The Team

Building, deploying and running microservices at massive scale are our team's finest tasks. We build a platform that empowers engineers to seamlessly deploy their services to 1000s of hosts, distributed across our own data centers and cloud zones in AWS and GCP, while balancing capacity, debugging failures and managing networking at ease.
Our mission is to build a best-in-class cloud platform for Uber engineers to manage their microservices. Reliability and usability is essential when Uber engineers globally rely on our platform to run Uber, so we're looking to expand our team with a collaborative and pragmatic engineer, who knows the value of great user experience.

• By interacting with users and understanding relevant data, you scope the next big problem to solve
• Coach and develop your team members and help them grow
Engineers on our team have a direct impact on the way our system looks and feels. We favour a data-driven approach to product development, leveraging web analytics and metrics to inform our decisions. We also talk directly with our users to ensure their needs are met so they can stay productive and happy while running Uber's business.
