Job Description / Skills Required

Bringing self-driving vehicles to our roads is the most transformative opportunity of our generation. Aurora is taking a fresh start with the development of self-driving technology, combining excellence in AI, rigorous engineering, and a team with decades of experience building robots that work.

Led by a team of seasoned experts, our mission is to deliver the benefits of self-driving technology safely, quickly, and broadly. We are designing the software and hardware to power the transportation of our future that will make our roads safer, give more people access to mobility, and reduce congestion and pollution in cities - improving the quality of life for all. The challenge in what we are endeavoring to achieve is transcendent; we are developing perhaps the world's most complex computing system and asking it to perform the task of transporting and keeping safe our most precious asset: human life.

Aurora is looking for software engineers that will help us build world-class simulators for sensors like lidar and radar. You will be part of a team working on the core sensor simulators, as well as related tools and infrastructure for simulating an autonomous vehicle driving in a simulated environment.

  • Write and improve code for simulating sensors on an autonomous vehicle
  • Design and maintain library code that supports sensor simulation tasks
  • Integrate sensor simulation code with other simulators and systems
  • Write tools and tests for validating simulators
  • BS, MS or PhD in Computer Science, a related field, or equivalent experience
  • Solid modern C++ programming fundamentals
  • Strong mathematical and algorithmic skills
  • Passion for solving challenging, impactful problems
  • Experience with signal processing, numerical methods, or physical simulation
  • Knowledge of computer graphics fundamentals and experience in graphics programming
  • Coding experience in Python
  • Experience with devices such as cameras, lidar and radar

Working at Aurora

Our work has real purpose. Delivering the benefits of self-driving will save lives around the world, expand access to transportation, revitalize cities, and give people time back every day.

We’re one team. We’re inspired by the challenge of what we’re solving and the impact our work will have on society. Our camaraderie is built on respect for our work and the fundamental belief our success will be a result of working together.

The Founding Team

Aurora has assembled the most experienced leadership team in the space. Chris Urmson helped lead Carnegie Mellon’s efforts in Darpa’s Grand Challenges, then was a founding member of Google’s self-driving team. Sterling Anderson developed MIT'S Intelligent CoPilot, then led the team that delivered Tesla Autopilot. Drew Bagnell, also a Carnegie Mellon alum, is a machine learning expert who helped build Uber’s autonomy effort. At Aurora, these three continue to bring experts from all areas of the industry to the team. We are funded by Amazon, T Rowe Price, and some of Silicon Valley’s best venture capital firms, including Sequoia, Greylock and Index Ventures.
