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

If you have great passion in creating front end solutions that drive massive business impact and if you are interested in developing both frontend and backend skills, you should come and join the People Tools team! The People Tools team is looking for a Senior Front End Software Engineer to come and create products and tools to bring the magic of Uber into the recruiting world. Joining this team will give you the unique opportunity to help propel Uber's record-setting growth, and help Uber generate millions of jobs worldwide.

 

Uber Engineering is a high-performance culture marked by boldness and appetite for productivity. We're looking for team players who can work harder, faster, and smarter, while taking technical excellence to a whole new level. You should be excited about developing a global transportation marketplace that spans a wide range of cities - varying from 100,000 to 10 million people in size - with unique regulatory, technical, and business requirements.

 

What you'll need

  • Ability to learn quickly on the go. 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.
  • You have knowledge of frontend stack (Javascript/HTML/CSS). Frameworks like React/Flux/Redux is a plus.
  • Deep system design skills. You know how to build highly scalable, robust, and fault-tolerant services that support our unique rate-of-growth requirements. You stay up-to-date with the latest architectural trends and have exceptional experience building systems for scale.
  • Bold bias towards action. You believe that speed and quality aren't mutually exclusive. You've shown good judgment about shipping as fast as possible while still making sure that products and platforms are built in a sustainable, responsible way - and you're comfortable making mistakes, provided you learn from them.
  • Passion and energy. Because you love what you do, you bring infectious enthusiasm to all your endeavors. You always perform at your absolute best and see new challenges as an opportunity to contribute, make an impact, and grow.
  • Unquenchable thirst for growth. "Comfortable" is not a word in your vocabulary. You're not just looking for the next interesting challenge, but instead looking to push yourself to see just how quickly you can grow when inserted into the middle of a hyper-growth environment.

 

We're bringing Uber to every major city in the world. We need your skills and passion to help make it happen!
