At Torc, we have always believed that autonomous vehicle technology will transform how we travel, move freight, and do business.
A leader in autonomous driving since 2007, Torc has spent over a decade commercializing our solutions with experienced partners. Now a part of the Daimler family, we are focused solely on developing software for automated trucks to transform how the world moves freight.
Join us and catapult your career with the company that helped pioneer autonomous technology, and the first AV software company with the vision to partner directly with a truck manufacturer.
What you'll do:
We are looking for a Software Engineering student to develop tools that enable map-based autonomous driving. As part of the mapping tools team, you will be able to design, implement, and improve algorithms used to create and manage map data as well as assess the health of maps. Moreover, you will be responsible for developing components to support on-vehicle software. It's preferred to work for at least one full semester. Candidate is expected to work 40 hours a week for the duration of their Co-op. Must be willing to be based locally in Blacksburg, VA for duration of Co-Op.
Analyze and develop the current map creation and maintenance algorithms, ensuring our self-driving vehicles have the most accurate maps, to drive safely and smoothly on the road.
Research the state-of-the-art mapping algorithms and apply excellent algorithm design and programming skills to improve our software.
Prototype and deploy robust and reliable solutions to map creation and maintenance problems.
Collaborate closely with a creative team of engineers and researchers.
Gain a deep understanding of not only the self-driving technology, but also its real-world challenges and how to convert such technology into real products.
What you'll need to succeed:
