Who we are:

Argo AI is in the business of building self-driving technology you can trust. With experienced leaders in the field and collaborative partnerships with some of the world’s largest automakers, we’re building self-driving technology that is engineered to scale globally and transform mobility for millions. 

Talented individuals join our team because they share our purpose to make it safe, easy, and enjoyable for everyone to get around cities. We aspire to impact key industries that move people and goods, from ride hailing to deliveries.

Meet the team:

Prediction is a core technical problem for L4 self-driving vehicles and a key part of our autonomy stack. For a self-driving vehicle to navigate the world safely and efficiently, it needs to reliably infer the underlying intent of other objects (such as vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists) by analyzing the perception data. Fundamentally, this is a machine learning problem involving multiple interacting agents subject to real-time performance constraints. We are looking for candidates with deep machine learning expertise that have built and deployed software systems to solve real world problems. Candidates need not have worked on self-driving, or robotics applications.

What you’ll do:

  • Responsible for the component of the self driving vehicle software stack to forecast what other objects in the scene will do in conjunction with the AV
  • Leading the team to advance the algorithmic performance through pragmatic and rigorous A vs B evaluations using a mix of state of the art and established techniques
  • Ensure that the algorithms are integrated within our onboard infrastructure and hardware, are robustly implemented and run in real time
  • Coordinate with offboard teams to select and label relevant data to improve our prediction algorithms and develop metrics by which the prediction system is evaluated
  • Manage a team of ~10 engineers and researchers

What you'll need to succeed:

  • Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field
  • Experienced software engineer working on problems with advanced algorithms or researcher with a track record of real world applications involving solid software engineering
  • Strong theoretical knowledge in machine learning (both classical and deep learning)
  • Preference for candidates with experience in techniques used for behavior analysis, activity recognition, intent prediction, time series forecasting and multi-agent interactions
  • Proven applied machine learning skills to solve real world problems and deal with real world data
  • Candidates should know how to manage datasets, analyze models and know how to improve performance through targeted data collection, data mining and/or labeling
  • Strong desire for candidates with hands on experience that have deployed real products or platforms into the real world and intimately understand the challenges of working with complex systems
  • Proven track record of leading small teams on highly challenging machine learning problems to solve real world applications
  • Knows how to recruit top software engineering talent
  • Knows how to recruit top machine learning talent
  • Knows how to manage and lead a strong engineering team
  • Has experience with all key aspects of attracting and maintaining a strong technical team 
  • Knows how to work programs with aggressive schedules, how to mitigate risks while still making large technical advances

What we offer you:

  • High-quality individual and family medical, dental, and vision insurance
  • Competitive compensation packages
  • Employer-matched 401(k) retirement plan with immediate vesting
  • Employer-paid group term life insurance and the option to elect voluntary life insurance 
  • Paid parental leave 
  • Paid medical leave
  • Unlimited vacation
  • Complimentary daily lunches, beverages, and snacks
  • Pre-tax commuter benefits
  • Monthly wellness stipend 
  • Professional development reimbursement
  • Employee assistance program
  • Discounted programs that include legal services, identity theft protection, pet insurance, and more
  • Company and team bonding outlets: employee resource groups, quarterly team activity stipend, and wellness initiatives

Our Background:

Argo AI was founded in late 2016 by industry experts with extensive experience building robotic systems for commercial applications. Our once-small team has since grown into an over 1,000-person strong company with strategic partnerships with two of the world’s leading automakers: Ford and Volkswagen. Our self-driving system is the first with commercial deployment plans for Europe and the U.S., and thanks to an ability to tap into both automakers’ global reach, our technology platform has the largest geographic deployment potential of any self-driving technology to date.

 At Argo AI, we believe that embracing differences delivers superior results. We are an equal opportunity employer that is committed to an inclusive environment for all employees.
