Software Engineer - Frontend (Aarhus, Denmark)

Uber Overview

Uber’s Core Infrastructure team is seeking experienced software engineers to help build the future of urban transportation. Sounds interesting? Read on.

We are responsible for the infrastructure software that makes Uber’s datacenters around the world extremely reliable and scalable. We’ve built the foundation of a highly cohesive, loosely coupled service-oriented architecture that is going to propel us into the next 100x growth levels – which will come pretty soon, considering that we’re doubling in size every six months.

We are partitioning data processing pipelines across multiple hot datacenters and rethinking queueing systems that now handle hundreds of millions of jobs. Peak load is still a bit stressful for us, but we’re hard at work building the next generation platform that will scale with grace and can be operated with ease.

The Core Infrastructure team is building systems for consumption by all the other engineering teams at Uber. Our frontend developers build the customer facing part of these systems.

WE’RE LOOKING FOR:

Experience. You’ve built side projects or professionally utilized the latest stacks and JavaScript libraries such as Node.js, React, Angular and Backbone. You can make magic with CSS. You are excited by the amazing pace that the web continues to evolve. You seek new methods and tools to make great websites faster and more beautiful.

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.

Versatility. In addition to having an intimate knowledge of the frontend layer, you can dip down into the stack when needed.

Strong architecture chops. You know how to build performant client-side experiences with code bases that scale for a large number of developers. You stay up-to-date with the latest 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.

PERKS

Sharp, motivated co-workers in a fun office environment.

Competitive compensation.

Monthly gym reimbursement.

Breakfast and lunch onsite.

Cool downtown office.

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.
