Software Engineer - Marketplace Health (Marketplace Dynamics)

Uber Overview

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