Localization Tech Lead Manager / Engineering Manager

Software Engineering, Advanced Technologies Group
in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

About the Role

Uber ATG is seeking an experienced Engineering Manager to help grow and guide our Localization team. The group is comprised of diverse engineers, researchers, roboticists, and computer scientists working to develop accurate localization and associated mapping technologies for self-driving vehicles. Reliability and scalability are key drivers for us as our software must perform flawlessly across a large fleet of vehicles in large and diverse operating areas worldwide.


The localization team pursues algorithms that incorporate inertial sensors, lidar, and vision-based approaches. State of the art sensor fusion and optimization along with other perception-based localization approaches are utilized onboard our vehicles to provide high-accuracy vehicle pose estimates.


If you have software engineering management experience and prior technical experience in vehicle positioning, map-relative localization, or state estimation fields, please consider joining our team. We have an ambitious objective and would love to explore your skills.

Depending on background and interests, there is also an opportunity to contribute as a technical leader where you will stay close to the code, but still have a small team that reports to you.

What You'll Do

  • Work with an outstanding engineering team to solve some of the most difficult real-world technical challenges
  • Help grow the team and the careers of individual contributors
  • Contribute to the long-term vision of the team and organization
  • Establish and manage processes for efficient team execution
  • See your work deployed fast and often into the real world and stretch yourself as you switch from one tough problem to another

What You'll Need

  • 5 minimum years of experience with Localization and Mapping technology
  • 2 minimum years of experience managing people and their performance

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, Toronto, and Boulder 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.

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.
