  • Predict the behavior of other actors in a way that's both accurate and improves driving performance
  • Improve the end-to-end latency of the motion planning and prediction algorithms
  • Build tools that enable us to leverage real-world logs to improve our algorithms
  • Work closely with other teams to establish interfaces and requirements
  • Invent cross-functional solutions to cutting-edge problems in autonomous-driving You must have:
    • A strong background in robotics, planning, optimization, and mathematics (MS, PhD, or equivalent experience)
