Software Engineer -Edge infrastructure






San Francisco, CA, US


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.

  • Strong programming skills in at least one common programming language (C/C++, Java, Go, python etc) with a desire to learn others
  • Bias towards action while caring about reliability, efficiency and quality. We work on some of the most critical systems at Uber, we want to empower developers to move fast by having stable infrastructure that gets out of their way

  • Experience with cloud edge providers (GCP, AWS, Akamai, or CloudFlare).
  • Our core language is Go. Proficiency is desired but not necessary. Experience in C/C++ is great.
