About the Role

At Uber's Advanced Technologies Group (ATG), we are on a mission to bring safe, reliable self-driving transportation to everyone, everywhere. We are building technologies that will transform the way the world moves. Our teams in Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Toronto, Seattle, and Boulder are dedicated to mapping, software and hardware development, vehicle safety, and operations for self-driving technology. We 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 Software Engineering team has a fascinating, diverse mix of teams. From deep learning and neural networks, to robotics, maps, simulation, to security and data science; if there's a type of software you're interested in, we are probably doing it. Uber is uniquely well-positioned to bring self-driving to the world through its ride-sharing network.

Interns will join a specific team within the ATG Software group based on their technical skill set, location preference(s), and interest in machine learning, computer vision, motion planning and controls.

Please note that this application will be availble until October 5.
