Who are we?

Our team is the first in the world to use autonomous vehicles on public roads using end-to-end deep learning, computer vision and reinforcement learning. Leveraging our multi-national world-class research team, we’re focusing on using less data to learn more intelligent algorithms to bring autonomy for everyone, everywhere. We aim to be the future of self-driving cars, not vehicles that are told how to drive through hand-coded rules and maps, but ones which learn from experience and data.

Where you’ll have an impact

We are looking for an experienced engineer who’s lived at the forefront of compute platform development to drive the development of in-vehicle compute for the next generation of autonomous vehicles. You’ll be working with world-class machine learning and robotics teams to baseline what they are doing today and build a roadmap to grow compute performance with the advancements in the autonomous vehicle capability. You’ll also be working within the Hardware team to develop and field these systems in our next generation vehicle and be leading evaluation of the different processors and accelerators the market is bringing to meet these challenges.

What you’ll bring to Wayve


  • Experience profiling the performance of software stacks and working with software teams to project the performance growth needed.
  • Experience working between teams to develop the core requirements and architecture for compute platforms
  • Ability to evaluate performance of CPUs, GPUs, SOMs, and various machine learning accelerators and guide their adoption.
  • Ability to drive decision making across a broad group of internal and external stakeholders.
  • Collaboration skills with  external partners and suppliers to influence their product direction
  • Strong communication skills, with the ability to represent a broad range of tradeoffs and decisions to both working level teams and leadership.
