About the Role

We're looking for experienced, passionate frontend developers to work on our team. Specifically, we organize our efforts into four cross-functional teams focused on the app experience, the operations experience, tools for shippers and finally marketplace dynamics.

What You'll Do

Carrier Experience

The Carrier Experience team is a cross-functional team where Backend, Android and iOS engineers work together with design to build products we feel will provide better opportunities for truck drivers to maximize their revenue and flexibility.

We are a #driverobsessed team, and care deeply about our users and continually look for opportunities to improve their lives.

Operations Experience

The Operations Experience group aims to make every Uber Freight operations person a superhero. This means building fast, informative tools to speed up the workflows around creating, selling, and booking freight; it means becoming automation obsessed to maintain a lean, quality-obsessed organization even as we scale dramatically; it means building predictive models and alerting mechanisms so we can address loads at risk of operational failure before the problems ever happen.

Its mission is to ensure that Uber Freight has the data, processes, and tools to build and maintain a healthy marketplace.
