Located in the heart of Latin America’s largest city, the Uber Sao Paulo Tech Center was founded in late 2018 as a company-wide hub for Safety Tech. The team is composed of product managers, UX designers, engineers and data scientists. As part of Uber’s mission to put the safety of our users first, our Sao Paulo-based Tech team is...
Introduction Recently there has been substantial discussion around the downsides of service oriented architectures and microservice architectures in particular. While only a few years ago, many people readily adopted microservice architectures due to the numerous benefits they provide such as flexibility in the form of independent deployments, clear ownership, improvements in system stability, and better separation of concerns, in recent...
Millions of users use Uber’s applications everyday across the globe, accessing seamless transportation or meal delivery at the push of a button. To achieve this accessibility at scale, our mobile apps require low-latency and highly reliable network communication, regardless of where customers use our services. The network communication for all of Uber’s mobile applications are powered by the edge and...
Project Homepage: GitHub Over the past several years, increasing processing power of computing machines has led to an increase in machine learning advances. More and more, algorithms exploit parallelism and rely on distributed training to process an enormous amount of data. However, the resulting need to increase both data and training impose great challenges on the software that manages and...
Uber built and open sourced nebula.gl, a tool set for full-featured geospatial editing in the web browser, to better visualize large-scale data sets.
Self-driving cars have long been considered the future of transportation, but they’re becoming more present everyday. Uber ATG (Advanced Technologies Group) is at the forefront of this technology, helping bring safe, reliable self-driving vehicles to the streets. Of course, this wouldn’t be possible without the work of the engineers building the ATG platform’s underlying technologies. As the senior manager for...
