The Data Mining team in Singapore develops cutting edge algorithms and infrastructure for data mining in the context of autonomous driving. Our goal is to improve the on-road performance of products that use machine learning at their core by mining for modeling errors, environment anomalies & challenging long-tail events. The Data Mining team is also driving the development of nuPlan, the world’s first large-scale motion planning dataset and benchmark.

We are seeking a highly motivated Data Engineer to help expand our data mining capabilities for autonomous driving. You will be collaborating with world-class engineers & scientists to develop algorithms and infrastructure to mine for data used for improving ML products.

As a fresh-graduate you will experience real-world problems that will enable you to put everything you have learnt into action and give yourself an opportunity to join us in shaping the future. You will join our Singapore office, but we offer flexible working hours and allow for remote work.

What will you be doing?

  • Work with a data-oriented team that works on improving various machine learning algorithms for object detection, prediction and planning
  • Assist in training and tracking the performances of various AI/ML-based autonomous driving modules 
  • Develop, maintain and visualize indicators to characterize the behavior of our autonomous vehicles
  • Design and implement queries to mine for specific use-case scenarios in our driving logs
  • Contribute to public and private APIs to our datasets
  • Contribute to patents, publications, and other external communications

What we're looking for:

  • Degree in Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Statistics or related fields
  • Good understanding of Data Structures and Algorithms
  • Proficiency in SQL and familiarity with various DBMSes (PostgreSQL, Oracle, MongoDB etc.)
  • Prior experience with Data Visualization tools (Redash, Tableau, Bokeh, Plotly etc.)
  • Proficiency in Python or other scripting languages (Java, R etc.) in a Linux environment
  • Familiarity with version control systems such as Git
  • Experience with a Machine Learning framework (PyTorch, Tensorflow, Scikit-Learn etc.)

Bonus points (not required):

  • Prior Industrial experience in software development within an Agile team
  • Experience working with cloud services (AWS, Google Cloud etc.)
  • Knowledge in robotics or related fields such as computer vision, navigation, planning etc.
  • Familiarity with autonomous driving sensors (cameras, 3D sensors, localization sensors etc.)
  • Familiarity with C++, CUDA, PyTorch Lightning
