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.
Software Engineering builds the brains of Waymo's fully autonomous driving technology. Our software allows the Waymo Driver to perceive the world around it, make the right decision for every situation, and deliver people 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 driving, we'd like to meet you.
The Perception Sensing team is seeking a TLM for a subteam whose responsibilities include the development of algorithms for the early processing of sensor signals (including Lidar, Radar, Camera, Microphones) and APIs providing efficient access to that data. In this position you’ll have the opportunity to work closely with both our in-house sensor development teams and downstream consumers of sensor data (including other parts of Perception and Planning) to improve the vehicle’s sensing capabilities, streamline the interface between sensors and the rest of the autonomous driving stack, expand testing and evaluation processes and be involved in the design of future vehicle platforms.
The TLM in this role will be responsible for both technical and people management aspects of the project, and own the strategy and roadmaps for the team. IC contributions are welcome but not required although we expect the lead to, over time, develop a deep technical understanding of the software stack and be able to provide hands-on guidance.
