About the Role
Uber Marketplace (https://marketplace.uber.com/) is at the core of Uber's business, and rider pricing and incentives are strategically critical components of Marketplace. The mission of the team is to foster growth and increase profitability of Uber by pushing the frontiers of machine learning, data science and economics and developing highly reliable and scalable platforms to accelerate Uber's impact to the transportation industry. The team is rapidly growing with high impact and visibility from the top. We are responsible for developing state of the art technology to optimize the pricing and incentives strategy in our platform that directly drives efficiencies and effectiveness across rider interaction with Uber. We handle a significant trunk of all the pricing and incentives budget we are spending at Uber and we aim to build long-term loyalty among Uber riders and create a healthy and balanced ecosystem. It is a challenging yet rewarding job.
As an engineer you will have a lot of opportunities to work with product managers, data scientists and of course engineers from other teams. You will participate the whole development cycle of a software product from product scoping, architecture design, software implementation, to productionization, and learn how to iterate a product for greater success. We own a few products that directly impact Uber's bottom line. We are a data driven team, and you will be able to see the impact of your work reflected in Uber's earning report, such as gross booking and trips. The least thing you need to worry about is scope and visibility. We have many different roles in the team, and need a broad range of skills such as machine learning, big data, optimization, and infrastructure. This is a unique opportunity to grow your career and do highly impactful fun things at the same time.What You'll Do
