About the teams

Launched in 2014, Denmark is home to our Service Config & Deploy teams, as well as members of our Uber Eats engineering team.

The Platform teams build Uber's microservice platform managing the lifecycle and the deployment of config and code for all the microservices running in Uber's data centers.
Our mission is to build a microservice and configuration platform that enables product engineers to create, scaffold, deploy, scale, and setup their services and configuration reliably, safely and easily. This includes the management and deployment of Uber's Storage and Data systems.

Our Uber eats team is responsible for building the product catalog and inventory system that powers the Uber Eats experience and related verticals, such as groceries. This is one of the foundational components of the Eats architecture, as it interfaces with merchants, powers our local graph, and serves recommendations to our customers.

What you'll do:

• Contribute at a global level. Although we are based in Denmark, we work on a global platform that touches thousands of engineers across different regions while the Eats team build solutions for millions of merchants.
• Lead scale & reliability. Building this platform at scale requires constant investment in scalability and reliability.
• Innovate. Growth brings new complexity and new challenges every day.
• Learn from the best. The Denmark Engineering team is a mix of engineers from junior to Senior Staff and allows you to grow through unique mentorship.

We value ideas over hierarchy, getting things done and having a measurable impact on the business. We work closely with our stakeholder teams in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Seattle, New York and Amsterdam.
