We're Cruise, a self-driving service designed for the cities we love.

We’re building the world’s most advanced, self-driving vehicles to safely connect people to the places, things, and experiences they care about. We believe self-driving vehicles will help save lives, reshape cities, give back time in transit, and restore freedom of movement for many.

About the role:

At Cruise, The Data Science team uses metrics and experimentation to close the loop between software development and real-world performance. We analyze thousands of miles of driving every day to provide trustworthy estimates of the safety and comfort of the rider experience. We attribute failures on the road to functional areas and software components so engineers can focus on the highest-impact solutions. And we evaluate the results of integration tests to predict how the solutions will perform on the road before investing in expensive on-road tests.

  • A track record of leading multi-functional initiatives.
  • Familiarity with advanced techniques including Bayesian and sequential testing, causal inference, and graphical modeling.
