Can someone shed some light on some of the following teams at Uber un terms of Growth potential, tech stack, business value etc

1. Marketplace
2. Rider
3. UberEats
4. U4B

I have an onsite interview in a few weeks and the recruiter suggested I pick a team to interview with since the initial team's position isn't currently available.

I currently work on building enterprise solutions primarily using core java. My tech stack isn't very impressive at my current company and that's the reason I'm looking to move.

    If I had to rank, Iโ€™d say eats, rider, marketplace and then u4B

      OP
      Just by reading some blogs I was leaning more towards Marketplace. I felt UberEats team was catered more for people with Android/iOS dev experience. I might be wrong though. Rider I really couldn't find out a lot. Is marketplace a more less innovating team? Why would you rank it 3rd?

      Lots of more meaty opportunities on Eats too.

      Canโ€™t speak too much to marketplace but DEFINITELY not least innovative. a lot of the Uber dynamics happen on that team.

      @SCghost: Could you elaborate on the meaty opportunities you are referring to? (I am a new grad deciding between eats and rider, super interested in customer-facing dev)

      OP
      I was looking for teams primarily based in Palo Alto. They didn't suggest developer platform as an option

    Eats. A much smaller team but fast growing biz with a ton of career growth opportunities

      Pretty sure theyโ€™re open to hiring new grads. If recruiter gave you that option, you should be good

      Just applied recently for the new Grad Role for uber but I guess it might be general SWE so wasnโ€™t sure how you can choose the team you want
