This job is no longer accepting applications.

AEye develops advanced vision hardware, software and algorithms that act as the eyes and visual cortex of autonomous vehicles. Since its demonstration of its solid state LiDAR scanner in 2013, AEye has pioneered breakthroughs in intelligent sensing. The company is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and backed by world-renowned investors such as Kleiner Perkins, Intel, Airbus, Subaru, LG Electronics, Hella, and more.

AEye is looking for a highly motivated sensor scheduling optimizer. The individual will be expected to develop and maintain laser shot design tools for an innovative agile LiDAR system.

What is essential however is the ability to understand and contribute to development of highly sophisticated (and elegant) optimization tools for lidar shot lists that are constrained by mirror motion, energy, range interval, update rate, angle spacing, target obliquity, and other considerations.

Tasks, Duties & Responsibilities:

  • Documentation of algorithms
  • Testing proposed shot lists
  • validation of eye safety 
  • Other duties and responsibilities as assigned

Essential Skills & Experience Requirements (required):

  • Fluency in matrix algebra such as least squares, linear and quadratic programming.
