Company: Argo AI GmbH

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:

Our team delivers solutions to support machine learning infrastructure for camera-based perception on the autonomous vehicle platform. The detection team develops deep learning models and algorithms to perceive all objects in the world, which is key to obstacle avoidance, prediction of actor behavior, and planning the motion of the vehicle itself. Metrics and resimulation - the capability to replay the latest perception models on previously recorded sensor data - play a key role to drive the success of our team.

Working on metrics and tooling, you'll play a key role in helping this team be its best. You'll use your creativity and initiative to come up with better ways to quantify vehicle and detection performance, deliver key information, eliminate bottlenecks, automate tedious tasks, and help our team continually improve.

The detection team is distributed across Palo, Alto, Munich, and Pittsburgh and all team members work very closely with each other. We are open to remote work under the right circumstances and have a number of team members who currently work remotely.

What you’ll do: 

  • Design, implement, and deliver metrics in Python, C++, and SQL that help inform and guide development of the system
  • Build great visual tools and data visualizations for metrics
  • Support our resimulation modules that emulate the onboard performance of our models
  • Understand and help quantify the performance of the vehicle, especially in the area of detection
  • Collaborate closely with your detection teammates to understand their workflows and how they can be improved
  • Work in cooperation with other teams at Argo to use and improve common infrastructure

What you'll need to succeed:

  • Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field.
  • Ability to understand various detection concepts, i.e. machine learning, object detection, object classification, object representation. However, you are not required to be an expert in those domains.
  • 2+ years C++ experience.
  • 2+ years Python experience.
  • Strong technical communication skills.
  • Ability to design and deliver production quality software independently while incorporating advice given from review.

Nice to haves (optional):

  • Masters or PhD in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field.
  • Experience with machine learning at scale.
  • Experience working with SQL and Business Intelligence tools like Looker, Qlik, or Tableau.
  • C++ experience.
  • Robotics experience.
  • AWS and/or GCP experience.

What we offer you:

  • Competitive compensation packages
  • 30 vacation days
  • Subsidized daily lunches, beverages, and snacks
  • Professional development reimbursement
  • Global Employee assistance program (Offerings include: work-life balance support, mindfulness programs, life coaching, new parent coaching, and more!)
  • Local and global discount programs
  • Company and team bonding outlets: employee resource groups, quarterly team activity stipend, and wellness initiatives

Our Background:

Argo AI was founded in 2016 by industry experts with extensive experience building robotic systems for commercial applications. Our once-small team has since grown into an over 1,700-person strong company with strategic partnerships with some of the world’s leading consumer brands. With global headquarters in Pittsburgh, we operate in eight cities across the U.S. and Germany in areas where self-driving technology can have the biggest impact on improving safety, traffic, and transportation equity.

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.
