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. 

The  Simulation and Test Infrastructure team owns the platforms that facilitate the execution of autonomous vehicle simulation and testing. We efficiently and reliably provide simulation and test execution at scale.

The team is responsible for our simulation workload scheduler, which represents a large portion of Cruise’s compute consumption, and optimizing its efficiency.

We are looking for an experienced and highly-technical Engineering Manager to own this team’s roadmap, deliver high-quality and efficient systems, and support the growth and development of engineers on the team.
