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’re looking for an engineer experienced in embedded software design and development with a passion to develop the next generation of autonomous vehicles. You’ll be working as part of a team to design & develop radar sensors and to integrate them onto a vehicle platform.  You’ll be key to board bringup of the radar and be responsible for radar software, including the central MCU, all peripheral ICs, and drivers on the central computer.   

This full-cycle role will include initial requirements collection, component selection, design and analysis of alternatives, implementation, verification, and operational troubleshooting. You’ll be able to see your work deployed in the field to enable the next step forward in autonomous driving.

What you’ll bring to Wayve


  • Bachelor, Master or Doctorate of Science degree from an accredited course of study, in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics or chemistry
  • 3+ years experience C++ development experience in embedded systems

Desirable experience:

  • In-depth understanding of Embedded Systems and associated development and debugging tools (e.g., microcontroller cross-development in a Linux environment)
  • Experience bringing up and debugging new MCUs, peripherals, compilers, and development tools
  • Low-level software development experience, e.g. device drivers
  • Hands-on experience developing for real-time systems
  • Experience with common serial communications protocols like I2C & SPI 
  • Writing and reviewing design documentation

Desirable experience is not essential. The responsibilities of this role are varied and flexible; you will be supported to learn, develop and grow some of these skills as part of the role.

What we offer you

  • Competitive compensation with salary and equity
  • Immersion in a team of world-class researchers, engineers and entrepreneurs
  • A position to shape the future of autonomous driving and to tackle the biggest challenges of our time
  • Benefits such as an onsite chef, workplace nursery scheme, private health insurance, therapy, daily yoga, onsite bar, large social budgets, unlimited L&D requests, enhanced parental leave, and more!
  • This is a full-time role based in our office in King’s Cross, but we support flexible working, including working for up to 2 weeks from anywhere in the world. We trust you to know what works best for your team and projects and ask that you have a healthy presence that enables the right meetings to happen in person and strong relationships to be built.
Wayve is built by people from all walks of life. We believe that it is our differences that make us stronger, and our unique perspectives and backgrounds that allow us to build something different.
