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 the location, orientation and velocity of the car. We do everything from selecting IMU’s and writing firmware, to implementing estimation algorithms like Kalman and particle filters, to analyzing safety and redundancy system architectures.
An emerging topic for self-driving cars is the security of satellite positioning systems such as GPS and Galileo to malicious interference. As an intern, you will be responsible for analyzing threats and developing systems to help mitigate the risk posed from GNSS spoofing and jamming.
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.
