Map Engine Engineer - Autonomous Vehicles



Multiple locations
Posted on Thursday, December 28, 2023

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer for Autonomous Vehicles in the DRIVE map provider team in China. We expect to work with various Navigation map providers as well as Nvidia crowdsourced maps to provide critical information for planning.

In this role, you will help craft and guide our low-cost map building solution, which is the future of NVIDIA’s autonomous vehicle mapping system. We seek extraordinary engineers who are passionate about building self-driving cars and who have a background in mapping, software design, and embedded real-time software. Are you interested in inventing human level AI for navigation in the unconstrained world under any conditions? If so, join us!

What You'll Be Doing

  • Develop core functionality for map-based driving.

  • Download map content on the fly based on car requests in a safety critical manner.

  • Handle real-time system signals in the car running all over the world.

  • Write safe embedded software code to run in real-time systems.

  • Develop highly efficient product code in C++ and make use of algorithmic parallelism offered by GPGPU programming (CUDA).

  • Produce code and designs following automotive quality and safety standards (AUTOSAR, ISO 26262).

  • Review teammates' architecture, design, and software code.

  • Mentor newer team members in software engineering and your unique expertise areas

What We Need To See

  • BS or MS in Computer Science or equivalent experience

  • 2+ years of proven experience building robust software

  • 2+ years of C++ development working experience

  • Passion for robotics and autonomous vehicles

  • Drive to learn new things and tackle meaningful problems

  • Outstanding communication and cross-team collaboration

  • Independent and analytical software engineering skills

Ways To Stand Out From The Crowd

  • Software development on embedded or automotive platforms

  • Global-scale map building and geographic information systems (GIS)

  • Background in 3D geometry and graphics

  • Strong API and framework design skills

  • Experience with ADASISv2 and/or ADASISv3 interfaces and familiarity with Navigation map providers.

We believe that building self-driving vehicles will be a defining contribution of our generation (e.g. traffic accidents are responsible for ~1.25 million deaths per year world-wide). We have the funding and scale, but we need your help on our team. NVIDIA is widely considered to be one of the technology world’s most desirable employers with some of the most forward-thinking people in the world working here. If you're entrepreneurial and autonomous, we want to hear from you!
