Uber Overview

About Uber


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.

You will get a chance to use your skills to solve some of the toughest problems Uber faces in the geo-spatial domain using state-of-the-art compute infrastructure and tools. And all this while rubbing shoulders with some of the best scientists and engineers looking to revolutionize transportation at Uber.

About the Team 


The AV Maps team is responsible for producing the detailed maps used by the autonomy stack in the self driving vehicles Uber is developing.  This map forms the core framework that the software on the vehicle uses to make real time decisions to navigate the world with a high degree of precision.  Without the map, the cars cannot drive autonomously.  The AV Maps Automation sub-team uses advanced analytics, automation, and machine learning techniques to make map building faster, and to make the highest quality maps for our self driving vehicles.
