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 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.

About the team

 

Full-Stack on Mobile Platform? You bet! We’re more than just building mobile libraries and architectures. We’re diving deeper and deeper into things like automated device testing, front ends to display all the high-dimensional data we collect, and various developer-facing dashboards. We're currently in the early stages of building services leveraging our mobile device lab to enable 100s of engineers to run tests against a mix of real-world devices. We have a ton of interesting classical distributed systems problems but with even worse commodity hardware.

 

We need your help with all of this. This is a greenfield opportunity: you’ll have a chance to design, architect, and build-out whole new products from scratch rather than support a narrow slice of an existing platform. Interested?

 

Current Tech Stack:

  • Our backend is mostly in Go, using Fx and YARPC.
  • Our frontend is an MVP React/Fusion.js app - totally open to Vue if that’s your thing.
  • Lots of distributed workflows via Cadence.
  • Freedom to use the newest Uber tech: DOSA v2, Catalyst, Glue etc.
