We’re changing the way people think about transportation. Not that long ago we were just an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas. Now we’re a part of the logistical fabric of more than 600 cities around the world. Whether it’s a ride, a sandwich, or a package, we use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.
For the people who drive with Uber, our app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, we help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer.
And that’s just what we’re doing today. We’re thinking about the future, too. With teams working on autonomous trucking and self-driving cars, we’re in for the long haul. We’re reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.
About the Role
Jaeger is Uber’s open-source Distributed Tracing system, designed to provide real time performance monitoring and profiling for distributed architectures. Inspired by Google’s Dapper and OpenZipkin, Jaeger is a complete redesign based on the new OpenTracing standard. Since its first deployment in production about a year ago over 600 microservices have been integrated with Jaeger, with many hundreds more to come.
The project has recently been open sourced and the team is working with other major tech companies to make this the leading tracing project for large scale distributed tracing systems worldwide. Check out our Distributed Tracing blog post: https://eng.uber.com/distributed-tracing/
