We’re Cruise, the self-driving ride-hailing service.
We are building the world’s most advanced, all-electric, self-driving cars to safely connect people to the places, things, and experiences they care about. We believe self-driving cars will help save lives, reimagine cities, redefine time in transit, and restore freedom of movement for many.
At Cruise, our engineers have opportunities to grow and develop while learning from leaders at the cutting-edge of their fields. With a culture of internal mobility, there's opportunity to thrive in a variety of disciplines. This is a place for dreamers and doers to succeed.
If you are looking to solve one of today’s most complex engineering challenges, see the results of your work in hundreds of self-driving cars, and make a positive impact in the world starting in our cities, join us.
About the role:
The Autonomous Vehicle (AV) software stack heavily relies on machine learning. Throughout the lifecycle of each machine learning model, skilled ML engineers work closely to design, build, train, and deploy machine learning models into our unique AV systems. In this position, you will work closely with machine learning engineers from different AV Engineering teams (e.g. Computer Vision, Prediction), covering different algorithms across the AV software stack. If you're interested in solving some of the most exciting machine learning problems in the industry, then chat with us!
- Research, design, and develop new machine learning solutions and algorithms.
- Drive high level algorithm decisions to ensure fast and accurate machine learning in a multitude of different applications
- Deploy scalable and robust software for executing ML inferences on the car
- Implement cutting edge machine learning techniques in object classification, labelling, pose estimation, and prediction
- Use real-time state estimation and context from surroundings to predict the motion of surrounding vehicles and pedestrians for use with vehicle path planning
- Work on data association, clustering, segmentation, filtering, and estimation
- Create unified back end architecture for solving multiple ML problems
- Build robust, reliable systems to handle common and uncommon situations on the road
- Become a subject matter expert in various parts of the AV stack
You should apply for this role if you have the following qualifications:
- MS, or higher degree, in CS/CE/EE, or equivalent in industry experience
