Uber Overview

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 has become an integral part of people's lives and it is critical that the systems that fuel the platform are always available to everybody in the world. Uber continues to expand into new cities and its growth and popularity present interesting opportunities for balancing the change in scale with the pace of innovation. We are looking for engineers that are able to apply the concepts and discipline of robust distributed systems to resolve operational challenges, while enhancing developer productivity and maintaining operational simplicity.

 

You will be part of a team of engineers with a healthy mix of systems and software engineering skills, executing in an always evolving work environment. This involves ensuring that software products that touch the physical world are always available and performant under exponential growth conditions.

 

What you'll do

  • Partner with fellow engineers to architect and build mission critical distributed systems that can stand the test of scale and availability, while limiting operational overhead.
  • Drive efficiencies in systems and processes: capacity planning, configuration management, performance tuning, monitoring and root cause analysis.
  • Participate in an on call rotation and be available for escalations.

 

What you'll need

  • A love for automation, reliability, and a deep feeling of ownership.

  • BS or MS in Computer Science or a related technical discipline, or equivalent experience.

  • Strong architecture and design skills for large scale distributed systems.

  • Experience in Go or Python is desired but other languages are fine as long as you have the desire to learn.

  • Strong system knowledge with Linux OS.

  • Experience with configuration management and monitoring systems is a plus.

 

We're bringing Uber to every major city in the world. We need your skills and passion to help make it happen!
