Who are we? 

Wayve is a London start-up on a mission to reimagine autonomous mobility through embodied intelligence. We are the first to deploy autonomous vehicles on public roads using deep learning. We are pioneering the AI software, lean hardware and fleet learning platform for AV 2.0: a next generation autonomous driving system that can quickly and safely adapt to new driving domains anywhere in the world. 

To reimagine a new approach we know we need to rethink how to build a new kind of tech company. So from the very first day we built a culture with intention and a world class team that brings together people from all walks of life, who align strongly with our value and want to change the world.

Where you'll have an impact 

We’re looking for bold, talented and creative people to join our journey in developing next-generation autonomous vehicles. We’re a growing start-up, building our first cohort of engineers and you can be at the heart of this!

We are looking for Procedural Engineers to help build rich, varied virtual worlds to contribute to the development of autonomous driving. You’ll be working closely with our Simulation team to create flexible procedural systems to generate a huge range of worlds that emulate the variety and complexity of real world driving environments. We will use these worlds to put our AI drivers to the test, to improve their performance and ensure they’re safe to go out on the road. 

What you’ll bring to Wayve

  • Ability to represent the real world - objects, systems and processes, in software.
  • Experience with creating procedural content in Houdini or similar tools.
  • Experience with Houdini VEX and Python.
  • Ability to learn quickly and willingness to try new approaches.
  • Knowledge of software engineering principles - what makes code reusable and extensible
  • Some exposure to game and graphics engines such as Unreal or Unity3D is a bonus
  • Some exposure to machine learning is a bonus

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. If your role is possible to do remotely 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 on people and their differences gives us strength. We are proud to be an equal opportunities workplace and encourage people from all walks of life to join our journey, growing and expanding with us. We don't just embrace diversity, we encourage it.
