Work closely with engineering teams to build technologies that will address real problems and change the way people move and cities operate. You’ll be part of a small team that will be tasked with quickly understanding the real world challenges of our light electric vehicle fleets, rapidly prototyping and evaluating sensing and robotics solutions to those challenges, and assisting with the integration of validated solutions into our production vehicles for large scale deployment.
Collaborate with counterparts in engineering, program management, vehicle design and operations to define, scope and develop sensing and robotics solutions for the large, meaningful problems facing our light electric vehicle fleets.
Collaborate with the group’s general manager to craft the product vision and roadmap that helps guide day-to-day engineering work and provides a framework for other members of the engineering team to prioritize their work within.
Take ownership over the translation of our long term product vision into a set of incremental product releases, decomposing complex problems and long term goals into a series of feasible, viable and desirable discrete steps along the way.
Define clear success metrics for stage gates in the product development process from start to production deployment.
