Software Engineer, Map Algorithms (m/f/d)

Argo AI

  • Full Time

Company: Argo AI GmbH

Who we are:

Argo AI is a global self-driving products and services company on a mission to make the world’s streets and roadways safe, accessible, and useful for all. Our technology is built to enable commercial services for autonomous delivery and ridesharing in cities. 

With experienced leaders in the field and collaborative partnerships with some of the world’s top consumer brands, we’re working block by block, city by city to empower people and businesses to be more successful. We’re individuals driven by strong values to solve complex problems together. Come join us to reimagine the human journey.

Meet the team:

We are seeking hands-on candidates who will be deep in code, and are technically strong in either point cloud processing, geometric computer vision, or map change detection to support building the maps for Argo’s self-driving cars. Since the maps by nature support many modules in the system, successful candidates are also expected to build metrics and tools to evaluate the quality of the maps and subsystems over time. Prior experience in self-driving or robotics applications is not required. Candidates with extremely strong skills in some areas but weaker in others will be considered with a bias towards strong software engineering skills.

What you’ll do: 

  • Design and implement algorithms to build the maps for Argo’s self-driving cars
  • Design and implement metrics and tools to evaluate and validate the map products
  • Design and implement algorithms to compare different generations of map products across time
  • Collaborate with engineers across teams to improve the maps. It requires not only developing algorithms to build good maps, but also understanding how the maps are consumed by different modules, so that sensible decisions can be made

What you'll need to succeed:

  • Design and implement algorithms to build the maps for Argo’s self-driving cars
  • Design and implement metrics and tools to evaluate and validate the map products
  • Design and implement algorithms to compare different generations of map products across time
  • Collaborate with engineers across teams to improve the maps. It requires not only developing algorithms to build good maps, but also understanding how the maps are consumed by different modules, so that sensible decisions can be made

What we offer you:

  • Competitive compensation packages
  • 30 vacation days
  • Subsidized daily lunches, beverages, and snacks
  • Professional development reimbursement
  • Global Employee assistance program (Offerings include: work-life balance support, mindfulness programs, life coaching, new parent coaching, and more!)
  • Local and global discount programs
  • Company and team bonding outlets: employee resource groups, quarterly team activity stipend, and wellness initiatives

Our Background:

Argo AI was founded in 2016 by industry experts with extensive experience building robotic systems for commercial applications. Our once-small team has since grown into an over 1,700-person strong company with strategic partnerships with some of the world’s leading consumer brands. With global headquarters in Pittsburgh, we operate in eight cities across the U.S. and Germany in areas where self-driving technology can have the biggest impact on improving safety, traffic, and transportation equity.

At Argo AI, we believe that embracing differences delivers superior results. We are an equal opportunity employer that is committed to an inclusive environment for all employees.
