Software Engineering
Foster City, CA, USA
Posted on Tuesday, November 29, 2022
Zoox has embarked on a highly ambitious journey to develop a full-stack autonomous mobility solution for our cities. Before a Zoox robot drives on a real road, we have to test its functionality and behavior. This is where the Test Platform development team comes in. We work to design and develop high-fidelity testing platforms to validate software systems running on our AI Compute Stack.
As a Software Engineer on the team, you will work closely with QA, Release, Systems Engineering, and Safety teams to design, develop, and extend test platforms that Zoox can use to execute vehicle representative testing - all from the safety of a server room. You’ll become an expert on how our robot is configured and operated, and how data flows through the AI stack. You’ll contribute not only to our test platforms but also to our driving stack as well.


  • Architect and develop test platforms for system integration testing, with a focus on hardware/software interactions
  • Contribute to the design and development of our integration testing framework, Talos
  • Provide guidance to client teams building tests and tools on top of our test platforms


  • 7+ years of experience with Python in large code bases
  • Systems design and architecture experience
  • Ability to understand complex hardware/software systems and interactions
  • Experience with integration testing
  • Ability to collaborate cross-functionally with hardware and software engineering teams (QA, Infrastructure, Sensors)

Bonus Qualifications

  • Experience in C++
  • Experience with robot middleware (ex: ROS)
  • Linux operating system fundamentals
