Posted on: October 11, 2021

Job Description:

This would lead to unusable Uber experiences.   On the business side, this team generates *billions* of dollars in gross booking for the company by efficiently balancing between request conversion and rider welfare. On the technology front, this team defines reliability in Uber Marketplace's realtime pricing products, measures the gains and costs in trip throughput and rider welfare, and optimizes them in realtime (before rider shipping session converts), at scale (hundreds of thousands of decisions per second), through a data-driven approach. Specifically, this team collects user intent, processes this data through machine learning models and eventually makes the dynamic pricing decisions for each rider session.     *What the Candidate Will Need / Bonus Points*   ---- What the Candidate Will Do ----
