Passed Uber onsite but still might not get hired?

I recently passed the Uber interview for L4 front end web, but the team I interviewed for only wants seniors. My recruiter said there might not be any teams for me and would get back to me on Monday. Is there really a chance I don’t get matched? I’m getting anxious because this is my top choice by far. Can’t the recruiter just wait for a position to open up? It sounds like if he can’t find a team soon, they might not extend an offer.

    I am in the similar situation, I interviewed at Uber around late April, Recruiter said feedback is good, but team is looking for senior people. He told me that he is going to look for teams that might have openings for l4. Last week he told me that hiring would begin for l3/l4 around late fall.😒

      Really comforting to know I’m not the only one. Thanks for sharing the late fall hiring info. Hopefully we can eventually join.

    I had the similar situation. I passed the interview, but the team match took forever. How is your situation now?

    They may not be able to give an offer right now but in the future they can when another role opens. Any interest in Dropbox?? I would be happy to help you get a role there. I know we have open SWE UI roles open

      Sigh... thanks. I actually failed the phone screen for Dropbox. Pretty sure I won’t be able to interview again for a while.

    I received an offer from ATG, Pittsburgh recently but when I told I prefer Seattle, they found and matched team in a day (I had expiring competing offers). This is really surprising to me. I thought they are pretty good with matching teams super quick. No idea about SF though. Maybe they aren't able to find teams because your domain/background is very specific? Also, per my recruiter interview results are valid for 3-6 months.
    Try Seattle maybe (if you are open to location)

      It wasn’t too bad. Javascript/node focused problem that was reasonable to do within 30 minutes. Hit a roadblock and the interviewer was really helpful so I was able to solve it.
