Job Description / Skills Required

Embark Trucks is a leading self-driving truck company bringing autonomous freight mainstream. We have raised $117m by partnering with Tiger Global ($70m Series C) and Sequoia Capital ($30m Series B) to help grow our team and introduce our technology to the public. Currently, we move freight daily between LA and Phoenix using our purpose-built transfer hubs. We have aligned ourselves with truck manufacturers, shippers, and carriers to integrate our technology into the freight ecosystem. This is an incredibly exciting time for autonomous vehicles and our team is looking to grow.
Embark uses machine learning to solve some of the hardest problems in self-driving. With engineers training new models every day, building and maintaining powerful infrastructure and data pipelines to enable fast iteration on our machine learning models is key to Embark’s success. The goal of ML Platform is to build the best infrastructure to support the key functions of machine learning, including ground truth data collection, data curation and exploration, training and evaluation.

    • Experience curating and managing large datasets
    • A good working understanding of the machine learning process, including dataset collection and curation, training and evaluation pipelines.

Preferred experience:

    • Experience with open-source and/or commercial cloud ML platforms, such as Kubeflow, Metaflow, or Sagemaker.
    • Experience with training and deploying models built on common machine learning frameworks (Tensorflow, PyTorch, etc).
    • Experience collecting and working with ground truth data.
    • Familiarity with containerization and orchestration frameworks (Docker, Kubernetes, etc).


    • A full time, competitive salary with equity
