Company Overview

Come join a higher calling and find a deeper purpose!   

TuSimple is a fully commercialized autonomous trucking company.   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 live fleet of autonomous Trucks have fully evolved land freight.    TuSimple is leading the way by hiring the most talented researchers, engineers, and scientists.  

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 has created the first commercially viable Autonomous Freight Network.
