Foster City, CA /
Software – Perception /
Come and be part of a world-class perception team, and help us in our mission to ship a ground-up fully autonomous robot in dense urban environments. It is widely understood that one of the key unsolved problems to full autonomy is how to prove the robots are safe in all circumstances within certain operational design domains (ODD), and as a perception verification and validation engineer you will lead the effort in solving this puzzle. You can choose to work on one or more aspects such as developing validation strategies and metrics definitions using your statistical reasoning skills, designing complex systems for large-scale data mining to go through petabytes of data, and building up frontend interfaces for engineers and management to understand current progress and iterate.
