Mission Summary

As part of the Infrastructure Runtime team you will work on helping to design and develop the next generation of on-vehicle logging infrastructure. This is a unique opportunity to have an impact on both onboard software as well as offboard workflows that rely on this critical data to better help the self-driving system learn to drive itself.

The ideal candidate If you are interested in tackling the challenges of developing mission critical, high performance, software running on a constrained compute platform while also optimizing data retrieval from both local and cloud storage solutions.

Motional is looking for a self-motivated software engineering leader to lead our on-vehicle runtime framework team.  You will be at the forefront for practical coordination between the many autonomy and infrastructure on-vehicle software components of our highly complex driverless vehicle system in order to ensure our success.  You will use your knowledge of high performance infrastructure software, compute hardware capabilities, and systems engineering to accelerate the organization toward our goal of a fully driverless robotaxi. 


What you'll be doing:

In this role: 

  • You will lead the team of software engineers bringing Motional’s next generation on-board task runtime infrastructure to life
  • You will work closely with your colleagues across the software engineering organization to help them utilize the new runtime infrastructure
  • You will set the vision and mission of the team, manage the team’s planning and execution of work, and ensure organizational goals are being met
  • Your experience in personnel leadership will help the group stay engaged, evolve, and adapt to meet new challenges across the organization

What we're looking for:

  • You are excited about empowering and growing the capabilities of your engineering team
  • You have experience supervising a high-performing group of software engineers
  • You are passionate about developing robust and performant infrastructure software
  • You are capable of balancing and prioritizing the multiple competing needs of a framework including performance, ease of use, and observability
  • You enjoy the challenge of working with internal customers and stakeholders to build the infrastructure that all of their software is built upon

Bonus points (not required):

  • Experience developing and rolling out large-scale infrastructure frameworks
  • Experience with on-vehicle software performance analysis and tuning
  • Experience briefing executive leadership on development and integration progress

If you don’t meet 100% of the qualifications outlined above – that’s okay! We encourage you to apply if you think this is a role that would make you excited to come into work every day and that you can deliver the results we need.
