You&rsquo;ll interface closely with the Detection, Prediction and&nbsp;Planning teams as you do so. The ideal candidate will have strong experience in machine learning for tracking and track classification for autonomous vehicles or related technology and will have a proven track record of being

Our backgrounds are diverse, but our team shares a love of the outdoors and a desire to protect it for future generations. 


    Role Summary

    In this position, you will be responsible for the development, testing, deployment and continuous improvement of our machine-learned model for Tracking and Track Classification.  As early member of our in-house ML tracking effort, you will be responsible for helping to set the technical direction including how we formulate the problem, the architectures used, and how we integrate it in the broader autonomy stack. You’ll interface closely with the Detection, Prediction and Planning teams as you do so. The ideal candidate will have strong experience in machine learning for tracking and track classification for autonomous vehicles or related technology and will have a proven track record of being able to deliver to production.

    • 5+ years of robotics, AV (Autonomous Vehicle), or other real-time, safety-critical experience  
    • BS, MS or PhD in Computer Science, Robotics, or other relevant Engineering disciplines.  
    • Recent, hands-on experience with state-of-the-art modeling for tracking and track classification including Transformers 
    • Ability to build solutions from first principles  
    • Strong software engineering experience in Python and/or C++ 
    • Experience building ML pipelines and managing data quality  
    • Effective communication and collaborative
