ClearMotion is launching a groundbreaking new technology for the automotive industry – a high bandwidth active suspension system. Our advanced engineering team is working on cutting-edge technology – tackling everything from motion sickness mitigation in autonomous vehicles to road surface classification and more. 
 
Summary
 
We’re looking for a talented software engineer to work on a breakthrough active suspension system for cars. You will be part of the advanced engineering group, focused on improving ride comfort and safety by using data crowdsourced from ClearMotion vehicles. 
 
You’ll be working on our backend system that powers RoadMotion, ClearMotion’s cloud-connected software product. You’ll touch everything from backend server development + optimization, architecture + scaling, database optimization + management, mapping + localization (algorithm development), and more. You’ll be a critical player in helping productionize and future-proof our current backend architecture, and will be a key member in taking RoadMotion to the next level.
 
The successful candidate will be a passionate, confident, organized and driven team player. We’re looking for people who have a strong interest in building and scaling out successful products and systems. The ideal candidate would be interested in learning new technologies and languages, and would willing to do whatever it takes (within reason) to help get the job done!   
 
Essential Qualifications/Functions
 
  • Previous experience with Javascript (node.js), Python (nice to have: experience using common data science libraries such as numpy, scipy, skLearn, pandas, etc) – or exceptional ability to learn new languages and frameworks.
  • Solid knowledge of databases (NoSQL), distributed systems, microservices, network optimizations, etc.
  • Previous experience w/ architecting + scaling backend systems (load balancing, autoscaling, Docker/Kubernetes type approaches)
  • Create workflows and pipelines for integrating machine learning models in our existing backend infrastructure.
  • Experience building and running RESTful web services on cloud platforms (Azure, AWS).
  • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools (git)
  • Contribute to strategy/algorithm design reviews with team members.
  • Can help lead projects from ideation to execution (semi-autonomous).
 
Bonus Points!
 
If you don’t have every qualification below – don’t worry! We’re not expecting that! We’re looking for people who understand the goals/objectives of what we’re trying to achieve and have an attitude of “I’ll learn whatever I can to help get the job done!”
 
  • Previous experience w/ mapping + geospatial/GIS technologies (i.e OpenStreetMap, map matching algorithms, geospatial searching, map geometry, etc)
  • Machine learning experience – (specifically w/ LSTMs, RNNs, CNNs). Big plus for previous time series analysis work.
  • Familiarity w/ mapping + localization (i.e SLAM, Inertial Navigation), and general intuition/knowledge on how autonomous cars work + common problems.
  • General understanding of how common automotive sensors work. (GPS, accelerometers, wheel encoder sensors, IMUs/gyros, etc)
  • Strong math & stats background.
  • Interest in automotive + autonomy! (If you’re not – don’t worry, we hope you will be soon after working here )
 
Benefits
 
  • Work in a small, highly focused team with strong leadership support.
  • Meaningful work creating a train-like, magic carpet experience in vehicles. Enables huge increases in comfort, safety, and handling in passenger vehicles. Dramatic implications for increasing productivity in autonomous cars and for reducing motion sickness! (Once you get a demo – you’ll never want to go back in a normal car!)
  • Competitive salary + benefits!
  • Unlimited vacation + sick time off (yes – people actually go on vacation regularly here)
  • Chef Reuben + Adam’s lunch every day + unlimited snacks/drinks/breakfast items. (all free!)
  • Flexible hours. We care about work output – not time spent in the office! (We prefer that you’re here in-person as much as possible though as there’s a lot of vehicle-level testing + multi-function team discussions. Remote work okay when applicable to the task you’re working on!)
  • 100% premium paid PPO & HMO healthcare insurance options + eye + dental

If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
