Late Stage

Uber is a technology company that is building products that revolutionize the physical world. We are building technology people use everyday. Whether it's heading home from work, getting a meal delivered from a favorite restaurant, or a way to earn extra income, Uber is becoming part of the fabric of daily life. We're making cities safer, smarter, and more connected. And we're doing it at a global scale-energizing local economies and bringing opportunity to millions of people around the world. Uber's positive impact is tangible in the communities we operate in, and that drives us to keep moving forward.

Within Uber, we're a small special projects team, working on new ideas that have great synergies with Uber's core products (think what UberEats, UberFreight, ect once were). Think startup within a startup.

It's a very exciting time to be joining the team; no other company does a better job of taking a product and scaling it out quickly than Uber (for example, UberEats is one of the fastest growing businesses in history). We recently received executive buy in at the highest levels of the company. With the stage of the team, you'll have a key role is shaping the direction of the product.

  • Uber has tremendous assets in the market that we're entering, and will allow us to build a stronger product that competitors more quickly.

Engineering at Uber
Engineering team and processes

Currently, we're a small engineering team of 3 people. Each team member has to take on large responsibilities and shapes the direction of the features and systems they build. While each team member has their own area of expertise (mobile, web, backend), everyone contributes throughout the stack. We try to maintain a relatively lightweight process that keeps team alignment with minimal overhead.

While we've found good initial product market fit, we're still in the stage of quickly iterating on the product. This means we'll often take the tradeoff of moving fastest. However we are mindful of not making decisions that will slow us down in the long run. For example, we've invested heavily in tooling that will help us move faster such as strong CI/CD, ect.

Technical Challenges

We have a unique environment within Uber where all of our engineers are very close to the product; an ideal candidate would thrive when given the responsibilities of shaping the products and features their working on.

Projects you might work on
  • One of the first projects that a newly joined engineer took was rewriting v0 of one of our apps into v1, given the learnings we'd made over the past several months.

  • The core of our product is matching between our demand and supply side. We're building out strong matching tech will link millions of supply partners with earnings opportunities.

  • We'll be moving our apps from react native into native iOS and Android using Uber's mobile architecture.

Working at Uber

We're a startup within Uber, this means we try to maintain a move fast and scrappy culture. The team is still small, 3 engineering member and 10 total across operations, sales, and product. It can be a chaotic environment at times, especially given the fact that our business is quite operationally intensive. All our team is highly committed to the project.
