Who we are:

Argo AI is in the business of building self-driving technology you can trust. With experienced leaders in the field and collaborative partnerships with some of the world’s largest automakers, we’re building self-driving technology that is engineered to scale globally and transform mobility for millions. 

Talented individuals join our team because they share our purpose to make it safe, easy, and enjoyable for everyone to get around cities. We aspire to impact key industries that move people and goods, from ride hailing to deliveries.

Meet the team:

High-performance solutions need highly-skilled engineers to develop them; safely moving a vehicle through the real world brings significant challenges. The best robotics algorithms that can perfectly solve any scenario must still operate within the constraints of the hardware they run on. Real-world performance is what distinguishes a product from a good idea. We are collaborators by nature; we build the processes, workflows, tools, and architectures to help our industry-leading autonomy teams meet those performance challenges.

What you’ll do: 

  • Design, implement, and test applications and infrastructure for debugging and engineering performance
  • Build developer and operations tooling for large-scale analysis of performance trends
  • Build developer and operations tooling for fine-grain analysis of performance metadata
  • As a member of the onboard performance and code health team, work with and alongside teams who write the code that runs on-vehicle, as we help them to do more with less

What you'll need to succeed:

  • Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field
  • A strong desire to collaborate with others and to identify and advance common goals
  • 7 years of work experience writing modern C++ and Python solutions for OS or embedded systems applications and tools
  • Substitute a bachelor’s or graduate degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering, or Computer Science or Software Engineering, for 4 years of work experience
  • Fluidity with or comfort quickly learning modern C++ (C++11 - C++20) concepts is a must
  • Minimum of 3 years writing C++ applications or libraries and 2 years writing Python applications or libraries

Nice to haves:

  • Experience with dashboard technologies like Looker or Grafana
  • Experience with big-data technologies like PySpark
  • Deep knowledge of computer architecture and optimizing software to run on it

What we offer you:

  • High-quality individual and family medical, dental, and vision insurance
  • Competitive compensation packages
  • Employer-matched 401(k) retirement plan with immediate vesting
  • Employer-paid group term life insurance and the option to elect voluntary life insurance

  • Company and team bonding outlets: employee resource groups, quarterly team activity stipend, and wellness initiatives

Our Background:

Argo AI was founded in late 2016 by industry experts with extensive experience building robotic systems for commercial applications. Our once-small team has since grown into an over 1,000-person strong company with strategic partnerships with two of the world’s leading automakers: Ford and Volkswagen. Our self-driving system is the first with commercial deployment plans for Europe and the U.S., and thanks to an ability to tap into both automakers’ global reach, our technology platform has the largest geographic deployment potential of any self-driving technology to date. 

At Argo AI, we believe that embracing differences delivers superior results. We are an equal opportunity employer that is committed to an inclusive environment for all employees.
