We're the driverless car company.

We believe in improving people’s lives by making transportation safer, more accessible, and more convenient. We’re building the world’s most advanced software to fuel the driverless cars that safely connect people to the places, things, and experiences they care about.

We seek and embrace diversity in all of its forms. We continuously push ourselves to think differently and take ownership wherever it's needed. This is a place for dreamers and doers to succeed. If you share our passion for achieving what some say is impossible, join us.

About the role:

The Computer Vision team consists of two teams: Visual Environment & Visual Detection. The Visual Environment team applies computer vision techniques to problems that require spatial and temporal understanding of our surrounding, such as detecting flashing lights on emergency vehicle, traffic light and human controlling traffic. The team works closely with visual detection, tracking and planning teams. The Visual Detection team finds objects and properties of objects from the raw camera images. This runs the gamut from using convolutional neural networks to detect cars, bikes, pedestrians, debris, vegetation, construction, etc., using geometric information from the map and other sensors to enhance our understanding of these objects, and working with the sensor fusion teams to use our detections and aggregate them over time. We work tightly with the Lidar Segmentation, Visual Environment, and Tracking teams.
