Description

At ATG, we are high-reaching, engaged and excited about transforming the way the world moves. With locations in Pittsburgh, San Francisco, and Toronto, the Advanced Technologies Group is comprised of Uber’s self-driving engineering team dedicated to self-driving technologies, mapping, and vehicle safety. Our teams are passionate about developing long-term technologies that advance Uber’s mission of bringing safe, reliable transportation to everyone, everywhere.
Our work doesn’t end with transporting people. We are also developing self-driving truck technology to move goods more safely and cost effectively around the world. We are working to make the process of moving people and goods safer and more efficient.
We are seeking Infrastructure Software Engineers with independent problem solving skills and a high level of technical curiosity. Our technical challenges are unique; you will need to be comfortable working in uncharted territory, and excited to build systems that can support cities of 100,000 and 10 million people alike. Do you enjoy field testing? Are you willing to put in lots of energy to help bring new technologies from prototype to production? If so, then keep reading.
Minimum qualifications:

Minimum 3 years industry experience
BS in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or related discipline
Strong general Linux experience
Strong coding skills in C, C++ or Python
Familiarity with open source software development tools and frameworks
Here are the kinds of skills we’re looking for:

Fast learner. We’re looking for team members who flourish on learning new technologies, who adapt easily, and who don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions.
Fearlessness. You think a working proof-of-concept is the best way to make a point. You strive on showing that speed and quality are not conflicting; that you can achieve both at the same time.
Versatility. In addition to having an intimate knowledge of the whole software stack, you understand how all the pieces fit together.
Passion. You feel ownership over everything you ship; you'd never call code "released" until you’re confident it’s correct. You pride yourself on efficient monitoring, strong documentation, and proper test coverage.
A team player. You believe that you can achieve more on a team — that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. You rely on others' candid feedback for continuous improvement.
Design and business acumen. You understand requirements beyond the written word and how your technical contributions will influence the viability of future products. Whether you’re working on a software library used by other developers, a sensor to be retrofitted on a test vehicle, or a printed circuit to be mass produced, the other members of the team can depend on the quality of your work to rapidly advance our goals.
Bonus points if you have:

Experience with building web-scale distributed systems, common open source components supporting such systems.
Experience with containerized software development and deployment systems, storage frameworks and scheduling systems.
Superior skills in triaging, isolating, documenting, and tracking issues systematically.
Ability to analyze test results and build, use and configure automated reporting systems.
Experience with ROS and/or ground robotics systems.
Excellent communication skills especially with diverse groups of team members including technicians, software and hardware engineers, as well as managers and executives.
Perks:
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.
Sharp, motivated co-workers in a fun office environment.

Benefits:

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