Waymo is an autonomous driving technology company with a mission to make it safe and easy for people and things to get where they’re going. Since our start as the Google Self-Driving Car Project in 2009, Waymo has been focused on building the World’s Most Experienced Driver in hopes of improving the world's access to mobility while saving thousands of lives now lost to traffic crashes. Our Waymo Driver powers Waymo One, our fully autonomous ride-hailing service, as well as Waymo Via, our trucking and local delivery service. To date, Waymo has driven over 20 million miles autonomously on public roads across 25 U.S. cities and conducted over 20 billion miles of simulation testing.
High quality point cloud data is of immense value to the safe and correct operation of autonomous vehicles. The lidar team creates state of the art lidar systems to directly sense the world in three dimensions, accurately and precisely, in real time. We apply advanced algorithms and sophisticated signal processing techniques to extract meaningful information about the surrounding world. As a software engineer you will work with physicists, mechanical, optical, and electrical engineers to better inform the algorithms we develop and the lidars we design.
The production software that we write needs to be of the highest caliber, as it needs to run in real-time, often requiring nanosecond precision, and be optimized for high throughput. We perform analyses on massive amounts of data using cutting edge Big Data technologies.
We are looking for creative Software Engineer interns that like playing with hardware, develop sophisticated algorithms, and thrive in an interdisciplinary team setting.
