Job Description

We're the driverless car company.

We believe in improving people's lives by making transportation safer, more accessible, and more convenient. We're building the world's most advanced software to fuel the driverless cars that safely connect people to the places, things, and experiences they care about.

We seek and embrace diversity in all of its forms. We continuously push ourselves to think differently and take ownership wherever it's needed. This is a place for dreamers and doers to succeed. If you share our passion for achieving what some say is impossible, join us.

We're looking for Applied Scientists of all levels to drive critical architecture decisions in our ML pipeline.

About the role:

The Autonomous Vehicle (AV) software stack heavily relies on machine learning. Throughout the lifecycle of each machine learning model, skilled ML engineers work closely to design, build, train, and deploy machine learning models into our unique AV systems. In this position, you will work closely with machine learning engineers from different AV Engineering teams (e.g. Computer Vision, Prediction), covering different algorithms across the AV software stack. If you're interested in solving some of the most exciting machine learning problems in the industry, then chat with us!

* Research, design, and develop new machine learning solutions and algorithms.
* Drive high level algorithm decisions to ensure fast and accurate machine learning in a multitude of different applications
* Deploy scalable and robust software for executing ML inferences on the car
* Implement cutting edge machine learning techniques in object classification, labelling, pose estimation, and prediction
* Use real-time state estimation and context from surroundings to predict the motion of surrounding vehicles and pedestrians for use with vehicle path planning
* Work on data association, clustering, segmentation, filtering, and estimation
* Create unified back end architecture for solving multiple ML problems
* Build robust, reliable systems to handle common and uncommon situations on the road
* Become a subject matter expert in various parts of the AV stack
