The Hyderabad-based Uber Eats Engineering team led the integration of prescription delivery company NimbleRx’s backend onto the Eats platform to help launch one of the company’s latest products, delivery of prescription medicines, in parts of the US late last year.
The team completed the integration process in just three weeks, thereby allowing customers to order their prescription medication from neighborhood pharmacies or transfer their existing prescription right from their Uber Eats app.
The partnership leverages Uber Eats’ delivery expertise and ensures medicines reach residents in a timely manner, all at the tap of a button.
With COVID-19 vaccines in various stages of rollout across the US, delivery of medicines continue to be a crucial service, helping people stay protected indoors.
The team that worked on this integration comprises a total of 5 engineers, including Android and iOS engineers, a web engineer, a backend engineer, and an engineering manager said Jaiteerth Patwari, Site Lead, Eats Engineering.
