SOFTWARE ENGINEER – Fraud

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 building 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 young and rapidly growing Fraud Engineering team at Uber.

You will work with internal and external partners tackling 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.
