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.
A LiDAR system requires a complex network of low-/high- speed digital and analog signals getting transferred from the various circuits in the system. Mechanical and optical constraints can make this task challenging, even more so when SI/PI/EMI/EMC requirements are taken into account.
This internship in the LiDAR team where you will learn to analyze and prototype innovative solutions for reducing the complexity of board-to-board interconnections, starting from the understanding of the various signals and their requirements, to the design and prototyping of ser-des circuits.
Prior study of digital and analog circuits and devices, high speed links as well as analog signals will be helpful. The ideal candidate will have some background in several of the following: electrical engineering, schematic capture and PCB design, FPGA RTL, Python coding, as well as hands-on prototyping and testing experience.
Waymo interns work alongside leaders in the industry on projects that deliver significant impact to the company. We believe learning is a two-way street: leveraging your knowledge while providing you with opportunities to expand your skill-set. Interns are an important part of our culture and our recruiting pipeline. Join us at Waymo for a fun and rewarding internship
