Company Overview

Come join a higher calling and find a deeper purpose!   

As a multi-national Artificial Intelligence Technology Company, we are at the epicenter of the Autonomous Vehicle Universe. Our breakthroughs are leading the industry in autonomous trucking.  

While inventing the framework of Autonomous Driving, our current fleet of autonomous Trucks are helping communities receive much-needed supplies and medical equipment around the clock.   Our people are some of the most talented engineers and contributors who are leaving behind a historic legacy.  

TuSimple was founded half a decade ago with the goal of bringing the top minds in the world together to achieve the dream of a driverless truck solution. With a foundation in computer vision, algorithms, mapping, and Artificial Intelligence, TuSimple is working to create the first global commercially viable Autonomous Freight Network. 

Job Description

The ML Infrastructure team’s mission is to provide reliable, scalable and self-improving machine learning platform solutions to support the development of critical vehicle systems. As a Senior Software Engineer, Machine Learning Infrastructure, you will work alongside some of the brightest minds in the world to address unsolved problems on the bleeding edge of applied AI research. You will build hardened, highly available and fault-tolerant full-stack systems to support, challenge and improve critical AI modules in on-vehicle perception. This will include: 

  • Creating and maintaining cloud-based distributed algorithm training environments in a way that is maintainable, scalable and cost effective;
  • Creating and maintaining scalable full-stack solutions for the versioning and retrieval of models, training data, benchmarks, and challenge datasets;
  • Creating automated AI tools that will push our critical autonomous systems to the next level, as they stress-test safety, reliability and consistency across real-world scenarios.

This role is a unique opportunity to parlay your back-end software engineering talents into substantial machine learning and AI experience, working on uncharted real-world problems that will not simply “disrupt” the world of posting cat pictures online, but actually change the transportation industry forever. 

Visa sponsorship is available for this position.
