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.

A subgroup within VTT is responsible for the software infrastructure that controls and monitors jobs as well as defining the interfaces used to integrate with a multitude of cloud services. In your role as a Software Engineer in this area, you will get to work with C++, Python, Java, Kubernetes, Docker, cloud frameworks, and Linux. Our team is impactful and high-leverage: we make the entire team and broader organisation more productive. 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 in the simulation software to the scalable execution 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
  • Create observability systems that support large scale simulations

What you'll need to succeed:

  • Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field 
  • Professional experience in at least one of C++, Python
  • A passion for large scale, data intensive systems, efficiency, and reliability
  • Solid software engineering fundamentals and strong communication
  • 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

Nice to haves:

  • You are enthused by software quality (unit testing and test-automation)
  • You are familiar with cloud infrastructure (AWS, GCP, Azure, Kubernetes, Docker)
  • Experience using AWS S3, EC2, RDS and VPC (or equivalents in GCP and Azure)
  • Experience with GPU cloud computing
  • Experience with simulation: AV log services, Simulation batch processing, and simulation metrics
  • Experience in OS (Linux) kernel and/or drivers
  • Experience with Java, Starlark, and/or Golang
  • Experience with build systems, such as Bazel, and familiarity with CI systems, such as Jenkins

What we offer you:

  • High-quality individual and family medical, dental, and vision insurance
  • Competitive compensation packages
  • Employer-matched 401(k) retirement plan with immediate vesting
  • Employer-paid group term life insurance and the option to elect voluntary life insurance 
  • Paid parental leave 
  • Paid medical leave
  • Unlimited vacation
  • Complimentary daily lunches, beverages, and snacks
  • Pre-tax commuter benefits
  • Monthly wellness stipend 
  • Professional development reimbursement
  • Employee assistance program
  • Discounted programs that include legal services, identity theft protection, pet insurance, and more
  • Company and team bonding outlets: employee resource groups, quarterly team activity stipend, and wellness initiatives
