Intern, Software Engineering, Perception (in Seattle)

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 think deeply and solve complex technical challenges in areas like robotics, perception, decision-making and deep learning, while collaborating with hardware and systems engineers. If you’re a software engineer or researcher who’s curious and passionate about Level 4 autonomous driving, we'd like to meet you. 

Work on 3D perception at Waymo’s new site in Seattle. Develop new computer vision algorithms for self-driving cars to perceive vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, and foreign objects and debris. Improve sensor and camera calibration algorithms. Research, prototype, and deploy new algorithms.

In this internship, you'll:

  • Researching state-of-the-art perception algorithms.
  • Prototyping and evaluating solutions.
  • Deploying solutions to production.

At a minimum we’d like you to have:

  • Excellent coding skills.
  • Experience with computer vision, robotics, or computer graphics.

It’s preferred if you have:

  • Pursuing MS or PhD in computer vision, graphics, or robotics.
  • Expertise in machine learning.
