Inside Uber’s new Toronto Engineering Hub, with indoor mini putt, e-scooters and kombucha on tap
Uber’s gigantic new Toronto office is more than just a satellite space to house local employees. It’s one of 10 Engineering Hubs around the world, and it’s more like a north-of-the-border flagship that rivals the brand’s Silicon Valley headquarters in terms of perks and design. Employees at the new space will expand Uber’s engineering department and build up the brand’s back-end systems so that new modes of transport like bikes and e-scooters can be instantly rolled out when they’re ready. Each floor is branded in LED-backlit logos, with a decor scheme full of stylish matte-black details and playful pops of colour. The standard start-up hallmarks have gotten a makeover, too: instead of just beer and ping pong, there’s also kombucha on tap, indoor mini putt and a tricked-out meditation room with medicine balls and Muse headsets.
