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.
Autonomous Driving Research Engineer – Perception
We are currently looking for experienced software engineers 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. Here you will be responsible for developing state of the art algorithms for perception. These algorithms will be applied on real vehicles to be deployed in DiDi’s network.
- Develop and deploy perception algorithms including object segmentation, recognition and tracking in smart driving scenarios.
- Survey and research for state of the art algorithms and publications in the computer vision, machine learning, and robotics sectors.
- Contribute to DiDi’s intellectual property through patents.
- Bachelors or master degree in Computer Science or related disciplines.
- Solid programming and proficient in C++ and/or Python.
- 3 years of industrial working experience or equivalence.
- Clear in communication and easy to collaborate in a growing team.
- Masters or Ph.D. degree in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering or a related field with a focus in computer vision, robotics, machine learning, artificial intelligence.
- Experience and deep understanding with one of the following domains is a plus:
- GPU, QT or OpenGL programming.
- Machine learning related projects, particularly deep learning related projects such as object recognition, segmentation etc.
