Software Engineer - Prediction

Foster City, CA
Engineering – Software
In this role, you will help us build novel architectures for classifying and understanding the complex and dynamic environments in our cities. You will have access to the best sensor data in the world and an incredible infrastructure for testing, validating and deploying your algorithms.

The prediction team’s role is to provide a probabilistic representation of the future state of the world; in particular, understanding what other vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists will do next.  We leverage both high-quality sensor data and high-level semantic information to produce data-driven models of the future.  This representation is tightly integrated into our planning software to deliver a safe and smooth customer experience.
