Job Description

About the Role

Uber has several thousand micro services behind the scenes that make up the Uber ecosystem. As a result, there is a ton of complexity in understanding the service dependency graph, deploying code and config, managing the resources each service uses and even in scaling the services automatically to meet our growing needs. To solve this, we are building a Next Gen Unified Deployment Compute Platform from the ground up that provides a unified experience to our service owners to provision & manage services and their resources and enables the services to scale both horizontally and vertically.

This Senior Technical Program Manager will lead the cross functional program in understanding the needs of our stakeholders across Uber, prioritizing feature requests and driving adoption to get them on the new deployment platform. To be successful they would require strong technical expertise, excellent leadership skills and hands-on program management skills. The right candidate will be adept at writing technical specifications, influencing & partnering effectively with teams, owning program schedules and communicating at all levels of the organization. With thousands of developers located around the world producing millions of lines of code and configuration each year in various programming languages to build thousands of micro services, we are already releasing software at a scale that very few companies can match.
