Job Description

UATG is seeking a Technician Manager with the following attributes:

Management Responsibilities:

  • Organize and deliver task to all techs
  • Able to prioritize tasks handed down from other managers and engineers
  • Train Technicians, Keep and Hire Technicians as necessary needed
  • Shop maintenance and setup
  • Develop technician growth opportunity
  • Technical Responsibilities:
  • Able to wire with little or no electrical schematics
  • Build to complex mechanical drawings
  • Complex PCB build and solder
  • Able to do complex electrical mechanical troubleshooting
  • Power on and debug complex electrical systems

Bonus points for the following:

  • Experience in operating a manual lathe and milling machine
  • Welding capabilities (Tig and Mig)
  • Associates Degree in Electrical / Electronics or 10 years equivalent experience

Here are the kinds of skills we're looking for:

  • Fast learner. We’re looking for team members who flourish with 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 rapid pace of a rapidly evolving research, development, and testing environment.
  • Fearlessness. You think a working proof-of-concept is the best way to make a point. You strive on validating 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 core engineering fields, you understand how all the pieces fit together into integrated systems, and how they impact performance.
  • Passion. You feel ownership over everything you ship; you'd never call code or design "released" until you’re confident it’s correct. You pride yourself on efficient monitoring, strong documentation, and proper test coverage.
  • A teammate. 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 You understand requirements beyond the written word and 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.



  • Perks

    • 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, ten paid company holidays.
    • Full medical/dental/vision package to fit your needs.
    • Unlimited vacation policy; work hard and take time when you need it.
