Technical Lead, Object Tracking

Company: Argo Ai
Location: Pittsburgh
Posted on: September 13, 2020

Job Description:

Pittsburgh, PA and Metro Detroit, MI and Palo Alto, CA

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:

Tracking is a core technical problem for L4 self-driving vehicles and a key part of our autonomy stack. Self-driving cars need to track actors and estimate velocities around the vehicle to enable rapid and accurate decision making. The implementation must meet rigorous real-time constraints and report stable tracks for the car to accurately identify the 3D state of the world. Ultimately, we must not only solve the algorithm challenges but produce safety-quality high performance software. So this position is as much a software challenge as it is a core algorithm challenge.

We are looking for hands on candidates who can set the vision for, grow, and lead a strong technical team with a mix of vision, probabilistic filtering and LiDAR algorithm experience and strong software experience. We are looking for a team lead who will be deep in code, and is technically strong in software and strong in tracking algorithms -- segmentation, clustering, data association, multi-extended object tracking and filtering, MHT or other registration algorithms. Candidates need not have worked on self-driving, or robotics applications.

What you’ll do:

Responsible for the component of the self driving vehicle keeping track in space and time of objects around the car and estimating their velocities

Leading the team to advance the algorithmic performance through pragmatic and rigorous A vs B evaluations using a mix of state of the art or “classical” techniques

Ensure that the algorithms are integrated within our onboard infrastructure and hardware, are robustly implemented and run in real time

Coordinate with data collection to select and label relevant data to improve our tracking algorithms and develop metrics by which the tracking system is evaluated

Manage a team of ~7 engineers and researchers

What you'll need to succeed:

Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field

Experienced software engineer working on problems with advanced algorithms or researcher with a track record of real world applications involving solid software engineering

Managed or tech lead small teams

Strong theoretical and practical applied knowledge of relevant subsets of tracking-relevant algorithms is required

Strong software engineering skills using C++ are required. If the candidate is not already an expert in C++, a willingness to gain stronger software engineering knowledge in this language is required

Strong leadership skills suitable for recruiting, leading and managing a team of engineers to solve a challenging problem and build a critical component of a real-time system

We are building a product, so candidates with hands on experience that have deployed real products or platforms and intimately understand the challenges of working with complex systems are highly desired

Strong presentation and communication skills are desired

Managed or tech lead small teams

Real-time applications

Image or LIDAR-based Tracking

Multiple Object Tracking

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

Paid parental leave

Paid medical leave

Unlimited vacation

Complimentary daily lunches, beverages, and snacks

Monthly wellness stipend

Employee assistance program

Discounted programs that include legal services, identity theft protection, pet insurance, and more

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.
