Sr. Software Engineer

Software, Advanced Technologies Group
in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

About the Role

The Simulation Scale team develops ATG's self-driving vehicle offline testing execution framework and tooling. We run autonomy simulations at massive scale, utilizing large scale compute and services for execution, data collection and accessing results of offline tests. Hundreds of developers use our system every day to test and assess new self-driving capabilities, root cause issues, and measure performance. We work closely with all autonomy and system teams to ensure the simulation test system is highly available, reliable and efficient for the scale of operations at ATG. Creating the software that drives a self-driving car requires a large amount of simulated testing to ensure safety and capability requirements are being met, and we make sure that process is efficient and seamless in the development workflow.

What You'll Do

  • Design and develop large, distributed batch execution, data collection and processing services in the cloud
  • Collaborate with teams across the autonomy, systems engineering, and vehicle platform groups to help them get the signal they need from offline testing to assess autonomy performance
  • Propose new code designs and write technical design documents
  • Lead and drive key projects for the Scale team
  • Mentor junior team members and maintain engineering excellence
