Sr Data Warehouse Engineer - Data Engineering

Uber Overview

Many companies are data driven, but being on the bleeding edge of the P2P Ride-Sharing / Logistics / Transportation industry, we literally partner with Data to pwn a whole new world of challenges. Every Uber employee is hands on with data 24 hours a day. Data is the center of our business— it drives the development of our world class service, highlights the effectiveness of incentives and promotions, measures the reach and effectiveness of localized marketing campaigns, and surfaces opportunities to improve how Uber operates. It is impossible to be at Uber and not feel the presence of Data.

Needless to say, as a member of Data Engineering at Uber, you will be at the epicenter of an amazing company experiencing extreme growth and solving the challenges that come with scaling rapidly.
