iOS Engineer (Rider Team)
Uber is a technology company that is changing the way the world thinks about transportation. We are building technology people use everyday. Whether it’s heading home from work, getting a meal delivered from a favorite restaurant, or a way to earn extra income, Uber is becoming part of the fabric of daily life.
We’re making cities safer, smarter, and more connected. And we’re doing it at a global scale-energizing local economies and bringing opportunity to millions of people around the world.
Uber’s positive impact is tangible in the communities we operate in, and that drives us to keep moving forward.
Uber is inventing the future of transportation, and the Rider team is at the heart of the product engineering effort. Our mission is to perfect the end-to-end experience for both riders and drivers across the globe. We enjoy the challenge of devising sophisticated new capabilities and then weaving them into experiences that feel authentic and simple.
Specifically, we organize our efforts into three mulit-functional teams centered on the Ride Experience, Rider Growth, and UberPOOL.
The Ride Experience team aims to guarantee every rider an effortless trip, from conception to completion. This means creating fluid, elegant user interfaces that adapt to local city needs; it means evolving our real time logistics system and presenting it to users in an easily comprehensible way; and it means analyzing data at scale to create predictive systems that increase the efficiency and simplicity of the overall experience.
The UberPOOL collaborates to materially reduce the cost of transportation by filling empty seats in cars. This means constantly pushing the boundaries of the rider and driver experience to make it possible to efficiently transport multiple riders heading the same way; experimenting with innovative new offerings like smart pickup areas, uberHOP, and uberCOMMUTE; simulating marketplace changes to understand their effects; and ultimately rewiring our realtime dispatching systems to accommodate a stream of new use cases that benefit riders, drivers, and their cities.
Rider Growth’s mission is to spread Uber to everyone rapidly and efficiently. Our small team of engineers are responsible for a wide product surface area centered on the following themes. Sign up and new user experience – we remove barriers to joining Uber and make the first experience for every rider easy and intuitive, from creating an account to taking a trip. Our job is to get new riders to that magical Uber experience as quickly as possible.
Because the best evangelists for Uber are its riders, we value virality. We sees opportunities to help riders give Uber to their social, family and work networks. We also create social experiences that make Uber better when more people join it. We keep users who’ve joined Uber engaged with the product. We do this with smart, targeted communications, incentive programs and engaging content.
