The Robotics Infrastructure team is accelerating autonomy algorithm performance at Motional. We utilize parallel programming techniques and general purpose GPU compute (GPGPU) to dramatically speed up autonomy algorithms. We build libraries and frameworks to help our autonomy team customers take full advantage of high performance computing (HPC). We are looking for candidates with high proficiency in C++, who have experience with HPC APIs (CUDA, OpenCL, OpenMP), and have strong cross-team communication skills.
The Motional Pittsburgh office is located in the new Hazelwood Green development at 4734 Second Avenue, a culmination of the city’s goal of restoring an economic driver to the neighborhood in a thoughtful, inclusive, and sustainable way. With views along the Monongahela river, the Pittsburgh office is in the heart of this new state of the art development.
