We are currently looking for 2020 summer interns to join our Mountain View office to develop algorithms and pipelines for DiDi projects in intelligent driving technologies. The goal is to apply the state of the art AI algorithms on cars to make driving smarter and safer.

The simulation team's work is critical to the success of the entire project: It speeds up development-verification cycles by enabling onboard module engineers to rapidly evaluate their changes and iterate. It ensures quality of software deployed on real-world autonomous vehicles to minimize safety risk. Also, comparing with real-road testing, simulation could expand testing coverage by orders of magnitude with only a fraction of the cost.

Although we have been making great progress, there are still many technical challenges ahead of us in this area. Your contribution could help to bring autonomous vehicles to DiDi's transportation network!

Responsibilities:

  • Develop simulator software which establishes execution environment for onboard algorithms, using real-world log data or virtually created environment. Ensure simulation is performant and deterministic.
  • Research and develop algorithms in multiple domains including sensor simulation, agent behavior and vehicle dynamics, in order to make simulation of the ego car and agents as realistic as possible.
  • Develop efficient scenario creation tools, including convenient ways to specify agents behavior and evaluation metrics, parameterized scenario generation, etc.
  • Develop highly-scalable framework to run and monitor huge amount of simulation jobs in the cloud.
  • Develop data processing and analytics platform to process simulation data, extract and visualize information. Collaborate with onboard engineering and triage teams to quantify, monitor and improve the performance and safety metrics using data science skills.
  • Develop CI/CD systems and workflows to integrate simulation into day-to-day development and software release processes.

Qualifications:

  • Pursuing Master degree or higher in Computer Science or related disciplines.
  • A solid foundation of data structures and algorithms.
  • Team player with good communication skills.
  • Attentive to detail and strive for engineering excellence.

Preferred:

  • Experience with C++ and/or Python.
  • Experience with simulation for autonomous vehicles.
  • Experience with game engine such as Unreal Engine.
  • Experience with cloud, big data and database, especially open source systems such as docker, various big names in the Apache project list, etc.
  • Experience with CI/CD systems.
  • Experience with graphics and rendering.

As a government contractor subject to Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Disabilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Autism
  • Cerebral palsy
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Schizophrenia
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Major depression
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
