At Uber, we ignite opportunity by setting the world in motion. We take on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters get moving in more than 600 cities around the world.
We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let's move the world forward, together.
About the Role
The Routing & Navigation team at Uber ATG builds offboard systems and tools to route self-driving vehicles along the road network to their destinations. This problem space is more challenging and dynamic than routing for human drivers, as self-driving vehicles have limited capabilities compared to people which dramatically affects their routes and ETAs. Furthermore, as we will be deploying a mixed fleet of vehicles including those built by third-party partners (e.g., Daimler and Toyota), each with different capabilities, our routing stack will need to support returning different routes for different vehicles.
We're building the packet-switched network for the physical world, and routing is at the core of it.

* Demonstrated ability to lead high-function technical teams.
About the Team
At the Advanced Technologies Group (ATG), we are building technologies that will transform the way the world moves. Our teams in Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Phoenix, and Toronto are dedicated to mapping, software and hardware development, vehicle safety, and operations for self-driving technology. Our teams are passionate about developing a self-driving system that will one day move people and things around more safely, efficiently, and cost effectively.
At Uber, we believe technology has the power to make transportation more efficient, accessible, and safer than ever before. Self-driving technology has the potential to make these benefits an everyday reality for our customers, but it's not going to happen overnight. Building best-in-class self-driving technology will take time, and safety is our priority every step of the way. Operating inclusively and transparently, while displaying responsible behavior in a structured development are critical to safety. We at ATG seek candidates who will role model these values.
Uber is a provider of a mobile application connecting passengers with drivers for hire.
