Waymo is the self-driving technology company with a mission to make it safe and easy for people and things to move around. Building on software and sensor technology developed at Google, Waymo is now launching the world’s first fully self-driving transportation service that will take members of the public from A to B at the touch of a button.

Software Engineering builds the brains of Waymo's fully self-driving vehicles. Our software allows our vehicles to perceive the world around them, make the right decision for every situation, and deliver people safely to their destinations.

We're looking for people interested to (1) develop robust solutions to real world problems and (2) help understand the next driving challenges by analyzing real-world logs collected on our state-of-the-art fleet.

In this planning and controls role, you’ll:

  • Grow a fundamental understanding of the next driving challenges by analyzing real-world logs collected on our state-of-the-art fleet
  • Develop computationally efficient decision-making systems for the self-driving vehicles, ensuring that the behavior of our vehicles is safe, smooth, and predictable to other road users.
  • Build robust solutions to cutting-edge driving problems
  • Improve how our vehicles act and react in complex and nuanced situations
  • Creatively and collaboratively build robust solutions to cutting-edge driving problems

We’d like you to have:

  • MS/PHD in Computer Science, ECE, similar technical field of study, or equivalent practical experience
  • Experience in at least one of: machine learning, geometry computation, graph search.
