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 Waymo Driver—The World’s Most Experienced Driver™—to improve everyone'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.
Simulation is critical to Waymo's success (see how simulation helps advance our Waymo Driver). A simulator for the Waymo Driver should be fast and realistic. It enables quick development iteration while preserving trust in the outcome.
TensorFlow-First Simulation is working to, 1) improve realism by applying advanced ML techniques on simulation features, and 2) improve speed by running them efficiently on accelerators like TPU. Our team is focused on infrastructure. We partner with teams across Waymo to integrate their latest features and models, and scale it to run on Waymo's planet-scale simulation infrastructure.
Do you enjoy building systems and are excited about leveraging cutting edge technology for Autonomous Vehicle testing? If so, this team is for you! Backgrounds in TensorFlow, TPUs, ML infrastructures, and performance optimization with accelerators are a plus.
Note: The following is only applicable for roles hired in the US. As we keep the safety of our employees and our communities top of mind, COVID-19 vaccinations continue to be a critical prevention measure to help end the pandemic. Because of this, Waymo requires all US-based employees who perform work onsite for Waymo to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. If you are unable to be vaccinated, Waymo will provide a reasonable accommodation consistent with applicable law.
