CARMERA’s mission is to deliver safe autonomy and mobility for all. To deliver on our mission, we need to capture street-level changes on a massive scale using vehicular crowdsourcing and remote optical and telemetry sensing.

The Platform team is CARMERA's most cross-functional team. We build tools used by every team and support infrastructure that multiple downstream products depend on, so it’s crucial that we have a deep understanding of our organization’s interconnected cloud and remote platforms. Developers on the Platform team are expected to collaborate with engineers across products and build iteratively, even before the perfect, well-defined solution reveals itself. We are energized by novel problems that require innovative solutions in a collaborative environment.

To meet the needs of our rapidly-expanding fleet, our team is seeking to add an Android Engineer. Your first contributions will be towards supporting firmware stability and furthering work on edge-based object detection and localization. Working at the top of the funnel means that your work will have immediate, visible impact across our entire organization while still providing ample opportunities to learn and work on a variety of exciting projects along the way.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Design and implement diagnostic systems for field-deployed, Android Sensors.
  • Develop and design features for our field-deployed Android Sensors.
  • Work with vehicular-generated, real-time sensor data.
  • Further enable Machine Learning on the edge.

To be considered for this role, a candidate should meet all of the following:

  • You are an Explorer; always learning, adapting and directly engaging with evolving challenges with grace, positivity and a collaborative attitude.
  • You have at least 1 year of industry experience and have either published your own Android app or are currently contributing to an Android product (Java or Kotlin).

  • You have high adaptability and flexibility -- you can work cross-functionally, and manage deadline pressure, ambiguity, and change.
  • You feel energized by a fast-paced startup environment where project priorities can change frequently, requirements can be fuzzy and iteration is a must.

  • You have experience with mobile platforms.
  • You have geospatial or mapping experience.
  • You have a deeper understanding of the Android Operating System.
  • You have experience building software in Python.
