TechOps - Network Engineer

Uber Overview

Urban transportation has looked the same for a long time—a really long time. We think it’s time for change. At Uber, we’re putting first-class, on-demand transportation at everyone’s fingertips. Are you ready to help us change the world?

This role is part of a strategic team responsible for designing, building and managing Uber’s growing production data centers, backbone and peering network.

Job Description

HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING:

  • Design, engineer, build and support all facets of our production data center networks and points of presence around the world.
  • Embrace cross-team collaboration, debate, and presentation. You’ll work closely with people across Engineering and Business orgs to develop and implement network-based solutions that support our rapid growth.
  • Help design and deploy our automated provisioning, problem remediation, and telemetry tools.
  • Apply your intellectual curiosity and research new technologies, figure out their practical applications within our framework and then bring it to life in production networks. As part of a very small team, you will have an outsized impact on the future of Uber and our technical infrastructure.

HERE ARE THE KINDS OF SKILLS WE’RE LOOKING FOR:

  • A minimum of 5 years experience in IP networking. Previous stints at large enterprise or service-provider networks where you were responsible for design and architecture are strongly preferred.
  • Expertise in TCP, IPv4/6, QoS/CoS, and dynamic routing protocols such as BGP and IS-IS.
  • Solid Junos and IOS or EOS skills.
  • Knowledge of Linux and experience troubleshooting the life of a packet from client to server and back (and all possible intermediate nodes along the way).
  • Experience with many network hardware platforms and the implications and tradeoffs of different types.
  • A relentless desire to build each network better than the last. Treat networking, operational efficiency, and automation as sciences with room for breakthrough.
