Waymo is the self-driving technology company with a mission to make it safe and easy for people and things to move around. So far, the focus has mostly been on people.
Now we’re turning our attention to things as well. Over the past year, we’ve been conducting road tests of Waymo’s self-driving trucks in California, Arizona, and Georgia. Our software is learning to drive big rigs in much the same way a human driver would after years of driving passenger cars. The principles are the same, but things like braking, turning, and blind spots are different with a fully-loaded truck and trailer.
Software Engineering builds the brains of Waymo's fully self-driving trucks. Our software allows our trucks to perceive the world around them, make the right decision for every situation, and deliver goods 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 trucking, we'd like to meet you.
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!
