Lead Software Engineer, Robotics Infrastructure Libraries
at Argo AI
Pittsburgh, PA and Metro Detroit, MI and Palo Alto, CA and Princeton, NJ
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 robotics infrastructure libraries team owns the underlying libraries and pipelines powering our algorithms on vehicle. The team propose and develop common APIs that are tailored to our onboard real time autonomy stack. We work on algorithms like safe and fast geometry computations, inference libraries, efficient data structures... Some example of our challenges: Do we answer the need of our customers, the autonomy teams? Can we meet real time on the stack? How can we make a specific subsystem or algorithm faster? Are those APIs easy to use and composable? Do they vectorize well?
What you’ll do:
Lead a team of 5 to 7 people focused on onboard high level C++ library support
Help the onboard teams to translate their ideas into reality on the vehicle (architecture, sizing, etc)
Develop high level APIs and libraries for the onboard teams algorithms to rely on (high level as inference algorithm, robotic data structures, etc)
Improve the overall latency of the system to improve its safety
What we’re looking for:
Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field
Strong software engineering skills, preferably in C++
Good leadership and mentoring skills
Strong or good intuition about software design, systems and architecture
Familiarity with compilers, embedded and/or coming from industries like high frequency trading, game engines, real time systems desired
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.
We know it takes competitive benefits to fuel a team that works hard and enjoys the challenge. At Argo AI, you can expect stellar perks to support your best self:
High-quality individual and family health, dental, and vision insurance
