Senior Backend Software Engineer - UberEverything (New York City)**

Uber Overview

Please note: this position requires working 100% locally in New York City. Uber would be more than happy to relocate candidates provided they are interested and available to work in NYC.

UberEverything will collapse the time and distance between everyone and everything they want. Right now, our office is focusing on delivering food, both for UberEats and large companies, in cities around the world. As the team grows, we will be working to grow the next generation of Uber’s logistics platform. Define Uber’s future by building it with us.

While Uber might be an established company with a well know brand, our engineering efforts in New York are just getting started. Help shape the culture here by, working on a small team and being on the ground floor of something big.

Job Description

WE’RE LOOKING FOR:

  • Fast learners. We’re looking for software engineers who thrive on learning new technologies and don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. You should be able to adapt easily to meet the needs of our massive growth and rapidly evolving business environment.
  • Fearlessness. You think a working proof-of-concept is the best way to make a point. You strive on proving that speed and quality are not conflicting; that you can achieve both at the same time.
  • Versatility. In addition to having an intimate knowledge of the API and service layers, you understand how all the pieces fit together (frontend, database, network layer, etc.) and how they impact the performance of your application.
  • Strong architecture chops. You know how to build highly scalable, robust, and fault-tolerant services that support our unique rate-of-growth requirements. You stay up-to-date with the latest architectural trends.
  • Passion. You feel ownership over everything you ship. You’d never call code “released” until you’re confident it’s correct. You pride yourself on efficient monitoring, strong documentation, and proper test coverage.
  • A team player. You believe that you can achieve more on a team—that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. You rely on others’ candid feedback for continuous improvement.
  • Design and business acumen. You understand requirements beyond the written word. Whether you’re working on an API used by other developers, an internal tool consumed by our operation teams, or a feature used by millions of customers, your attention to details leads to a delightful user experience.
