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.

Opportunity Overview:

Tusimple is a self-driving technology company with a mission to bring automation to the trucking industry. System software engineers are critical to this mission by undertaking the responsibility of providing a robust and efficient framework to the intelligent autonomous driving components. This framework is of tremendous importance, as it dictates the overall throughput of the self-driving system, thus highly impacting responsiveness and accuracy.

Example projects we are working on include:

  • Design and implement scheduling policies for CPU/GPU tasks with prior knowledge of data flow dependencies in our system, such that our autonomous truck is more responsive;
  • Develop tools to intelligently analyze key performance metrics in our system to discover bottlenecks for optimization;
  • Data mining based on performance metrics collected, to design and implement a system for MRC (Minimum Risk Condition)

 Role Responsibilities:

  • Lead a team of engineers to work closely with peer teams in both engineering and algorithm departments to design, develop and refine software that are critical in terms of functionality and safety to our autonomous vehicles;
  • Actively seeking and discovering new pain points in our R&D pipeline and solve them by providing novel software solutions;
  • Identify, study and introduce latest technologies that will improve the performance of our autonomous driving software;
  • Grow the team by continuously recognizing and recruiting strong candidates on the job market;

 Experience & Skills Required:

  • At least 3 years of industrial experience as a software engineer, working on system design/implementation, performance optimization or related field;
  • Expert knowledge in C++/C/Java/Python
  • Hands-on experience with designing, developing, testing and maintaining large scale software (>= 20K lines), using productivity-boosting tools such as cmake, git, Jenkins, perf, valgrind, gdb.
  • Excellent vision in both business and technical perspective;
  • Ability to effectively and efficiently push forward projects that requirement collaboration among multiple teams and take ownership actively

 Preferred Skills and Experience:

  • Proven track records of >= 1 year of experience, leading a engineering team as either a tech lead or manager;
  • In-depth understanding of Linux performance related topics: scheduling, memory management, IPC, and/or networks;
  • Experience working with autonomous vehicles and/or robotics;
  • Knowledge with the Robot Operating System (ROS2)
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced work environment and handle multiple tasks with seemingly conflicting priorities;

TuSimple benefits:

  • 100% employer-paid healthcare premiums for you and your family
  • Work visa sponsorship available
  • Relocation assistance available
  • Breakfast, lunch, and dinner served every day
  • Full kitchens on every floor with unlimited snacks, drinks, special treats, fruits, meals, and more
