Experience applying Machine Learning to motion sensor or other time series data.
Ability to build and interact with very large data processing pipelines, distributed data stores, and distributed file systems.
Architecture chops: you should have opinions on constructing software systems and good knowledge of the principles of fault-tolerance, reliability, and durability.
Experience designing and deploying high performance production services with robust monitoring and logging practices.
Bonus points if you have built geospatial services and datasets before, such as maps data, routing algorithms, traffic patterns, etc.
Strong programming and algorithmic skills (we mainly use Java & Python)
Employees are given Uber credits every month.
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.
