Engineering Manager, Self-Driving, San Francisco at Uber
San Francisco, CA, US

At Uber, we ignite opportunity by setting the world in motion. We take on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters get moving in more than 600 cities around the world.


We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let’s move the world forward, together.

About the Role


Uber ATG is seeking an Engineering Manager to join our team who primarily has impact through organizing the work of others. Working at the intersection of technology and people, you will balance long-term direction, health of the team, and individual careers of team members to ensure success in all these dimensions.


What You’ll Do
  • Access Uber's planet-scale data store while gaining subject matter expertise in various parts of the autonomy stack
  • Learn from world-renowned practitioners of robotics, mapping, perception, logistics, machine learning, motion planning, mobile communications, and other fields
  • See your work deployed fast and often into the real world and stretch yourself as you switch from one tough problem to another
  • Work with an outstanding engineering team and the support of an established data infrastructure
  • Benefit from working at a dynamic startup inside an established, well-capitalized company
  • Get in at the beginning as we grow the data science team
What You’ll Need
  • People management experience: You have the management playbook to nurture careers, manage under and over-performers, influence cross-functional teams, and recruit and build teams
  • Skills as a full-stack data scientist: Equally proficient in software development, statistics, machine learning, big data, and visualization research and product experience 
  • Fast learner: We're looking for an Engineering Manager who thrives on learning new technologies and doesn't believe in one-size-fits-all solutions -- you should be able to adapt easily to meet the needs of our massive growth and rapidly evolving business environment
  • Action: You think a working proof-of-concept is the best way to make a point, and you thrive on the belief that quality doesn't have to be compromised to achieve speed - you can have 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 "released" until you're sure it's correct; you pride yourself on efficient monitoring, excellent documentation, and proper test coverage
  • Team player mentality: You believe that you can achieve more on a team - that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts
  • Design and business acumen: Whether you're working on an API used by other developers, an internal tool consumed by our operation teams, or a feature used by millions of customers, your attention to details leads to a delightful user experience
About the Team

At the Advanced Technologies Group (ATG), we are building technologies that will transform the way the world moves. Our teams in Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Toronto, and Boulder are dedicated to mapping, software and hardware development, vehicle safety, and operations for self-driving technology. Our teams are passionate about developing a self-driving system that will one day move people and things around more safely, efficiently, and cost effectively.


At Uber, we believe technology has the power to make transportation more efficient, accessible, and safer than ever before. Self-driving technology has the potential to make these benefits an everyday reality for our customers, but it’s not going to happen overnight.  Building best-in-class self-driving technology will take time, and safety is our priority every step of the way. Operating inclusively and transparently, while displaying responsible behavior in a structured development are critical to safety. We at ATG seek candidates who will role model these values.

Engineering Managers are responsible for leading teams that build software on and off the Autonomous Vehicle. We have opportunities in both Pittsburgh and San Francisco.
