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 ATG is the R&D hub of Uber's engineering team dedicated to self-driving technologies, mapping, and vehicle safety. This team is responsible for developing long-term technologies that advance Uber's mission of bringing safe, reliable transportation to everyone, everywhere. We are enthusiastic, engaged and excited about transforming the way the world moves. Our work will make the process of moving real assets and real people safer and more efficient now, and in the decades to come.


We're searching for great Site Reliability Engineers to join our Core Infrastructure engineering team. We are responsible for building the software infrastructure and tools that underlies our datacenters and applications, powers the decisions of the machine learning software, and serves up all the key data pipelines and key data models. Our software is fundamental to our success and every engineer at the ATG depends on it. We need systems and data engineers who are looking at making a direct and immediate impact on a world-class engineering organization.


You will be part of a team of engineers with a healthy mix of systems and software engineering skills, executing on large-scale infrastructure projects in a productive environment, ensuring that software services that touch the physical world are always available and performant under exponential growth conditions.


What you'll do

  • Collaborate closely with all teams, spanning the range from machine learning teams, to datacenter teams, to sensor teams, to understand needs, distill requests, come up with plans, get buy-in, and write software in our Pittsburgh office.
  • Write software and tooling for processing peta-scale datasets.
  • Provide supporting infrastructure to other teams so we can write code affecting the real world.
  • Work together with other highly-skilled engineers who will challenge and push you to your best.


Who you are

  • A fast learner. We're looking for team members who thrive on applying their knowledge, learning new technologies and don't believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. You should be able to adapt easily to meet the pace of a rapidly evolving research, development, and testing environment.
  • You take action. You think a working proof-of-concept is the best way to make a point. You thrive on the belief that quality doesn't have to be compromised to achieve speed-you can have both at the same time.
  • Versatile. In addition to having an intimate knowledge of core engineering fields, you understand how all the pieces fit together into integrated systems, and how they impact performance.
  • Passionate. You feel ownership over everything you ship; you'd never call code or design "released" until you're sure it's correct. You pride yourself on efficient monitoring, excellent 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.
  • Someone with design and business acumen. You understand how your technical contributions will influence the viability of future products. Whether you're working on a software library used by other developers, a sensor to be retrofitted on a test vehicle, or a printed circuit to be mass produced, the other members of the team can depend on the quality of your work to rapidly advance our goals.


What you'll need

  • BS in Computer Science or a related field. A MS or equivalent is preferred.
  • Programming skills in at least one of Python, C, C++, or Java.
  • At least 2 years or equivalent experience, at least 5 for senior engineers.
  • A thorough background in Linux software development.
  • Working experience with web-scale deployment tooling (Chef, Puppet, Ansible, etc).
  • Knowledge of containerization and web services frameworks.
  • Excellent skills in process, documentation, and change management.
  • Excellent interpersonal and customer-facing skills.



  • Employees are given Uber credits every month.
  • The rare opportunity to change the way the world moves. We're not just another social web app, we're moving real people and assets and reinventing transportation and logistics globally.
  • Smart, engaged co-workers.



  • 401(k) plan, gym reimbursement, nine paid company holidays.
  • Full medical/dental/vision package to fit your needs.
  • Unlimited vacation policy; take time when you need it.
