Job Summary

We are looking for a Research Engineer with a broad skill set to help us develop advanced Autonomous Vehicle (AV) related technologies. We develop perception, control, and system modeling technologies. Working alongside other engineers and designers, you will survey available literature, assess existing state-of-the-art approaches, and adapt methods and algorithms to develop effective solutions. Great candidates will have a strong grasp of statistics and computer science fundamentals. We value ideas from non-AV technical domains and lifelong learners who don’t mind project-based workloads and are ok not mastering deep specialties (we’re talking about you, generalists!).

What You’ll Do

  • Effectively contribute both independently and collaboratively with other members of the team after receiving initial direction and requirements from project leads
  • Develop software prototypes in high-level languages and work with software engineers to create and test production code
  • Model sensor, communication, and vehicle systems
  • Prepare written reports and briefings
  • Support planning and execution of data collection exercises and test events
  • Analyze data, identify issues, communicate results

What You’ll Need

  • Bachelor’s degree in engineering, applied mathematics, applied physics, or related field
  • Solid programming skills in Python, C/C++, Matlab, or Java
  • Strong grasp of linear algebra, probability, and statistics
  • Ability to discern when you can work independently and when you need guidance and mentoring
  • Interest in learning about and applying advanced technology to new problems

Bonus Points For

  • Graduate study in engineering, applied mathematics, applied physics or related field
  • 1-3 years post-college experience in any of the following areas:
    • Signal/image processing and video analytics
    • Sensors and sensor processing (lidar, radar, ultrasonics, cameras, GPS receivers, IMUs, etc.)
    • Detection, tracking, and classification
    • System/requirements engineering
    • Data analysis, machine learning, and information science
  • Experience in software engineering and testing
