Intern, ESWE, Embedded Simulation
Mountain View, California, United States

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.

Embedded simulation subgroup works hard to ensure the quality and safety of the embedded software. We build tools to simulate and test the embedded parts of the self-driving stack both on the module level and as a part of the full system. We’re seeking engineers who want to operate on all levels, from low-level hardware programming to high-level system integration.
