  • Experience writing production code in Python or C++
  • Experience designing and deploying complex systems
  • BS, MS or PhD in CS, Math, Physics, or equivalent real-world experience
  • Passion for self-driving technology and its potential impact on the world
  • Attention to detail and a passion for correctness

Bonus points!

  • Experience with ROS, path-planning or controls theory
  • Experience working with Docker development and deployment workflows
  • Experience installing, configuring, and managing AWS or on-premises server infrastructure
