About the role

We are looking for a software engineer with expertise in planning and control for autonomous vehicles or mobile robots. Your contributions will focus on building out key capabilities of our core simulation engine; specifically, your mission will be to make our simulated agent behaviors more realistic and easier for users to create. You will also drive the design and development of products and add-ons that empower our customers' planning and control teams to tackle their engineering challenges faster and more sustainably than their competition.
In addition to your engineering contributions, by working in our dynamic and customer-focused team culture, you will contribute to and learn from best practices in the nascent autonomy industry. We move fast and focus on excellence, for our products and for our business. If you are hands-on and looking for a place to have a multiplying effect on making autonomous systems a reality, Applied Intuition is the place for you!

At Applied Intuition, you will:

  • Design and implement platform capabilities and product workflows that provide the best simulation tools for customer teams spanning intelligent behavior planning, control, and safety engineering
  • Build out foundational libraries that push our platform beyond the state of the art in terms of performance and fidelity for planning and controls development, such as scalable computational geometry or vehicle-terrain interaction models
  • Work closely with in-house and customer engineers to design and build supporting toolchains for these use cases, such as system identification or resimulation of disengagement events

We're looking for someone who has:

  • A passion for turning their domain expertise into tooling that boosts the productivity of teams working on various real-world applications of autonomous systems
  • Experience building software components or (sub) systems that address real-world planning and control challenges
  • Hands-on experience with more than one domain of relevant software framework or tools, such as middlewares, benchmarking suites, data sets, and related pipelines or algorithmic libraries
  • Deep understanding of the concepts and methods behind any frameworks or libraries that they worked with

Nice to have:

  • MSc or PhD in planning, control, or closely related field
  • Deep hands-on expertise in relevant algorithms or methods, such as non-linear optimization, computational geometry, numerical analysis, or distributed systems
  • Experience building and shipping software frameworks or tools that are used by others outside of the authors of the framework

The salary range for this position is $65,000 USD to $400,000 USD annually. This salary range is an estimate, and the actual salary may vary based on the Company's compensation practices.
