The recently formed Autonomy Metrics team is a group of software engineers who accelerate the progress of Motional’s autonomous vehicles by developing high-quality, data-driven key performance indicators organization-wide. Specifically, the AV system and subsystem metrics are used to guide training and evaluation of our neural networks, our dashboards are used to guide strategic decisions across all levels including senior leadership, and our infrastructure provides always-available critical tools for all engineers.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Own the backend for core products developed by the team
  • Build up processing and data aggregation methods.
  • Interact with DynamoDB and SQL databases.
  • Create, document, and test API endpoints.
  • Work with frontend developers to provide an optimal user experience for web applications.
  • Work with engineers creating metrics to integrate new data types and continually improving our components.

What we’re looking for:

  • Advanced programming experience, ideally in Python 
  • Strong backend development experience
  • Exposure to architectural patterns of large, high-scale cloud applications
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills
  • A strong sense of ownership: Be able to drive projects from conception to production
  • Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or related degree

Bonus points (but not required):

  • Experience with flask servers
  • Experience with Swagger documentation
  • Experience with DynamoDB
  • Experience developing in and deploying to AWS

Why you should join us:

The team charter is centered around three core concepts:

  • How should we score our autonomous vehicle system and subsystems as a whole in a way that is compliant with legal, ethical, and ride comfort related constraints? 
  • How do we quickly and efficiently obtain system level metrics via large scale simulation?
  • How can we extract value from the large volume of high-quality data we collect?
