DevOps Engineer

Menlo Park, CA
Full Time
Helm is an early stage autonomous vehicle startup currently in stealth. Our deep learning approach to self-driving is uniquely data- and capital-efficient, allowing us to get to market quickly. Our team consists of researchers from top schools like Harvard, MIT, Stanford, and Caltech and engineers from companies like Google, Stripe, Quora, and more.

Our software is already available as an SDK, which has been purchased or deployed by 6 of the top 10 car manufacturers in the world. While our technology is being scaled to solve all of the subtasks and corner cases needed for L4 deployment, we market our software for partial autonomy in consumer vehicles. Helm's goal is to integrate the software you help build into millions of consumer vehicles in the coming years.

Sample footage from our L2+ system:


    • Manage cloud computing infrastructure for training, validation, and inference.
    • Work with software engineers to build tooling for automating cluster operations to maximum extent possible.
    • Be responsive with addressing issues with cluster. 
    • Manage local compute resources.
    • Manage company directory, Okta integrations, etc.
    • Provision hardware, debug issues with local software integrations.
    • Ensure security best practices are followed both on cloud and local compute resources.
