We're looking for a Senior Software Engineer to design and develop the C++ software of our onboard lidar perception pipeline. The ideal candidate will be responsible for architecting an optimized software to fuse pointclouds coming from multiple lidars, preprocess the merged pointcloud going into our deep lidar CNNs like PointPillars, PointPainting, PolarStream and post-processing the outputs. Lidar perception is a safety critical system, and your work will be essential to ensuring that the software is well-designed, robust, efficient and correct. Your work will be at the heart of the entire AV system.
