Job Description

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.

Cruisers have the opportunity to grow and develop while learning from leaders at the forefront of their fields. With a culture of internal mobility, there's an opportunity to thrive in a variety of disciplines. This is a place for dreamers and doers to succeed.

If you are looking to play a part in making a positive impact in the world by advancing the revolutionary work of self-driving cars, join us.

Our systems need to be scalable, fast, reliable, and efficient in order to provide a great user experience. An end-to-end approach is required which includes integration between frameworks, systems, compilers, and HW architecture in order to execute state-of-the-art machine learning using hardware acceleration. As a Staff Technical Product Manager for Machine Learning Optimization, you will be responsible for building the tooling and solutions in deep learning optimization and quantization, which is crucial to E2E stack performance, efficiency and deployment velocity in both training and inference.

Product managers at Cruise work across infrastructure, platform, data science, and AV teams. In this role, you’ll work on delivering the tools, processes, and systems that enable faster and better experimentation, from a micro level with individual AV engineers, to a macro level across the entire AV stack and release process. You’ll work cross-functionally with engineering, design, program management, and operations to build out a roadmap to realize your vision. You’ll keep teams focused on what is most important for the company; setting priorities, defining requirements, and ensuring delivery.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Define and implement a next-generation AV testing and diagnosis strategy that powers Cruise’s autonomous vehicle, partnering with stakeholders across the organization
  • Leverage usability studies, data, industry innovation, and metrics to generate insights and improve AV performance and development speed
  • Collaborate with cross-functional partners across engineering, legal, security, safety and technical program management
  • Rapidly prioritize (and re-prioritize) product offerings based on impact, including defining clear success criteria so efforts are always focused around the most impactful work
  • Communicate roadmaps, priorities, experiments, and decisions clearly across a wide spectrum of audiences from internal customers to executives
  • Exemplify best-in-class product development and management practices in everything you touch

What you must have:

  • 8+ years of product management experience delivering highly impactful and innovative products at scale
  • 5+ years of prior product management experience managing solutions in E2E stack performance and ML acceleration/ optimization
  • Experience working with large scale enterprise or consumer products powered by AI/ML solutions
  • Experience formulating and driving a principled product vision, and owning the narrative with leadership and key stakeholders
  • Experience leading product development from zero to first release and beyond
  • An ability to make things happen around you: a bias to action, never hesitant to roll up your sleeves and get to work
  • A master disambiguator, bringing simplicity and measurable results to complex, ambiguous situations in fast-moving environments
  • The demonstrated ability to work independently and autonomously, with a career path that demonstrates increasing levels of responsibility
  • Deep understanding and empathy for users
  • Exceptional written and oral communication skills

Bonus Points!

  • Proven ability to partner effectively across functions with the ability to gain shared vision on challenging decisions and priority trade-offs
  • Solid fundamentals with knowledge of machine learning / deep learning algorithms, ML development workflow and algorithm design
  • Experience building/leading/developing/working on workflow automation, machine learning and scalable platforms
  • Familiarity with Big Data frameworks and experience working with data products
  • MS or PhD degree in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, or related technical field
  • MBA from a top program
