Meet the team:
At Argo AI, simulation based testing is a core part of daily life and runs at a massive scale. We in the Virtual Test Tools (VTT) team own this overall capability and are responsible for its design, implementation, and stability. We pride ourselves with providing best-in-class tooling and infrastructure to Systems Engineers, Autonomy Developers and Test and Verification Specialists. We collaborate with this diverse set of stakeholders, and play a central role in shaping Argo’s validation concept. Our products test the autonomy stack by enabling the replay and re-simulation of fleet logs, the injection of faults, the quick creation of scenarios, and the efficient running of simulations that are equipped with multi-fidelity models.
The ideal candidate has strong C++ software engineering skills and experience building scalable software. Practical examples include developing testing frameworks, testing infrastructure, distributed Real-Time Systems and Validation & Verification strategies.
What you’ll do:
- Design and implement actor models/behaviors, geometric/kinematic algorithms and 3D worlds to replicate real world traffic situations in simulation
- Contribute to the enhancement of our Software-in-the-Loop framework, simulation infrastructure and system monitoring
- Work with Simulation, Perception, Robotics and Infrastructure engineers to improve the accuracy of our simulation models
- Be the go-to technical point of contact for the critical parts of our core simulation infrastructure that you will own
- Work in a team of 20+ talented engineers located in Europe and in the United States
- Participate in architectural and design discussions, presenting proposals and recommendations to senior management
- Analyze the simulation results in cooperation with distributed teams
What you'll need to succeed:
- Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field
- 4+ years of experience developing with modern C++ and Python applications
- Experience working with POSIX compliant operating systems
- Desire to work collaboratively, rather than competitively
- A strong analytical problem solving mindset
