Camera Systems Lead

Hardware Engineering & Vehicle Programs, Advanced Technologies Group in Pittsburgh, PA

At Uber, we ignite opportunity by setting the world in motion. We take on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters get moving in more than 600 cities around the world.


We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let’s move the world forward, together.

Uber ATG is developing high performance camera modules to meet the challenging requirements of its self driving car and truck products.  


The Camera Hardware Lead will be intimately involved at all phases of the program, but ultimately owns the technical design and execution of the camera hardware.  They will work with key cross-functional counterparts on software, product and program management, business development, systems engineering, supply chain, and safety to ensure all use cases and requirements are captured.


They are responsible for ensuring that what we are building meets the product requirements.  At the start of a new product they drive investigations of the technical space to understand feasibility and estimate the efforts involved in achieving the desired results; especially key is understanding the tradeoffs and risks between multiple solutions to a new problem.  As the product moves into the execution phase, they own the work planning and resource allocation (internal and external). As the product gets closer to delivery, they own testing their solutions to ensure they meet the product requirements and metrics. Finally, they must collaborate with internal supply chain teams, external vendors, and contract manufacturers to transition the design into production.


The Camera Hardware Lead will also be responsible for roadmapping the evolution of Uber ATG’s camera hardware, aligning internal software development strategies with state of the art technology advancements.


What You’ll Do

  • Create and own hardware technical requirements for Uber’s self-driving vehicle cameras (image sensor, lens, electronics, housing, etc)
  • Build a hardware roadmap that aligns our technical development with Uber’s overall product strategy - from prototype development to initial MVP to large scale production and deployment
  • Understand the customers of the hardware (internal and external), how it will be tested or used, and how this translates to technical specifications for the hardware throughout the product development life cycle
  • Work with program management teams to scope and develop the technical work plan, required resources, and manage risk / progress / blockers
  • Collaborate with component and system level verification and validation teams to ensure the camera hardware meets all technical and product requirements
  • Develop a deep understanding of Uber’s software development roadmaps and strategies, the competitive landscape, and the implications for our camera hardware
  • Build and maintain relationships with technical counterparts at key suppliers and external partners in collaboration with our business development and supply chain teams

What You’ll Need

  • At least 5 to 10 years of relevant industry experience
  • New product development, research and development
  • High volume manufacturing and product launch
  • Autonomy software (perception, mapping, localization, planning)
  • Complex electromechanical and/or optomechanical products (image sensor, lens, electronics, housing, etc)
  • Experience working with suppliers and external partners
  • Willing to travel


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


Our hardware team's role is to develop and integrate UBER self-driving technologies into existing and future vehicle platforms of multiple OEM’s at scale.
