As a systems engineer for perception, you will be responsible for collaborating with world-class algorithm engineers to design cutting-edge perception systems. You will be bridging the gap between systems engineering and state-of-the-art machine learning approaches by designing robust system architecture, building requirements for software components, building up scalable metrics/tools and leading the verification and validation efforts at various levels of abstraction. In addition to the perception engineers, you will be working in close collaboration with our sensor hardware development teams. At Zoox, we take systems engineering seriously and know that your efforts will be critical for delivering a driverless robo taxi service at scale.
