  • Design and develop objective log-based analysis to evaluate the Motion Planning & Controls optimization solver
    performance, including simulation, re-simulation through to on-vehicle testing;
  • Manage and improve data pipelines to gather metrics on an ongoing basis; Document and share metrics with the
    organization for wider visibility and adoption;
  • Work with platform teams to ensure capabilities align with Motion Planning & Controls needs;
  • Design state-of-the art optimization algorithms suitable for in-vehicle operation;
  • Design state-of-the art optimization algorithms suitable for in-vehicle operation;
  • Implement well-tested algorithms meeting well defined performance requirements;
  • Propose changes to optimization problem formulation to gain speed and robustness improvements during solve; and
  • Participate in the software review process, helping other engineers to make high quality contributions.

What you'll need to succeed:

  • Master of Science degree or foreign equivalent in Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical
    Engineering, Computer Science, Robotics or a related field of study, together with two (2) years of experience in a

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.
