About the role

We are looking for a software engineer with expertise in ML-first behavior prediction and planning. You will develop ML-first behavior modules that can forecast the future motions of road users and predict their interactions. You will work closely with the perception team on areas such as training data generation, and with the planning team on ML-based planner development.

In addition to your engineering contributions, by working in our dynamic and customer-focused team culture, you will contribute to and learn from best practices in the nascent autonomy industry. We move fast and we focus on excellence, for our products and for our business. If you are hands-on and looking for a place to have a multiplying effect on making autonomous systems a reality, Applied Intuition is the place for you!

At Applied Intuition, you will:

  • Prototype, evaluate, refine, and deploy state-of-the-art ML algorithms that predict the future motion of the ego agent and other road users in the scene
  • Leverage established products at Applied Intuition to build the software and infra foundation for behavior-specific ML development
  • Collaborate tightly with perception and planning engineers on many cross-team initiatives

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Experience with the end-to-end development cycle of deep learning models
  • Expertise in subdomains such as modeling, input pipelines, evaluation, deployment, and model optimization
  • 3+ years of experience building production software using modern software practices
  • Fluency in C++, or fluency in Python with intermediate experience in C++

Nice to have:

  • Publications in computer vision, NLP, or robotics
  • Experience with driver assistance or autonomous driving systems
  • Experience in evaluating and improving system-in-the-loop model performance

The salary range for this position is $65,000 USD to $400,000 USD annually. This salary range is an estimate, and the actual salary may vary based on the Company's compensation practices.
