Who we are:

Argo AI is a global self-driving products and services company on a mission to make the world’s streets and roadways safe, accessible, and useful for all. Our technology is built to enable commercial services for autonomous delivery and ridesharing in cities. 

With experienced leaders in the field and collaborative partnerships with some of the world’s top consumer brands, we’re working block by block, city by city to empower people and businesses to be more successful. We’re individuals driven by strong values to solve complex problems together. Come join us to reimagine the human journey.

Meet the team:

The Motion Controls team at Argo is responsible for selecting steering / powertrain / brake requests in order to pilot the autonomous vehicle safely and comfortably to its destination. To do so, we build and maintain vehicle dynamics models and design algorithms to leverage these models for accurate vehicle planning and control. We split our time between designing/implementing algorithms and testing, experimenting and analyzing data. Our work is not done until it works in the car!

What you’ll do: 

  • Craft efficient and well tested software in C++ for the Motion Control of the autonomous vehicle
  • Evaluate feature performance in simulation, test vehicles and with an autonomous vehicle fleet
  • Design metrics to measure feature performance, implementing automated metric extraction utilizing Python and SQL
  • Collaborate broadly with motion planning, systems engineering, test engineering, fleet operations and vehicle platform OEMs to solve cross cutting problems

What you'll need to succeed:

  • Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field
  • Strong desire for candidates with hands on experience that have worked with real platforms and intimately understand the challenges of working with complex systems and have a quantitative/data driven approach to improve system performance
  • Experience working on collaborative software projects requiring software version control and a code review process
  • Strong software skills are required primarily in C++/Python or C/SQL. A willingness to gain stronger software engineering knowledge and deep expertise in C++ and/or python is required
