Intern, LiDAR Sales, LiDAR Application Engineer
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.

What is Laser Bear Industries (LBI)?

LBI is a team within Waymo that produces and ships world-class, 3D LiDAR solutions to enable robotic and general depth sensing. We are a relatively small, cross-functional team spanning engineering, product management, program management, sales, customer success, legal, and manufacturing working on Honeycomb (waymo.com/lidar).

Honeycomb is a revolutionary LiDAR that has a key unique feature -- a 95-degree vertical field-of-view (FoV). This FoV is unprecedented for a LiDAR sensor, and we’re working to help our customers take full advantage of it. We’re looking for a LiDAR applications engineer to develop tools and applications that make it easy for customers to leverage the full capabilities of Honeycomb. In this role, you will work closely with software engineering, hardware engineering, product management, sales, and customer success to integrate the Honeycomb LIDAR into higher level applications such as object detection or SLAM.

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