About the Role

 

You will participate in the unique effort of bringing innovative state-of-the-art deep-learning models for self-driving into production, and onto autonomous vehicles. You will collaborate closely with a team of highly skilled researchers and engineers, tackling an array of challenges related to applying machine learning to self-driving vehicles. You will focus on building efficient and scalable data pre-processing and post-processing pipelines, as well as complex algorithmic manipulation of 2D and 3D sensor data, map data, and other data sources.

 

What You’ll Do

 

  • Design, develop, test, deploy, maintain & document innovative solutions for challenging problems with robust, scalable, reusable, efficient, production-quality software
  • Collaborate and communicate closely with researchers to identify, propose and build infrastructure, large-scale data pipelines, data storage strategy, common libraries and useful tools needed to manipulate data so as to create inputs for deep learning algorithms
  • Research and incorporate emerging software infrastructures, tools,  and technologies, especially pertaining to data processing
  • Usher and evangelize adoption of engineering best-practices and methodology

 

What You’ll Need

  • Minimum 3 years experience building production level software systems, preferably with Python and C++
  • Experience in architecting and building large-scale batch processing pipelines using Big Data tools such as Hadoop, Spark, Cassandra, etc.
  • Comfortable developing in a Linux environment
  • Demonstrable track-record of learning and deep-diving as needed into complex existing and new technologies
  • Intense sense of ownership, initiative-taking, and a can-do attitude
  • Great attention to detail and a data-driven approach to problem solving
  • Team-player with a strong collaboration and communication skills, who is able to motivate and mobilize cross-functional teams, and respond positively to feedback

 

Bonus Points If

  • Experience with 2D & 3D data, manipulating and transforming geometric data, computer graphics style image and data projections, graph-based algorithms
  • Knowledge of applied machine learning, and GPU processing in compute clusters
  • Familiarity with considerations related to sensor data (RGB, LiDAR) such as calibration, data capturing, noise sources, transformations, etc.

 

About the Team:

 

At Uber, we believe technology has the power to make transportation more efficient, accessible, and safer than ever before. Self-driving technology has the potential to make these benefits an everyday reality for our customers, but it’s not going to happen overnight.  Building best-in-class self-driving technology will take time, and safety is our priority every step of the way. Operating inclusively and transparently, while displaying responsible behavior in a structured development are critical to safety. We at ATG seek candidates who will role model these values.
