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.
Every year around the world:
At Waymo, our mission is to make it safe and easy for people and things to get to where they’re going. This is an opportunity to join us in that mission to make the world a better place.
Autonomous vehicles are going to transform transportation. On this team, we work on the high-level motion planning and behaviors of Waymo’s fully autonomous vehicles. We play a critical role in:
We use uncertain inputs about the driving environment from multiple sources such as perception, behavior prediction, and rules of the road to construct a well-formulated planning problem. We work closely with the product team and other engineering teams such as perception, motion planning, and machine learning to deliver safe driving that delights users. We are continuously striving to make autonomous vehicles safe, comfortable, and predictable.
We are a fast-growing team at the forefront of solving some of the most critical, challenging, and high-impact problems in autonomous driving. The highly interconnected nature of our work will provide you opportunities to learn about large parts of the autonomous vehicle (AV) tech stack. You will be helping us to solve problems at the state of the art of AV technology which very few people have previously considered. Progress that you make in solving these problems will have high visibility across the company.
Along with technical strengths, we value team members who embrace uncertainty, take ownership and accountability for results, show initiative, collaborate effectively across team boundaries, welcome diverse perspectives, and do what’s right for our users.
