  • Experience implementing complex projects with multiple dependencies.
  • Experience coding with Go, Java, C++ or Python.
  • Experience in at least one of scalable storage and databases.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience analyzing, monitoring, and troubleshooting large-scale, high-traffic distributed systems
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, including the ability to write detailed technical documents.

At Uber, we reimagine the way the world moves for the better. The idea was born on a snowy night in Paris in 2008, and ever since then, our DNA of reimagination and reinvention carries on. We've grown into a global platform moving people and things in ever-expanding ways, taking on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters make movement happen at the push of a button for everyone, everywhere.

We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let's move the world forward, together.
