  • understand the state of the art in robotics and autonomous driving algorithms,
  • develop extensible and maintainable architectures for robotic, autonomy, and perception algorithm implementations,
  • bridge the gap between research and development and implement algorithms for safety-critical use cases,
  • ensure the highest code quality,
  • use the cutting edge Apex.OS robotics frameworks to the full extent of its capabilities,
  • ensure highest code quality and performance by writing unit and integration tests.

Expected qualifications and characteristics are

  • Master's or foreign equivalent in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Mathematics or related field,
  • 4+ years prior experience designing and implementing robotic or autonomous driving software,

  • excellent and proven modern C++ skills (ie. C++11 or later),
  • a drive to implement robust and reliable software, and see that through until launch in customer production vehicles,
  • strong work ethic and commitment to excellence and data driven decision making,
  • exceptional written and verbal communication skills,
  • a bias for action, and speed in making decisions and executing tasks,
  • the ability to enthusiastically take on new projects and see them through to completion,
  • successful track record of shipping software products.
