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.
Hardware Engineering is a diverse, innovative, and collaborative group of electrical, mechanical, reliability, software and vehicle engineers. We design, build, and perfect the products which are the eyes and ears of Waymo's self-driving systems, and integrate those products into vehicle platforms. We're seeking curious and talented teammates to keep us moving in the right direction.
The positioning team at Waymo is responsible for determining where, what direction and how fast the car is moving. We combine various sensors (GPS, wheels, IMU, laser, radar), information sources (maps, 3-d geometry) and algorithms to do this accurately and reliably. Hence we have projects that span the scope of the sensor and algorithms involved. You will be focused on an area within the pose estimation stack and be expected analyse and extend our algorithms and write solid code that runs on the car.
