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.

We are dedicated to creating an extensive mapping and logistics infrastructure that can scale to our amazing growth and address the international challenges we face. We are working on services that cover areas like navigation, mobile map display, and location. You will have an immediate role in affecting traffic in major cities.


Uber's mapping effort is central to Uber's success. As part of this, we are creating our own map display stack from the ground up. We will present beautiful, useable maps to our users - both riders and drivers - in order to help them navigate the complexities of driving on Uber, communicate pickup and dropoff locations, track on-trip progress, and much more!


We are looking for an engineer who places user experience first and foremost, is excited to make an impact, and has the skills to do so. If you join, you will be working on a superb platform with a world class team that values growth and collaboration.
