Production Engineer - Infrastructure

Uber Overview

We’re looking for an experienced system administrator to join us in supporting our production infrastructure and engineering teams. You’ll extend tools past their natural breaking points to help scale our product, and you’ll automate recurring tasks to help us scale our team – both of which are growing faster than we can keep up with. We are a healthy mix of software engineering and operational skills, and this is a particularly good opportunity for a sysadmin who is looking to expand their development skills while making an immediate contribution from their prior experience.

Here are the kinds of skills we’re looking for:

  • Linux system administration (Ubuntu, Aptitude).
  • Configuration management (Puppet).
  • Databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL) and caching (Redis).
  • Monitoring tools (Nagios, Graphite).
  • Networking (TCP/IP).
  • Bonus if you’re managed a mobile build farm for Android or iOS.
  • Scripting (Python or alternative and willingness to learn Python).

What you’ll be doing:

  • Support everything above the bare metal – development and production environments.
  • Triage, debug and resolve production regressions and outages.
  • Automate and innovate on our existing processes.
  • Help deliver slick modern transportation to the masses!


  • 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.

We’re bringing Uber to every major city in the world. We need brains and passion to make it happen and to make it happen in style.
