Uber Overview

As a member of Developer Relations, you are driven to help developers build amazing experiences on top of the Uber API platform and to design the future of our APIs. Our team is responsible for supporting each and every API developer, from their first question to their last milestone, whether that’s by getting hands-on with their code, answering questions at conferences, or working 1:1 over email.

We’re taking a new approach to Developer Relations by having you work directly with the engineers that create the APIs. No fences. Zero friction. All high-octane collaboration. Your partners will get the voice they deserve and need to succeed.

Our API is a fundamental part of Uber’s future; providing a system for developers to extend and enhance the Uber experience will improve our cities and the lives of our users in new ways. Developer Relations is entrusted with the task of unlocking the creativity of the developer community to realize that vision and our partners are going to help get us there.

You will be part of a highly-focused team that understands what it takes to get partners off the ground and launched. As a Developer Relations Partner Engineer, you will work closely with business development, product management, and API engineers to ensure the successful relationship between Uber and our high-value partners.

  • An amazing teacher. Whether it’s by creating sample code, designing new APIs, or finding out exactly what that partner wants, you know exactly how to reach developers and get them up and running.
  • Fearlessness. You aren’t afraid to speak up or step on toes. You know APIs and you know them well. You are driven to elevate the collective discussion around you.
  • Passion. You live and breathe APIs. You love to see new integrations and nothing feels better than designing that perfect endpoint.
  • Focused. You can switch context on a dime and you know how to plan your day. As a Developer Relations Partner Engineer, you’ll be coding, maintaining relationships with partners, and designing APIs. You’ll wear different hats and juggle your responsibilities. You also just got excited hearing that you get to do all these jobs.
  • A jill/jack of all trades. You are an expert in REST APIs and you have a wide array of tools in your bag, be it Android, iOS, Python, Java, C#, Ruby, or PHP. You know exactly what you need to get the job done and you elevate the skills of those around you.
