“This company is not only doing things that are amazing, this company also has some of the toughest computer science challenges that I have seen in my career of 25 years,” Singhal told me. “Those computer science challenges for a computer science geek are just intriguing – you give a geek a puzzle, they can’t drop it; they need to solve the puzzle. That’s how it felt to me.”
In an interview with Techcrunch, he said that Uber is now grown enough to operate without his day-to-day interactions. He also added that he would love to face the challenges at Uber as this is something that interests him.
