The goal is to accurately predict how code changes can generate better on-road driving results, all without driving the actual miles. In this role, you will utilize big data (gathering, synthesis, and analysis), automation, simulation strategies, statistics, and experimentation. You will be working with various teams developing autonomous driving technology, where Replay Simulation plays a critical role. If you're looking for an opportunity with direct impact on the delivery of simulation technology for self-driving vehicles, join us!
