Job Description

You like sifting through terabytes of data, moving them from system to system, transforming them from one format to the other in the most efficient way. You are passionate about developing scalable, flexible and fault tolerant software systems. You are creative and not afraid of exploring new technologies. Well, we want you to put all of those skills to use as one of the key members of a rapidly growing Fraud Engineering team at Uber.

You will work with internal and external partners taking on fraud from soup to nuts… from helping to define and isolate the problem space to engineering next-generation solutions. Your goals are simple: help zero in on fraudulent activity before it happens and make a significant impact on the company's bottom line.

What you'll need

  • Excellent engineering background
  • Experience in distributed, scalable, fault tolerant and high performant systems
  • Experience in capturing, handling, manipulating, transforming large scale data
  • SOA experience
  • An open and curious nature and motivated self-starter attitude - we've got a problem to solve and need you to figure out how to resolve it
  • Skills in Python, MySQL, Node.js, etc.
  • Experience in frontend technologies, such as JQuery, is a plus
  • Experience in the fraud space is a plus, but not required. Either way, you should be passionate about taking on the problem and the impact you can have on the company.

We're bringing Uber to every major city in the world. We need your skills and passion to help make it happen!
