About the Company

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: 

You will support the virtual testing of our autonomous trucks in a virtual testing environment. You will focus on the virtual verification and validation of the perception components of the autonomous driving system. In this role, you will be responsible for supporting our software, systems, and release teams in the execution of virtual testing of Torc’s software components and integrated autonomous driving systems. You will also provide support to Torc’s development and integration teams and be instrumental in growing the robustness and safety of our self-driving technology. 

  • Identify appropriate virtual testing technologies and methodologies for a given component or system-level testing effort
  • Identify appropriate verification and validation concepts and strategies for the perception components by end-to-end requirement based testing
  • Identify and document use cases and implement prototypes for each use case and assist with the transition and training of these cases to release teams and software development teams
  • Acknowledge testing gaps and derive requirements for new or improved test tools, simulation environments and test frameworks. 
  • Implement scaled virtual testing and test variation toolchains for individual and integrated software and system components 
  • Identify, troubleshoot, debug and resolve technical, configuration and integration issues  

What you’ll need to succeed: 

  • Master’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Robotics Engineering, Systems Engineering, or engineering equivalent 
  • 3+ years of software systems integration and testing experience
  • 3+ years of software development experience  
  • Full life cycle software development including unit and software integration testing and configuration management
  • Experience with virtual testing and simulation in the field of perception, sensors, and virtual environments
  • Programming experience in C++ and using Python for data analysis
  • Working knowledge of Test-Driven Development Methodology and test framework architectures 
  • Experience with software and system troubleshooting and problem-solving with specific focus on system-level analysis, fault isolation and identification
  • Proficiency with programming under Linux and Linux command line functions
  • Working knowledge of basic probability and linear algebra
  • Ability to lead virtual testing events within specific areas of system, tracing and troubleshooting the entire software stack
  • Experience reporting out to product and quality management on testing progress

Bonus Points! 

  • Software-in-the-Loop (SIL) simulation and testing methodologies 
  • Specific experience developing LIDAR, Radar, vision, and sensor simulations 
  • Automotive or similar test and validation experience
  • Experience with developing sensor models, traffic vehicle models, and vehicle dynamics models in a simulation environment  
  • ROS (Robot Operating System)
  • Kanban, Scrum or Scaled Agile development
  • Ability to mentor lower-level engineers

Voluntary Self-Identification

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
