Here are the kinds of skills we're looking for:

  • Fast learner. We're looking for engineers who flourish by applying their knowledge, learning new technologies and don't believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. You should be able to adapt easily to meet the rapid pace of a rapidly evolving research, development, and testing environment. You have advanced knowledge in hardware design and eagerness to learn techniques in the fields of computer vision, machine learning, planning, control, and sensors.
  • Fearlessness. You think a working proof-of-concept is the best way to make a point. You strive on validating that speed and quality are not conflicting; that you can achieve both at the same time.
  • Versatility. In addition to having an intimate knowledge of core engineering fields, you understand how all the pieces fit together into integrated systems, and how they impact performance.
  • Passion. You feel ownership over everything you ship; you'd never consider a design "released" until you're confident it's correct. You pride yourself on strong documentation.
  • A team player. You believe that you can achieve more on a team — that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. You rely on others' candid feedback for continuous improvement.
  • Design and an eye for business. You understand requirements beyond the written word and how your technical contributions will influence the viability of future products. Whether you're working on a software tool, a sensor to be retrofitted on a test vehicle, or a printed circuit to be mass produced, the other members of the team can depend on the quality of your work to rapidly advance our goals.
