Software Engineer (C++) - Visualization

Software Engineering – Simulation & Visualization
We are AID GmbH: 
AID-Autonomous Intelligent Driving is bringing together the world’s top software, roboticists and AI talent to ignite a human centered revolution in autonomous driving. By understanding the human challenges as well as the engineering ones, the technology we are testing today on the streets of Munich will become the backbone of a universal self-driving system – capable of improving life in urban environments for billions of people. With the agility of a start-up and the support of Audi (VW Group), AID is free to craft an autonomous world that works for everyone – from manufacturers to passengers to city planners to pedestrians. For us, the future isn’t about merely making vehicles more autonomous, it’s about making people more autonomous.

What does the team do?
As a member of our Visualization group, you will work in close partnership with all engineering teams to help design, implement, and maintain the virtual representation of how our system interprets it's environment. Solid visualization and debugging tools are vital to understanding what the sensors are "seeing", how well the intermediate stages of the Self Driving pipeline are performing, and for quickly finding problems. Our visualization tool is a vital part of our engineering infrastructure and real-time 3D visualization is considered a core competency, not an afterthought. As a member of the Visualization team, you will facilitate the development and testing of all Self Driving components as well as the base software platform, simulation, and replay capabilities. The Visualization team's customers are our developers, and as such, you'll get the chance to work with them and learn about every functional component of the SDS system.
