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.

The Waymo Mapping team’s goal is to build a high resolution map of the world to support safe self-driving. We work on creating the map using a combination of automatic and manual techniques and build the infrastructure to store, process, and distribute the map.

  • Building backend infrastructure for storing and processing many forms of map data
  • Applying automated techniques to generate maps from raw data
  • Improving our internal tools for viewing and editing maps
  • Scaling our systems to support mapping the world

You need to have:

  • B.S, M.S. or Ph.D in Computer Science or a similar technical field, or equivalent practical experience
  • Willingness to own problems end-to-end and work on various parts of the system
  • Experience working on scalable backend servers
  • A passion for good software engineering

We’d prefer if you have:

  • Experience with C++
  • Experience with large-scale data processing using frameworks like Google Cloud Dataflow or Apache Beam
  • Experience with SLAM, probabilistic filtering, and/or optimization
