Argo AI was founded to tackle one of the most challenging applications in computer science, robotics and artificial intelligence with self-driving vehicles. Argo AI is developing and deploying the latest advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning and computer vision to help build safe and efficient self-driving vehicles that enable these transformations and more. The challenges are significant, but we are a team that believes in tackling hard, meaningful problems to improve the world.
We are building a high-performance team that is excited by complex engineering challenges and is passionate about making transportation safer, more affordable and accessible for all.
The Argo AI tracking team is responsible for developing algorithms and code to allow an autonomous vehicle to understand its world. The tracking team works closely with the various sensor perception teams to perform signal processing and data fusion, and ensuring the perception system generates a precise, temporally consistent representation of the environment.
What you'll do:
- Ideal candidates will be experienced software engineers who code tracking algorithms in C++, CUDA, and/or OpenCL to enable real-time processing of data to improve our self-driving cars’ ability to navigate urban environments
- Your work will be essential to fielding these vehicles and you will have direct exposure to real world data and feedback, and the satisfaction of having contributed to a state-of-the art autonomous vehicle
- You will be part of a broader perception team and will participate in discussions and brainstorming
What we're looking for:
- Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field (MSc/PhD preferred)
- Knowledgeable in areas pertaining to tracking: state estimation and filtering (KF, EKF, UKF, PF), data association and related graphical algorithms, statistics and modeling uncertainty, optimization techniques (Gauss-Newton, integer programming, quadratic programming), machine learning (both shallow and deep techniques), 2D/3D geometry, computer vision, robotics, LiDAR, radar, sensor fusion, preferred
- Strong background developing with C++ including the use of templates, multiple-inheritance, and abstract classes
- Significant experience optimizing code to be both compute and memory efficient
- Software system architecture design
- Good communications skills
- Experience in Linux environments is desired
- Experience developing, and evaluating realtime tracking systems, preferred
At Argo AI, we have a strong emphasis on creating a highly effective team environment. Thus, we seek candidates that can work effectively with others across a broad range of disciplines.
Argo AI is an equal opportunity employer that believes in diversity as a strength and is committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
