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:

At Argo AI, virtual world testing is a core part of daily life and runs at a massive scale. The Virtual Test Tools (VTT) team is responsible for building the core software infrastructure that makes simulation and resimulation centric testing possible. We own the challenge of creating complex, best-in-class systems that allow stakeholders from Systems Engineering, Safety Engineering, Software Development, Test, and Verification to specify and run the test scenarios they need, plus the core software infrastructure that enables our users to test for system robustness in the presence of errors and degradations.

This position is part of the team within VTT responsible for the simulated orchestration of the various tasks such as motion planning, trajectory, and detection that run on-board the autonomous vehicle.  In this role, you will have visibility into every other engineering team and their systems as you work with those teams to integrate their systems into the virtual test infrastructure. 

What you’ll do: 

  • Work on a wide variety of challenging topics, from the integration of the in-car components into simulation software designed to scale on the cloud
  • Develop tools that other engineers in the company use on a daily basis to validate their code
  • Focus on the safety evaluation of the car software, which is critical for the product launch
  • Build test frameworks that validate the car software for a variety of scenarios and fault mechanisms
  • Contribute to our build/test/CI/CD system, the largest distributed system at Argo AI

What you'll need to succeed:

  • Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field
  • Professional experience in C/C++
  • A passion for large scale, data intensive systems, efficiency, and reliability
  • Solid software engineering fundamentals 
  • Experience developing and testing multi-process, multi-threaded systems, and multi-process communication 
  • Experience developing, testing or validating high-performance complex systems, preferably those that include hardware and software components
  • Strong problem-solving abilities - able to formulate solutions quickly and articulate them clearly
  • Exceptional teamwork and communication skills
  • Ability to work effectively in a fast-paced environment - consistently delivers excellent results and high output rates 
  • Passion for software quality (unit testing and test-automation)

Nice to haves:

  • Experience with simulation: AV log services, Simulation batch processing, and simulation metrics
  • Experience in OS (Linux) kernel and/or drivers
  • Experience with an RTOS and scheduling issues
  • Experience with load balancing between CPU and GPU
  • Experience with build systems, such as Bazel, and familiarity with CI systems, such as Jenkins.
  • Familiarity with cloud infrastructure (AWS, GCP, Azure, Kubernetes, Docker)

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.
