Our services are in the core flow of every product launch decision at the company and as a result is in the critical path of almost every app request into Uber's services across every product. Our telemetrics generate millions of logs per second which we then process with tools like Hive and Spark to generate source of truth histories for experiment performance.

We build data science tools that work in Jupyter Notebooks and our UIs that allow for push button or sophisticated ad hoc analysis of these results by our data science customers. As a staff engineer in the XP Team you'll set the technical vision for the data systems and analysis tools within the team with deep collaboration with product, data science, and the broader Uber data ecosystem.
