Uber vs Uber Eats

Hi all, I will be interning at Uber this summer and was given an option to intern at Uber Eats in NYC. The other option would be "normal" Uber in SF. Unfortunately, this is as much as I know right now. What have you guys heard about Eats? Do you think it would be a good idea?

    For an internship, I would definitely choose HQ over a satellite office.

      I will definitely echo this. You miss out on much of the key programs that give the internship soul (i.e. weekly all hands at the cafeteria, speakers, events, etc.) You can always dial in, but it isn't the same.

      Disagree, NYC engineering team is stronger than HQ

      You’re comparing multiple teams at different offices to one another collectively. Variance between teams is higher at HQ than in NYC, but I can think of teams in HQ such as software networking or infra performance that are head and shoulders better engineers than any team in NYC. Observability in NYC is a strong team there that is stronger than most teams at HQ. Either way, you have way more chance of finding a strong team working in a problem space you’d in enjoy at HQ.

    Eats is a great group, however a reorg is moving the interesting work happening in NYC to SF. Pick SF.

      Politely disagree. Restaurants team moving to NYC, and that work is pretty damn interesting and new

      Why do you think the (more) interesting work is moving to SF?

    Take Eats. You will have fun. Lots of hands on experience. Less bureaucracy there.

    Eats is probably the most exciting org, as a whole, at Uber right now. Definitely the place to be

    Also consider where you want to live, SF or NYC.

    SF/HQ is the right thing to do. NYC is the fun thing to do. Make your choice

    Eats is bunch of half out the door Uber engineers who thought to go to Eats as opposed to quitting Uber. Join the real Uber.

    I would go with Eats, at least you get to sample your customer's food on route. Oh, come on, you know some of the drivers do that.
