About Uber

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.

What you'll need

  • Javascript skills. You believe javascript actually has lots of good parts, and you know them well.
  • Ability to learn on the go. You have expertise in areas you've worked in (hopefully React) and an eagerness to learn in areas you haven't.
  • Product sense. You create more than beautiful code. Engineers at Uber play a crucial role in choosing what we build and how we build it.
  • Versatility. You understand how all the pieces fit together (front-end, database, network layer, etc.) and how they impact the performance of your application.
  • Design skills. You care about your consumers: Uber's marketing team. You optimize for intuitive and responsive layouts, maximizing for utility and efficiency so they can continue to grow Uber faster than any other company.
  • Passion. You feel ownership over everything you ship; you'd never call code "released" until you're satisfied it's correct, monitored, documented, and tested.
  • Team player. You rely on others' candid feedback for continuous improvement.
