Software Engineer - Operations Platform

Uber Overview

The Operations Platform team builds the tools that make Uber tick. Our global operations teams grow Uber’s business in every city around the world, and we provide the tools they need to do so as quickly and intelligently as possible. From unlocking and launching new products to managing core workflows, we’re currently building the first version of many of these tools. It’s an incredible opportunity to make a huge impact on Uber at the ground level, both in terms of software and product design.

Job Description


  • Fast learner. You have expertise in areas you’ve worked in and an eagerness to learn in areas you haven’t, particularly with Python, Javascript, Go, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Vertica Redis, Kafka, and Elasticsearch..
  • Product sense. You create more than beautiful code. Engineers at Uber play a crucial role in determining 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.
  • Architecture chops. You build highly scalable, robust, and fault-tolerant services that support our unique rate-of-growth requirements.
  • Passion. You feel ownership over everything you ship; you’d never call code “released” until you’re confident it’s correct, monitored, documented, and tested.

Team player. You rely on others’ candid feedback for continuous improvement.
