Research Intern, Uber ATG (2020)

Research & Development, Advanced Technologies Group
in San Francisco, California

About the Role

Research interns at Uber ATG R&D will have the flexibility to pursue a range of different directions in research and application. Some projects might involve fundamental machine learning and AI research, pushing the frontiers of the field by developing new algorithms for learning and control. Others could include devising and training new models based on Uber's huge self-driving car data sets. These models may be seen through to production where they will impact millions. Interns will have the opportunity to work directly with a distinguished group of researchers and engineers in ATG Research group, and across other product and operations teams at Uber ATG.

An internship will last for 16 weeks or more and will span a time-frame that is suitable for the candidate. During this period, interns will meet with researchers and teams across Uber ATG and converge on initial project directions, and mentorship will be arranged.Interns will be encouraged to publish their work externally at top machine learning venues (NIPS, ICLR, ICML, CVPR, EMNLP, ACL, etc.), via blog posts, or by posting open source projects.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Actively pursuing BS, MS, or PhD in a technical field, and returning back to school after the internship is complete.
  • Coursework in or working knowledge of linear algebra, calculus, and probability.
  • Coding ability in Python or C/C++
  • Demonstrated experience with machine learning or deep learning algorithms, and demonstrated passion for the same. If you're excited about ML, show us what you've done so far!

Preferred Qualifications

Demonstrated success at self-driven projects: whether you coded something great from the ground up, executed a beautiful research project, organized a group of your peers to action, asked and answered an important societal question, or started a company, we're looking for people that are used to pressing toward ambitions, exciting goals.

A strong track record of open source contributions in any area, particularly machine learning. Impactful, well-cited publications in any field, particularly machine learning. Interns will work from Uber ATG's R&D locations (San Francisco, CA OR Toronto, Canada). We strongly encourage applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds and from anywhere in the world! Candidates who need a visa to work in the US are also encouraged to apply; we will investigate options on a case-by-case basis for those who are accepted.

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.
