TL;DR: Uber has to perform massive numbers of updates to a table with lots of indexes. Postgres currently handles that less well than MySQL. See https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/5797D5A1.5030009@agliodbs.com

Unless you have the same circumstances, Uber’s rationale for the switch likely doesn’t apply to you.
