About the Role
We are looking for talented engineers to join the Storage team whose mission is to develop and manage the database platform storing the majority of the operational data at Uber. We develop infrastructure which helps run Uber's large scale database deployments in an automated fashion and dynamically scale it to the business needs while ensuring that highest levels of reliability and uptime are achieved
--- What the Candidate Will Do ----
  • Own backend systems such as our in-house sharded MySQL solution Docstore, MyRocks and other infrastructure components necessary to deploy and run databases at scale
  • Develop and maintain current as well as next-generation storage infrastructure that is core to Uber's business.
  • Write maintainable and extensible code with high quality tests and documentation for the Control Plane and production automation to help manage large scale database deployments.
  • Debug production issues, develop capacity plans and work on improving performance and efficiency throughout the stack
  • Collaborate with others, both from Storage and from application engineering teams, to ensure that the infrastructure we are building works seamlessly and best serves application engineers.
  • Share an on-call rotation and be an escalation contact for Storage platform incidents

---- Basic Qualifications ----
  • Bachelor's degree or higher in an engineering field (e.g. Computer Science, Computer Engineering, etc.)
  • 3+ years software development experience.
  • Experience implementing complex projects with multiple dependencies.
  • Experience coding with Go, Java, C++ or Python.

---- Preferred Qualifications ----
  • Production experience in configuring and operating large scale database deployments (for example MySQL)
  • Knowledge of distributed systems. For example, you know the tradeoffs of different sharding and replication strategies; you can reason about data consistency in a distributed environment.
  • Experience analyzing, monitoring, and troubleshooting large-scale, high-traffic distributed systems
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, including the ability to write detailed technical documents.

An Insider's view of Uber

What’s the vibe like in the office?

When I went into the office for my final interview with Uber, I had the same feeling that I did when I stepped onto my college’s campus for the first time: it just felt like the right fit. The office was high-paced but also relaxed and you could immediately tell that people were friends and genuinely enjoyed being there.

Account Executive, Uber Eats

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

One of the big challenges today with experimentation is around guaranteeing correctness, especially for small changes to ensure confidence in results. Was that change the cause of new behavior? Did other experiments get in the way? It all comes down to how accurately you can detect small changes within consumer behavior.

Azarias Reda

Head of Uber's Experimentation API team

What makes someone successful on your team?

"It’s not just about the individual contributor. The most successful people are the ones learning from others. On my team, I make sure that everyone shares best practices and we foster a collaborative culture. So when you’re on a call, you’re never really alone. And that applies to everyone."

Ali Faivus

Head of Mid-Market Sales

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We make sure we don’t ship org structures, but rather aligned products. How can our products complement one another, building upon each other to achieve our primary goals? Whether it’s scheduling, routing, predictive analytics, or operational excellence, we are acting as one, and smartly leveraging our domains and strengths.

Joe Chang

Director of Engineering, Uber Freight

How does your team reward individual success?

I believe recognizing someone’s contributions are a big part of team play. On our weekly meetings, we always start with a shout-out, and it’s amazing how this simple topic stimulates the team to recognize small victories and accredit colleagues for their accomplishments. This brings our team together and fosters a more collaborative environment.

Silvia Penna

Sr Manager, Central Operations
