: Senior Machine Learning Research Engineer, Prediction

The machine learning team behind nuScenes (https://www.nuscenes.org), PointPillars (https://arxiv.org/abs/1812.05784), and PointPainting (http://arxiv.org/abs/1911.10150) is looking for engineers and researchers to join us in our mission to launch an autonomous taxi system.

What you'll be doing:

  • Design and deploy deep neural networks that predict the future motion of objects around our self-driving car
  • Work closely with the Planning team to integrate your motion prediction models with our state-of-the-art driving system
  • Conduct experiments, write reports, and file patents
  • Develop core deep learning codebase for efficient training and testing pipelines

What we're looking for:

  • Masters or PhD in Machine Learning, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Physics or a related field with 3+ years of relevant experience
  • Experience designing, training, analyzing, and deploying neural networks for at least one of the following applications: Motion prediction, Behavioral prediction, Intent inference, Object detection, Image segmentation, Sensor fusion, Tracking, Active learning, Anomaly detection, Multitask learning, Network compression, Reinforcement learning, Unsupervised learning
  • Fluency in Python or C++.
  • Experience with PyTorch or other deep learning frameworks
  • Experience deploying deep learning models in a production environment
  • You believe that you can achieve more on a team -- that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts
  • Passion about self-driving technology and its potential impact on the world
  • Leadership experience is a bonus!
