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:

The Overwatch team at Argo is responsible for building cloud microservices and their underlying framework to manage and monitor fleets of self-driving vehicles. That includes the ability to visualize all autonomous vehicles on a map, initiate ride requests per vehicle, track critical vehicle metrics and expose all this functionality as partner-facing API’s. We base this functionality on common services and frameworks that could be utilized by all of our cloud-based microservices for enhanced debuggability and productivity. This includes consistent logging, distributed tracing, rate limiting, authentication etc.  

What you’ll do:

  • Develop services with a multi-region strategy deployed on AWS to achieve 99.99+ availability
  • Build custom infrastructure to communicate efficiently to Autonomous Vehicles
  • Build and advocate common services / frameworks for use across multiple teams
  • Work with autonomous vehicle infrastructure, operations, and partner teams to build tooling that results in a great customer experience
  • Automate infrastructure to test, validate, and graduate product releases using Jenkins, Terraform, and Kubernetes
  • Implement strong product quality, performance, and security practices
  • Design Argo partner-facing APIs to communicate mapping, routing, and tracking data between autonomous vehicles and the cloud
  • Work with route planning teams to build tools to optimize route selection for a fleet of autonomous vehicles on Argo partner networks by taking vehicle capabilities, ETA predictions and operational constraints into account
  • Build multi-regional highly available highly scalable services in the cloud
  • Develop services in Java/Kotlin
  • Support the development of web-based tooling using React/Typescript
  • Integrate cloud services with autonomous vehicles with a strong focus on security
  • Potentially develop on-vehicle software in C++ when the need arises

What you'll need to succeed:

  • Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field
  • Experience in building web-scale distributed systems, ideally heavily utilizing open-source software components
  • Strong software skills in Kotlin, Java or C++
  • Experience deploying/managing infrastructure in public cloud environments such as AWS or GCP

  • Experience building and maintaining REST or gRPC APIs with scalable Auth strategies
  • Experience with Docker, Kubernetes or Istio
  • Previous experience working in an agile software environment
  • Belief in rigorous, high-quality engineering that produces tangible results quickly
  • Excellent communication skills are required given our distributed and diverse team

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

  • 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.
