The Metrics Engine team oversees the extraction of data to evaluate the behavior of our av-stack, all the way from devising the metric formulation to extracting all the information necessary to compute these metrics. Beyond evaluating system-level behavior, we also derive metrics to evaluate subsystems that collectively participate to AV system behavior.

As part of this large mission, we are looking for a Senior C++/python engineer to support our growing base of internal customers and expand our metrics evaluation system. This position is at the interface of many different teams, and is key to our ability to identify performance issues early in the AV stack development pipeline.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Develop clean C++/python code to efficiently compute metrics to evaluate our AV stack
  • Conduct experiments to test and validate metric implementations over time
  • Interface with the Autonomy and Testing teams to support their use of our metrics in their workflow 
  • Collaborate with data scientists to implement and improve metrics that rate our AV performance based on laws, ethical considerations and human driving data
  • If interested, identify performance trends and present evaluation results to teams and leadership

What we’re looking for:

  • Experience of C++/python software development and deploying production-level C++/python code
  • Bachelors in Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Physics or a related field with  3+ years of relevant experience
  • Customer-oriented mindset; you think about user experience and are focused on delivering the features needed to improve their day-to-day; nothing more, nothing less
  • Ability to communicate about code implementation and walk non-software engineers through code clearly  
  • Experience in implementing metrics and evaluating complex systems

Bonus points (but not required):

  • Experience in the autonomous driving industry
  • Experience with geometry packages and implementation in C++/python

(Colorado only*) Minimum salary of $172,020/year + bonus + equity + benefits
