prioritize and communicate partner needs to product and engineering teams.
  • Write partner-specific code to enable successful integrations



  • Savvy business acumen. You understand what it takes to maintain business relationships, especially those that will undergo multiple product lifecycles involving complex technical requirements. You will be able to quickly understand the requirements of the partner and distill it down to actionable API specs that all partners can benefit from.
  • You have deep knowledge of technical stacks so that you can quickly recommend full approaches for partners. You can spot exactly where they might go wrong and have back-pocket full of suggestions to correct the course.
  • An amazing teacher. Whether it’s by creating sample code, designing new APIs, or finding out exactly what that partner wants, you know exactly how to reach developers and get them up and running.
  • Fearlessness. You aren’t afraid to speak up or step on toes. You know APIs and you know them well. You are driven to elevate the collective discussion around you.
  • Passion. You live and breathe APIs. You love to see new integrations and nothing feels better than designing that perfect endpoint.
  • Focused. You can switch context on a dime and you know how to plan your day. As a Partner Engineer, you’ll be coding, maintaining relationships with partners, and designing APIs. You’ll wear different hats and juggle your responsibilities. You also just got excited hearing that you get to do all these jobs.
  • A jill/jack of all trades. You are an expert in REST APIs and you have a wide array of tools in your bag, be it Android, iOS, Python, Java, C#, Ruby, or PHP. You know exactly how to get the job done and you elevate the skills of those around you.
