How high is Uber's hiring bar for software engineers in 2015?

How high is Uber’s hiring bar for software engineers in 2015?

High but not the highest.

The ‘rumours’ are generally true.

  • Jay Z really is one of the greatest rappers of all time
  • Pele is one of the best soccer players ever
  • Steve Jobs was a creative genius
  • Elon Musk is probably even better

AND.

  • Google is a software company
    • So is Palantir
    • So is Facebook
    • Google is most popular
    • Palantir is most ‘covert/off the map/black-ops’
    • Facebook is ubiquitous

Uber ARE NOT a software company in the same way as those listed above

So.

Google, Palantir, Facebook (and ‘fashionable others’) Will be higher.

Uber’s will be slightly lower than all of the above.

Meaning:

Their hiring bar is indeed high. But not the highest.
