  • Aspects of the autonomous driving problem of interest include action and motion planning under uncertainty with other adversarial and cooperative agents, mapping, localization, perception, control, and simulation.
  • Solving complex real-world challenges in creative, effective and efficient ways
  • Developing robust and real-time autonomous driving (AD) solutions integrating multiple sensing devices
  • Prototyping hardware and software solutions for real-time AD applications
  • Working closely with the engineering team to integrate AD solutions for autonomous driving systems.
  • Developing robust software and comprehensive testing protocol for all projects
  • Communicating and coordinating with relevant engineering, operation and product teams during all phases of technology development and technology deployment
  • Directly influence the vision and objectives for your team's work in alignment with business and market needs.

Collaborative Working Relationships

  • Work collaboratively with the local advanced engineering team(s)
  • Work with the regional teams around the globe to gain understanding and get questions answered

Key Tasks

  • Technical contribution to projects in Advanced Engineering (AE) department
  • Support sales teams for OEM meetings on technical issues

Experience Level

  • 3+ years of industrial experience

Educational Requirement

  • MS (PhD is plus) in Computer Science or equivalent with a focus on artificial intelligence and/or autonomous driving technology
  • Deep expertise in one or more areas of Decision Making, Motion Planning, Localization, Activity Detection and Recognition
  • Ability to handle and solve complex issues in systematic and creative ways      

Additional Experiences

  • Experience developing software solutions in automotive or robotics for commercial or industrial applications.
  • Deep knowledge and experience with a wide variety of sensors
  • Strong experience with software development processes including automated build and test in a test-driven development environment
  • Proven record of innovation and delivery of results to solve real-world problems
  • Extensive experience in developing real-time perception-based motion planning systems for autonomy, especially experiences in developing autonomous ground vehicles or autonomous aerial vehicles (i.e. drones).

Required Skills

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Prefer deep expertise in autonomous driving technology including publications in referred journals and conferences
  • Deep understanding and hands-on knowledge of traditional AI methods and Deep Learning / Reinforcement Learning and their applications to autonomous driving systems.

Travel Requirements

  • Travel up to 15% of the time including domestic and international travel for training and coordination


  • Achievement, Monitoring & Feedback, Product & Process Understanding
  • Problem Solving, Project Management
