Zoox is building autonomous mobility from the ground up. The simulation team is an important part of our ecosystem. Their virtual environments are instrumental in creating safe, capable, and comfortable autonomous vehicles. They are working to build services that make it easier to generate, curate and digest simulated content.
At Zoox, simulation is integrated into the development process across the entire AI stack, including Perception, Prediction, Planner modules, as well as the Safety Case framework. Everyday, thousands of simulations are run to examine how collisions are detected or how our robots might interact with the world. We are looking for a Product Manager to help us thoughtfully scale our tools in service of Zoox’s developers.

- A talent for distilling ambiguous problem spaces into compelling product visions.
- Curiosity, a desire to figure out how to make things better. Especially how people use simulations to understand potential outcomes.
- Experience leading with empathy. Affecting outcomes with influence instead of authority.
- A technical background, you can learn and understand Software development, and concepts such as trustability or how gaps exist between simulated and real world environments.
- 8+ years of product management experience.
