: Senior Data Engineer - Prediction and Behavior Modeling

We are looking to add a highly talented Prediction and Behavior Modeling Data Engineer to help us build probabilistic models of the future state of the world. As a data engineer, you will help build the data infrastructure for the motion prediction models that we use to improve our interactions with cars, pedestrians, and other road users. Your software engineering and data analytics experience will inform your pragmatic approach to making a more intelligent autonomous vehicle. Does this sound like you?

What you'll be doing:

  • Dive into data to understand behaviors of external world actors such as cars, bikes, and pedestrians; leverage machine learning methods where appropriate
  • Help translate algorithms into production-level code
  • Design, implement, and monitor ETL pipelines
  • Work with researchers to build data infrastructure to support novel architectures

What we're looking for:

  • BS in computer science, engineering, or applied math with 3+ years practical experience in data science, modeling, statistics, and analysis of large data sets
  • Fluency with Python
  • Experience developing infrastructure to support users of large data sets
  • Experience using modern software engineering tools (e.g., version control, CI)

Bonus points (not required):

  • Experience using common Machine Learning and Deep Learning algorithms (e.g., for classification, regression, and clustering)
  • Experience developing autonomous vehicles or robots
  • Experience with C++
