We are currently looking for experienced ML engineers to join our Mountain View office to develop algorithms and pipelines for DiDi’s autonomous driving projects. This position involves researching, development & engineering of advanced machine learning techniques into motion planning stack. These algorithms will be applied on our autonomous vehicles, and further deployed in DiDi’s ride sharing network. 


  • Research and prototype state-of-the-art ML technologies for motion planning.
  • Turn prototypes into real-time performance-guaranteed on-board software via rigorous engineering efforts.
  • Develop machine learning infrastructure for scalable learning-based planning algorithms.
  • Research and survey the current trends in machine learning approaches to motion planning



  • Master or PhD degrees in Computer Science, Robotics or related disciplines
  • Solid programming and high working proficiency in C++ and/or Python.
  • 3 years of related working experience.
  • Clear communication and a strong desire to be a part of a highly collaborative and rapidly growing team.



  • Experience in the field of machine learning for robotics planning and control 
  • Experience with algorithms that use causal reasoning, sequential decision making, inverse reinforcement learning and GAIL 



About the Company:

Didi Chuxing (“DiDi”) is the world’s leading mobile transportation platform. We’re committed to working with communities and partners to solve the world’s transportation, environmental, and employment challenges by using big data-driven deep-learning algorithms that optimize resource allocation.

Didi Chuxing’s Autonomous-Driving team was established in 2016, and has grown to a comprehensive research and development organization covering HD mapping, perception, behavior prediction, planning and control, infrastructure and simulation, labeling, hardware, mechanical, problem diagnosis, vehicle modifications, connected car, and security, among others. We’re developing and testing self-driving vehicles in China and the United States.

In August 2019, DiDi upgraded its autonomous driving unit to an independent company to focus on R&D, product application, and business development related to self-driving technologies. The new company will integrate the resources and technology of DiDi’s platform, continue to increase investment in R&D, and deepen collaboration with auto industry partners.
