We are looking to add a highly talented Prediction and Behavior Modeling Software Engineer to help us build probabilistic models of the future state of the world. As a software engineer, you will help design, measure, test, and visualize the performance of motion prediction models that we use to improve our interactions with cars, pedestrians, and other road users. Your software engineering and data analytics experience will inform your pragmatic approach to making a more intelligent autonomous vehicle. Does this sound like you?

What you'll be doing:
  • Dive into data to understand behaviors of external world actors such as cars, bikes, and pedestrians; leverage machine learning methods where appropriate
  • Help translate algorithms into production-level code
  • Help implement and evaluate a variety of ML models
  • Define, implement, and visualize performance metrics
  • Develop real-time visualizations of our estimates of the future state of the world

What we're looking for:

  • BS in computer science, engineering, or applied math with 7+ years practical experience in data science, modeling, statistics, and analysis of large data sets
  • Fluency with Python, including standard scientific computing libraries
  • Experience working with large data sets
  • Experience using modern software engineering tools (e.g., version control, CI)

Bonus points (not required):

  • Experience using common Machine Learning and Deep Learning algorithms (e.g., for classification, regression, and clustering)
  • Experience developing autonomous vehicles or robots
  • Experience with C++
