Uber is hiring

Nov 9 57 Comments

We recently open up quite a few headcounts (30+) that need to fill across mobile and backend in Marketplace and Infra. Prefer 2+ years of experience.

Message me if you are genuinely interested.

Personal opinion: it's a golden time to join us now with tons of upside potential.

    Everyone has upside potential until they don't. The company is notorious for mass layoffs lol.

      I can't say much about the story behind layoff. But it had a reason. I don't see any upcoming layoff any time soon. Now the wave is over and it's heads-down execution time.

      There’s no pip when firing the whole teams and departments including good performers.

      Exactly. It doesn't matter who you are when dismissing a whole unit.

    Why did uber not retrain their existing workforce? It’s hard to believe they were all bad apples. It is concerning that a company would lay-off a bunch of employees and then hire from outside to satisfy their immediate needs. Sounds like a churn and burn culture.

      I make it a point not to work at companies with recent layoffs.

    Recruiter reached out to me online. Wouldn't explain the details of the available positions. Recent layoffs from Uber is concerning. In addition the stock holding ppl start to be able to cash out their stocks. We can only expect the stock to slide even more. Can you explain the upside potential?

      Changing company is a big move because one encounters uncertainties in 1.future manager 2. the scope and nature of the job 3.stock uncertainties including giving up invested stock from prev companies. Just because Uber stock will fall by the time one joins seems like a very limited enticement.

      Yea, it all comes down to how much risk you want to take for the potential return. Just choose the company and product you believe in.

      Yea @googa, Google has ~40 times more room to drop technically.

    Thanks but no Thanks.
    Uber lost its reliability and prestige with the recent layoffs and the incompetent management.
    Such a mess.
    How stupid of Uber to fire and and start hiring again 😕

    Also, Stock is yet to halve

    Why did Uber lay-off in the first place if they needed more engineers? Just laying off the expensive ones?
    Nov 9 3
    • OP
      No. We still hire expensive ones as long as they are good. :) There are lots of factors to consider, but cost per person is not one of them.

    • Uber jkfh2134
      Layoffs were done to save $$$, when the company loses money its bound to have layoffs whatever the reason be

    Upside potential in terms of stock growth?
    Nov 9 3
    • OP
      Yes. At least internally we don't believe our stock only worth $27. Most people around me are not selling at this price. Just my observation here: lots of insiders still have faith and are holding here.
      Nov 9
    • Google aiXr60
      That's good to know. Are there any catalysts for stock growth in next few quarters?
      Nov 9
    • Uber / Eng UbrHiring
      (I'm the OP) Lots of new bets around fintech and new ride products. 2020 will be the year that focuses only growth.

    Uber is also doing batch hiring - a recruiter can authorize you for an on-site on a 30 minute basic screen.
    Nov 9 2
    • New 40LPA
      it's the same in other companies also right? Google has a 45 min screening before onsite.

      A 45 minute technical screening with an engineer after doing a leetcode question.

      This was a 30 minute interview with a recruiter asking you what the difference between a stack and queue is and you just have to say: FIFO vs LIFO.

    Hey folks, I'm the OP. I recently reinstalled the blind app but forgot my blind password and a re-login gave me a new account.

    Thanks for all the interest and I did receive a few really solid resumes. Keep them coming. PM me if you're interested!

      Are you hiring interns as well ?
      Nov 16
    • Uber / Eng UbrHiring
      Interns are less likely. But message me if you're really interested and really strong. I can ask around.

      Also just FYI, most of our new grad hires are from return interns. So if you are really interested, I will recommend you to try to get an internship first.
