  • Fluency or deep competency in:
    • Leading system/design/software Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), or other risk assessments from inception
    • Diverse testing methods including simulation, Hardware-In-Loop (HIL), laboratory, track, and field testing
    • Consistently demonstrating creativity, practicality, and maturity in approaching system safety
    • Provide frequent, simple and clear written and verbal communication of complex ideas to internal teams, peers and stakeholders
    • Process engineering and tooling design to enable highly accurate and efficient results for all autonomy software performance analysis efforts
    • Analysis of large, complex data sets
  • Previous experience and demonstrated success:
    • Collaboration with a diverse, cross-functional team across multiple geographic locations
    • Effective adaptation of standard systems engineering processes to unique new technology applications
    • Training engineering & systems analyst teams and building relationships in support of safety processes and culture
    • Making complex, data driven decisions when working on large integrated software systems in test
    • Sophisticated, mission-critical hardware or software within automotive or another industry (e.g., aerospace, defense, medical, transportation)


What You’ll Need

  • BS or MS degree in Systems Engineering, Computer Science, Information Systems, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, or another relevant engineering field
    • OR 3+ years of highly relevant industry experienceSenior Candidates will have:
  • 7+ years of relevant industry experience
  • BS or MS degree in Systems Engineering, Computer Science, Information Systems, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, or another relevant engineering field
  • Bonus points for:
    • Experience building highly-reliable and scalable products in Full Stack JavaScript

About the Team

At the Advanced Technologies Group (ATG), we are building technologies that will transform the way the world moves. Our teams in Pittsburgh, San Francisco, and Toronto are dedicated to mapping, software and hardware development, vehicle safety, and operations for self-driving technology. Our teams are passionate about developing a self-driving system that will one day move people and things around more safely, efficiently, and cost effectively.




At Uber, we believe technology has the power to make transportation more efficient, accessible, and safer than ever before. Self-driving technology has the potential to make these benefits an everyday reality for our customers, but it’s not going to happen overnight.  Building best-in-class self-driving technology will take time, and safety is our priority every step of the way. Operating inclusively and transparently, while displaying responsible behavior in a structured development are critical to safety. We at ATG seek candidates who will role model these values.
