About the Role
Uber ATG is looking to significantly grow the team responsible for building the technology used to product the HD map for the car. The AVMaps department, based in Pittsburgh and with an office in Boulder is seeking multiple experienced Software Engineering Managers to join our team. The organization is organized into several teams, each with a different technical focus and responsibility.
The Core Team is responsible for the algorithms used to build the AVMap elements directly from the data obtained from our fleet of mapping vehicles. Additionally, the team is responsible for the schema and APIs of the map and works closely with the consumers of the map, including the Autonomy Software teams on the contents and representation of the map. This team regularly works on software that incorporates sensors (such as inertial sensors, lidar, and cameras) and key data structures (such as road networks used by the autonomy algorithms). The software written by this team regularly runs on both the vehicles and within the data center and is primarily written in C++, but the team must be aware of the need for other language bindings.
All of the AVMaps teams work closely together and each Manager must be a strong leader capable of working in a team environment where the success of the department depends on all teams, Manager and Technical Leads working collaboratively on solutions. As a Manager in the ATG, you will be expected to wear many hats, form being technically competent to manage discussions with external teams and bring new technical solutions into the ATG. You are expected to be proficient at planning the work for your team and setting milestones and targets with your team. As a Manager, you will also be expected to manage the growth of your team to ensure the objectives of the ATG can be met in a timely manner.
The ATG is a very dynamic environment looking for very strong Leaders with a passion for Management. As we continue to grow and bring self driving cars to the market, you have the chance to join us, and help build the future!
