About the Role
You will participate in the unique effort of bringing innovative state-of-the-art deep-learning models for self-driving into production, and onto autonomous vehicles. You will collaborate closely with a team of highly skilled researchers and engineers, tackling an array of challenges related to applying machine learning to self-driving vehicles. You will work on a variety of software engineering tasks related to development and deployment of algorithms for detection & perception, prediction, motion planning & automated map production, to name a few.
What You’ll Need
Minimum 4 years experience building production level software systems, preferably with Python and C++ (candidates not meeting this requirement but excel in other competencies will be considered)
Comfortable developing in a Linux environment (or happy to quickly get up to speed)
Demonstrable track-record of learning and deep-diving as needed into complex existing and new technologies
Intense sense of ownership, initiative-taking, and a can-do attitude
Great attention to detail and a data-driven approach to problem solving
Team-player with a strong collaboration and communication skills, who is able to motivate and mobilize cross-functional teams, and respond positively to feedback
Bonus Points (optional)
