We’re Cruise, the self-driving ride-hailing service.

We are building the world’s most advanced self-driving vehicles to safely connect people to the places, things, and experiences they care about. We believe self-driving vehicles  will help save lives, reshape cities, give back 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.

Cruise drives thousands of autonomous miles in the streets of San Francisco every week while our self driving stack is constantly evolving as we learn more about driving challenges. Given the rapid improvements in our stack, we realized that the challenge of testing an autonomous car is as challenging as building one. 

Our Software Engineers working on Perception Quality are in charge of developing cutting edge methods to evaluate Autonomous Vehicle behavior. They own and build statistical tools that allow us to predict the behavior of Cruise in the next Release using a variety of simulation frameworks and on-road data. We drive programs across cross-functional stakeholders in engineering, data science, machine learning platform, and design to develop market-leading autonomous software evaluation strategy and repeatable testing workflows across Cruise AI.
