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 500 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 women and men 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.
The mobile developer platform team is building a reliable, scalable continuous delivery platform to support the growth of Uber’s mobile engineering team. This platform will process hundreds of thousands of jobs a day as we ship new versions of our app regularly to our end users. To support this scale, the mobile developer platform team is looking for experienced backend engineers who can help us in building this new platform and the set of services that will power it.
To succeed in this position, you will have experience building highly available and concurrent backend services and a solid understanding of what it means to keep these service reliable. You are familiar with containers and the ecosystem of technologies. You are knowledgeable in today’s technologies and use strong engineering practices with relation to building RPC based web services. Continuous integration systems like Jenkins and their concepts are familiar to you and you have an interest in developing tooling that engineers will use everyday.
