Overland AI builds intelligent uncrewed ground systems for defense and national security. Our autonomy stack, OverDrive, is defining the state-of-the-art for perception, planning, and control of uncrewed vehicles, enabling them to traverse and operate in any terrain, regardless of roads, in any condition. OverDrive was purpose-built for the warfighter. Through our work with DARPA and the U.S. Army, we are developing the intelligent capabilities necessary to power modern ground operations, now and for decades to come. 

In a little over a year, the company has been selected for or awarded eight-figures of OTAs and other contracts across multiple services and DoD customers. We have raised over $10M in funding, led by a top multi-billion dollar AUM defense tech investor. 

We are looking for perception experts to join our team to advance the state of off-road autonomy.

Remote candidates able to work during Pacific Time Zone business hours will be considered.

In this role, you will:

  • Design, prototype, and deploy perception/deep learning algorithms (e.g., object detection and tracking, semantic segmentation, visual odometry) that run real-time on our autonomous vehicles.
  • Identify, implement, and respond to meaningful metrics that affect vehicle behavior.
  • Support experimentation and integration of the perception stack with new sensors and configurations (C++).
  • Collaborate closely with experts across disciplines to work across the entire stack to improve the reliability and performance of the system.


  • BS/MS/PhD in Computer Science or similar and 2+ years of experience (industry or academia) implementing perception algorithms on a robot with at least one lidar and camera.
  • Expert in ROS 2 or other similar robotics middleware.
  • Strong C++ skills and experience in a deep learning framework such as Pytorch, JAX, Tensorflow, etc.
  • You excel in a small-team atmosphere, taking ownership of problems and working with your colleagues to solve problems across disciplines. 
  • Ability to obtain and maintain a DOD Security Clearance.


Overland AI believes in creating a work environment that you look forward to embracing every day.
