Uber uses a globally diverse and fully integrated IT system consisting of a multi-platform solution to service its multi-cultural employees, contractors, and end customers.

The technology landscape at Uber has rapidly evolved over the past 3-4 years, demanding an elastic IT team to support the global user base.
