Job Description

The Labeling Team is in charge of creating high quality datasets that are used by autonomy teams to improve the driverless car experience. We categorize and annotate camera imagery, LiDAR point clouds and other datatypes to feed machine learning systems for our AV detection systems.

Time is generally split between a local production team and a remote team in India and varies role to role.

We are looking for Project Specialists to join our Label Production Team to drive process improvements that facilitate scaling our org and are generally excited about operational excellence. In addition to being a pro communicator with a love of efficiency, ideal candidates should have a proven ability to solve problems creatively, are systems-oriented thinkers and not shy away from calling for big changes when the moment is right. Time will be split between focus area responsibilities (policy/workflow, training, user testing and data analytics), leadership responsibilities and label production responsibilities.
