Join us and catapult your career with the company that helped pioneer autonomous technology, and the first AV software company with the vision to partner directly with a truck manufacturer.

What you’ll do:

In support of our scenario based testing approach, you will create a comprehensive understanding of real world traffic. You will be responsible for the further development and application of a scenario identification pipeline and you will develop methods to find the unknown unknowns. This knowledge is the central pillar of our digital scenario based verification and validation strategy.

  • You develop and implement data engineering as well as data science methods to identify unknown scenarios
  • Enhance our scenario identification pipeline
  • Develop algorithms for automated evaluation of real world data such as time series from raw sensor data
  • Ensure the quality of the identification pipeline
  • Close cooperation with test strategy, closed loop simulation and systems engineering for an integrated verification and validation concept
  • Cooperate with all members of the autonomous development team to understand their data  needs and make this data available and processable
  • Interact with German and international companies and organizations to foster strategic partnerships
  • Keep up to date with the latest technologies in the field of autonomous-driving and data analytics

What you’ll need to succeed:
