  • Develop telemetry systems which allow our vehicles to stream video and data on-demand over LTE
  • Maintain the on-vehicle code responsible for data collection, monitoring and real-time communication
  • Build scalable data pipelines which operate over petabytes of autonomous vehicle data to extract useful features, enable advanced queries, and power machine learning pipelines and simulation environments
  • Maintain the software execution environment for our vehicles including the host operating system, containerized environments, and their deployment procedures.

Your Experience Might Include:

  • Experience with big data and/or infrastructure
  • BS, MS or PhD in Computer Science, Engineering, or equivalent real-world experience
