Uber's Core Infrastructure team is seeking experienced software engineers to help build the future of urban transportation. Sound interesting? Read on.
Our job is to keep the engine running. We've built the foundation of a highly cohesive, loosely coupled service-oriented architecture that's going to propel us into the next 10x-100x growth levels - which will come pretty soon, considering that we're doubling in size every six months. What's next is to build new services on top of this groundwork and transition existing platforms to it.
We're eradicating most of our vanilla single-master-multiple-slave topologies, splitting data processing pipelines up to work in multiple hot datacenters and rethinking queueing systems that now handle hundreds of millions of jobs. Peak load is still a stressful time for us, but we're hard at work building the next generation platform that will scale with grace.The Core Infrastructure team is building systems for consumption by all the other engineering teams at Uber. We're setting best practices and helping other teams architect better solutions, and we're not afraid to get our hands dirty. We might write a data store from scratch, tack a new logical solution on top of an existing one, split up a monolithic codebase or just optimize some SQL queries - we're going to go in where we're needed most and ensure that Uber is reliable, durable and scaleable.
