Job Description

Uber's Marketplace is the network of drivers transporting people, pets, food and packages. It is responsible for fulfilling requests from riders while striving to enhance driver utilization and minimize the cost of transportation.

At Marketplace Dynamics, we're building and optimizing this logistics network of the future. It's a multi-dimensional optimization problem with the goal of keeping a healthy, efficient and reliable marketplace. This is where the Marketplace health team comes in to help define, understand and measure what a healthy marketplace of riders, drivers and trips/food/packages looks like. We develop complex diagnostic, dynamic control, anomaly alerting, and geo-temporal visualization technology to identify opportunities for improving marketplace health in every neighborhood, in real time.

If creating large, scalable backend systems for answering questions that impact almost every aspect of the Uber business is what excites you, come talk to us!

  • Working together with high caliber engineers, data scientists, data visualization engineers and product leads at the forefront of a transformative and innovative business. To excel in this role, you should be able to adapt to problems quickly and be comfortable communicating, collaborating and executing with little oversight.
  • Create systems that answer interesting higher order questions in real time about health, reliability and efficiency of a marketplace
  • You will help not only to identify anomalies and trends with the systems that you have built, but also to explore the opportunities for improvement of the marketplace health and to automatically suggest the recommended actions.
  • You will be collaborating with engineers from multiple core teams within Marketplace Dynamics and city ops across the world to help tune this very complex system to run at its global optimum for the best experience for our riders and driver partners.

What we're looking for

  • At least 5 years of successfully shipped scalable backend software experience.
