Intern, Product Management, Simulation Team - Eval
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.

Waymo takes an integrated approach to building the world’s first self-driving car, with researchers, designers, product managers, and technical program managers working side by side. We seek to understand the needs of our users and the opportunities of the technology to ensure we build the best product. From self driving behavior to user interfaces, we work to inspire the product vision and then make it a reality.

The Simulation Team enables Waymo to simulate and analyze millions of miles of driving every day. We can recreate, modify, and amplify our real-world experience -- or generate entirely new situations from scratch. We work with teams across Waymo, enabling the rapid iterations in advancing self-driving technology. Our work was featured in The Atlantic - "Inside Waymo's Secret World for training Self-Driving Cars". As powerful as this system is, there are still many open problems to solve and much work ahead of us. 

Waymo interns work alongside leaders in the industry on projects that deliver significant impact to the company.
