Foster City, CA, USA
Posted on Wednesday, April 26, 2023
Autonomous vehicles have some of the largest, most complex software ever shipped in a safety-critical environment. Solving that problem is one of the most exciting technical challenges of our lifetime.
As an Engineering Manager supporting the integration, test, and release of software, you will help accelerate our product development by leading a team of test engineers to deploy the most reliable and safe autonomous driving software possible. As developers build new features, you and your team will develop extensive test plans, design system integration tests to execute different scenarios, measure system performance, and triage issues seen during on-vehicle and offline testing. These efforts are critical to maintaining the quality of code in the main repository with no regressions to safety or driving characteristics. You will be required to create opportunities to automate testing and optimize development and test processes, perform code reviews and enforce best coding practices.
You will have the opportunity to work cross-functionally across the Software organization, making contributions to directly impact and improve developer productivity, working closely with release engineering, infrastructure, and platform test teams. Your ability to understand the overall system design and component interaction to help guide test methodology for functional and safety sign-off will be crucial for the success of this role.
