Senior Robotics Engineer - LIDAR/Sensor Fusion
May Mobility is transforming cities through autonomous technology to create a safer, greener, more accessible world. Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, May develops and deploys autonomous vehicles (AVs) powered by our innovative Multi-Policy Decision Making (MPDM) technology that literally reimagines the way AVs think.
Our vehicles do more than just drive themselves - they provide value to communities, bridge public transit gaps and move people where they need to go safely, easily and with a lot more fun. We’re building the world’s best autonomy system to reimagine transit by minimizing congestion, expanding access and encouraging better land use in order to foster more green, vibrant and livable spaces. Since our founding in 2017, we’ve given more than 300,000 autonomy-enabled rides to real people around the globe. And we’re just getting started. We’re hiring people who share our passion for building the future, today, solving real-world problems and seeing the impact of their work. Join us.
May’s Lead Engineers are front-line problem solvers that get things done. May’s lead engineers have the initiative, experience, and technical skills to be able to solve problems delegated to them without oversight. Confidence backed by knowledge and experience is a must.
As a Senior Robotics Engineer - LIDAR/Sensor Fusion, you will lead the solution of challenging and complex problems facing vehicle autonomy. You will lead the design of future May autonomy systems and track down and solve the system’s most difficult issues.
Autonomy system engineers are responsible for the integrated functioning of the autonomy system. Systems engineers interact with vision, LIDAR, RADAR, tracking, intent, decision-making, control, networking, health monitoring, computers, graphics cards, and power. System engineers drive forward architectural design and hardware/software design through collaboration across other engineering groups. You will be a go-to person for understanding how new features will fit in, how the system might fail, how to best evolve the system to be more effective or efficient, and how to keep the system working.
As a leader, you will set an example of initiative, data-driven decision-making, design, and troubleshooting. You will also guide and mentor more junior autonomy engineers so that they can work more effectively with May’s systems. This position reports to the VP of Autonomy.
Your Opportunity to Drive Success
You will have an opportunity to independently impact our approach to solving the most interesting problems facing AV’s today, while operating live in the wild.
