Job description

We are responsible for the infrastructure software that makes Uber's data-centers around the world highly reliable and scalable. We've built the foundation of a highly cohesive, loosely coupled service-oriented architecture that is going to propel us into the next 100 growth levels - which will come pretty soon, considering that we're doubling in size every six months.
We are partitioning data processing pipelines across multiple hot datacenters and rethinking queueing systems that now handle hundreds of millions of jobs. Peak load is still a bit stressful for us, but we're hard at work developing the next generation platform that will scale with grace and can be operated with ease.
The core infrastructure team is building systems for consumption by all the other engineering teams at Uber. We're setting best practices and helping other teams architect better solutions, and we're not afraid to get into the nitty-gritty.

The company

Life at Uber

We’re building something people use everyday. From how you get home from work, to how you eat meals, or how you move huge shipments of absolutely anything, the work we contribute moves the world a few steps forward. And that’s one of the best parts about working here - knowing that the work you do helps shape the future.
And getting to that bright future means solving some of the most difficult problems of the present. It takes a lot of hard work, a lot of love, and support from colleagues all over the world. At Uber, we have brought together a world-class collective of problem solvers. And we all fundamentally understand that tough challenges help us personally grow the most. That’s why we wholeheartedly believe in learning by doing - and that there is no better classroom than real-world experience. Because if it helps you grow, then we all grow. Together.
Every day we’re making cities safer, smarter, and more connected. And we’re doing it at a global scale—celebrating the communities where we exist, energizing local economies and bringing opportunity to millions of people around the world. The impact is visible and measurable, and that drives us to keep moving forward.
