Starting a New Service

In a rapidly growing engineering organization, it can be difficult to keep track of all the efforts underway. This kind of growth demands a process to prevent duplicating work across teams. At Uber, we have solved this problem by requiring that authors of new services submit a Request for Comments (RFC), a high-level proposal of the new service that outlines its purpose, architecture, dependencies, and other implementation details.

At Uber, we have solved this problem by requiring that authors of new services submit a Request for Comments (RFC), a high-level proposal of the new service that outlines its purpose, architecture, dependencies, and other implementation details for the rest of Uber Engineering to discuss. The RFC serves two purposes: 1) to solicit feedback for improving the service’s quality as it’s developed and 2) to prevent duplicate efforts or expose opportunities for collaboration.
