About Uber

 

Uber is a technology company that is changing the way the world thinks about transportation. We are building technology people use everyday. Whether it's heading home from work, getting a meal delivered from a favorite restaurant, or a way to earn extra income, Uber is becoming part of the fabric of daily life.

 

We're making cities safer, smarter, and more connected. And we're doing it at a global scale-energizing local economies and bringing opportunity to millions of people around the world.

 

Uber's positive impact is tangible in the communities we operate in, and that drives us to keep moving forward.

Job Description

Uber's Core Infrastructure team is seeking experienced software engineers to help create the future of urban transportation. Sounds interesting? Read on.

 

We are responsible for the infrastructure software that makes Uber's data centers around the world extremely reliable and scalable. We've built the foundation of a highly cohesive, loosely coupled service-oriented architecture that is going to propel us into the next 100x growth levels - which will come pretty soon, considering that we're doubling in size every six months.

 

We are partitioning data processing pipelines across multiple hot data centers and rethinking queueing systems that now handle hundreds of millions of jobs. Peak load is still a bit challenging for us, but we're hard at work developing the next generation platform that will scale with grace and can be operated with ease.

 

The Core Infrastructure team is creating systems for consumption by all the other engineering teams at Uber. Our frontend developers build the customer facing part of these systems.

 

What you'll need

  • Experience. You've built side projects or professionally utilized the latest stacks and JavaScript libraries such as Node.js, React, Angular and Backbone. You can make magic with CSS. You are excited by the amazing pace that the web continues to evolve. You seek new methods and tools to make great websites faster and more beautiful.
  • Fast learners. We're looking for software engineers who thrive on learning new technologies and don't believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. You should be able to adapt easily to meet the needs of our massive growth and rapidly evolving business environment.
  • Versatility. In addition to having an intimate knowledge of the frontend layer, you can dip down into the stack when needed.
  • Deep architecture skills. You know how to create performant client-side experiences with code bases that scale for a large number of developers. You stay up-to-date with the latest trends.
  • Passion. You feel ownership over everything you ship. You'd never call code "released" until you're satisfied it's correct. You pride yourself on efficient monitoring, thorough documentation, and proper test coverage.
