Prediction & Behavior ML Internship/Co-op
Software Engineering, Data Science
Foster City, CA, USA
Posted on Wednesday, September 27, 2023
The Prediction & Behavior ML team is responsible for developing machine-learned models that understand the full scene around our vehicle and forecast the behavior for other agents, our own vehicle’s actions, and for offline applications.
To solve these problems we develop deep learning algorithms that can learn behaviors from data and apply them on-vehicle to influence our vehicle’s driving behavior and offline to provide learned models to autonomy simulation and validation. Given the tight integration of behavior forecasting and motion planning, our team necessarily works very closely with the Planner team in the advancement of our overall vehicle behavior. The Prediction & Behavior ML team also works closely with our Perception, Simulation, and Systems Engineering teams on many cross-team initiatives.
As an intern you will push the boundaries of deep learning for behavior prediction, planning, autonomy validation, ml for simulation, foundation models, and more. You will work together with other interns and full time engineers to develop new ideas and benchmark them on Zoox’s vast internal datasets. You will also have the opportunity to share your results with the wider autonomy teams at Zoox and through external conference publications.
Technical Qualifications & Language Requirements
- Advanced understanding of Python or C++
- Experience with production ML pipelines: dataset creation, labeling, training, metrics
- Experience with Neural Network design and implementation
The monthly salary range for this position is $6,500 to $9,500. Compensation will vary based on role, degree level and type, and benefits will be offered based on eligibility. Additional benefits may include medical insurance, 401k, and a housing stipend.
Zoox is developing the first ground-up, fully autonomous vehicle fleet and the supporting ecosystem required to bring this technology to market. Sitting at the intersection of robotics, machine learning, and design, Zoox aims to provide the next generation of mobility-as-a-service in urban environments. We’re looking for top talent that shares our passion and wants to be part of a fast-moving and highly execution-oriented team.
A Final Note:
You do not need to match every listed expectation to apply for this position. Here at Zoox, we know that diverse perspectives foster the innovation we need to be successful, and we are committed to building a team that encompasses a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and skills.
