Voyage is delivering on the promise of self-driving cars.

Voyage has built the technology and services to bring autonomous transportation to those who need it most, beginning in retirement communities. Whether residents face mobility restrictions or just want to take a ride, Voyage takes pride in getting all our passengers to their destination safely, efficiently, and affordably. Our journey begins in calmer communities, but we won't stop until anyone, anywhere can summon a Voyage.

As an Embedded Software Engineer in the platform team, you will be owning both system design and implementation of safety-critical functions. This role requires programming for realtime environments such as microcontrollers and embedded Linux. As our first embedded engineer in the platform team, you’ll get to define best practices and recommend adequate tools and workflows to make your work more productive.


    • Contribute to all phases of the software development cycle including prototyping, requirements capture, design, implementation, and validation
    • Design, develop, and test embedded safety-critical algorithms and software for the Voyage vehicle
    • Create software requirements, design documentation, test plans, and other supporting documentation
    • Champion code-coverage and test-driven development as it relates to the embedded software context
    • Work cross-functionally with the Autonomy and Perception team to ensure the safety algorithms and software meet the high assurance requirements needed for autonomous driving
    • Contribute to failure and hazard analyses and implement safety mitigations in the control software
    • Contribute to Hardware-in-the-Loop software improvements for Continuous Integration and development


    • 3+ years of experience developing embedded software
    • Embedded C/C++ programming experience
    • Familiarity with microcontroller development including both low-level driver development and user application
