Job Description

About the job

Uber Engineering is a culture of opportunities marked by fearlessness and hyperproductivity. We’re looking for engineers and senior engineers with natural product intuition who can work harder, faster, and smarter without sacrificing technical excellence. Our organizational challenges are unique, so you should be comfortable in uncharted territory and pumped to build systems that can support cities of 100,000 and 10 million people alike.

What you'll do

As a security backend engineer, you'll have a direct impact on the rider experience for both riders and drivers. We are high-reaching, engaged and excited about disrupting the transportation industry across the world. Not just another social web app: we are moving real assets and real people around their cities.

Uber’s security engineering team builds software solutions to address real world security concerns of our users and business. Our goal is to make our services secure while still improving the impeccable user experience and the scalability of our services. We enable our business and engineers to move fast by building effective and usable solutions for our security requirements. This includes developing great login experiences for users, scalable systems that detect anomaly & abuse immediately, systems for handling sensitive data & secrets, and common services like authentication, authorization and encryption.

What you'll need

  • Fast learner. We’re looking for software engineers who flourish by 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 advanced knowledge of at least one scripting language (e.g. Python or JavaScript) and knowledge of or eagerness to learn: MySQL, PostgreSQL, Redis, Kafka, and ElasticSearch.
  • Fearlessness. You think a working proof-of-concept is the best way to make a point. You strive on showing that speed and quality are not conflicting; that you can achieve both at the same time.
  • Versatility. In addition to having an intimate knowledge of the whole web stack, you understand how all the pieces fit together (front-end, database, network layer, etc.) and how they impact the performance of your application.
  • Experience in authentication, authorization & related security protocols (e.g. OpenID, OAuth, SAML, TLS, PKI etc)
  • Strong architecture chops. 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.
  • Knowledge of Application Security, Applied Cryptography, Protocols and Systems, Security Design and Code Review, Threat Modeling
  • Passion. You feel ownership over everything you ship; you'd never call code "released" until you’re confident it’s correct. You pride yourself on efficient monitoring, strong documentation, and proper test coverage.
  • A team player. You believe that you can achieve more on a team — that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. You rely on others' candid feedback for continuous improvement.
  • Design and business acumen. You understand requirements beyond the written word. Whether you’re working on an API used by other developers, an internal tool consumed by our operation teams, or a feature used by millions of riders, your attention to details leads to a delightful user experience.

Senior Software Engineers and above will also have

  • Mastery of Software Development in Python, C/C++, Go, Scala, Java
  • Excellent Training and Mentorship skills
