Description

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 new modalities, self-driving cars and even urban air transportation, we’re in for the long haul. We’re reimagining how people and things move from one place to the next.
 
You’d be the second Android engineer on the mobile performance team.
 
This is a Mobile Platform team. Our work generally falls into two separate categories: One, we build tooling to gather and measure various performance data. This is both local, developer-facing tools, and well as production instrumentation. Two, we actually dive deep and look for performance optimizations. These can be small bugs that need to be cleaned out, or architecture-level changes with impact across the code base.
Right now we’re focusing on the tooling side, and especially on automatic anomaly detection and regression prevention. Once these are in place, we can devote more time on the optimization part and push the envelope to see how fast we can make our app run.

PERKS:

  • Employees are showered with Uber credits each month.
  • Ground floor opportunity with the team; shape the strategic direction of the company.
  • The rare opportunity to change the world such that everyone around you is using the product you built. We’re not just another social web app, we’re moving real people and assets and reinventing transportation and logistics globally.
  • Sharp, motivated co-workers in a fun office environment. 

BENEFITS (U.S.)

  • 401(k) plan, gym reimbursement, nine paid company holidays.
  • Full medical/dental/vision package to fit your needs.
  • Unlimited vacation policy; work hard and take time when you need it. 

We're bringing Uber to every major city in the world. We need brains and passion to make it happen and to make it happen in style.
