With gross bookings of $37 billion for 2017 and a global reach of over 65 countries, financial forecasting and budget planning for an organization that touches the lives of so many people on a daily basis is an incredible challenge. Add an astounding rate of historical and current growth, and these tasks seem nearly impossible. Uber’s Money Platform Engineering team has worked tirelessly on a next-gen payment platform, and is constantly innovating on payment features. During this meetup, we’re excited to share these achievements with you!
