Job Description

Latitude AI is an automated driving technology company developing a hands-free, eyes-off driver assist system for next-generation Ford vehicles at scale. We’re driven by the opportunity to reimagine what it’s like to drive and make travel safer, less stressful, and more enjoyable for everyone.

When you join the Latitude team, you’ll work alongside leading experts across machine learning and robotics, cloud platforms, mapping, sensors and compute systems, test operations, systems and safety engineering – all dedicated to making a real, positive impact on the driving experience for millions of people.

As a Ford Motor Company subsidiary, we operate independently to develop automated driving technology at the speed of a technology startup. Latitude is headquartered in Pittsburgh with engineering centers in Dearborn, Mich., and Palo Alto, Calif.

Meet the team:

The Software Development Tools team is responsible for the tools and workflows that Latitude’s world-class software engineers use on a regular basis. We build innovative tools and workflows that make it easier for developers to build great software, covering diverse areas such as debugging, profiling, code editing, and static analysis. If you love diving into new areas of a tech stack and making a difference, this is the place for you!

As a member of the team, you will work closely with other engineers to understand their workflows, and help identify rough spots in the software development process. You’ll help design, implement, and maintain high impact tools that deliver incredible value to your fellow developers throughout the company. You’ll help develop and implement lightweight processes that promote code quality high while letting developers move fast. You will need creativity, initiative, attention to detail, and a deep desire to dive in and make things better for your fellow engineers.

What you'll do:

  • Engage cross functionally with other engineers to understand workflows and explore ideas about how to improve them
  • Design, implement, deliver, and maintain innovative tools that address those needs
  • Work closely with your teammates to brainstorm approaches to problems and determine high impact solutions
  • Deliver metrics and supporting infrastructure to monitor our development environment and the quality of our tooling
  • Work with various APIs to interface external tools with our code
  • Write robust, highly tested, well-crafted code
  • Work in cooperation with other teams at Latitude to improve common infrastructure and meet the needs of software developers
  • Help level up the team by learning and teaching new techniques and technologies

What you'll need to succeed:

  • Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field preferred
  • Excellent technical communication and collaboration skills
  • Strong skills and deep knowledge of at least one language (Python or C++)
  • A great attitude, a passion for supporting your fellow engineers, the creativity to come up with new approaches, and the initiative to make it happen
  • Ability to deliver and support high impact, reliable tools in fast moving environments
  • Strong abilities in some combination of C++, Python, SQL, frontend and/or backend web technologies, and various cloud technologies (AWS, GCP, etc). You certainly don't have to be an expert in everything, but you should be willing to quickly learn and adapt new or unfamiliar technologies
  • A strong background in data structures, algorithms, and performance is helpful

What we offer you:

  • Competitive compensation packages
  • High-quality individual and family medical, dental, and vision insurance
  • Health savings account with available employer match
  • 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
  • 13 paid holidays
  • Complimentary daily lunches, beverages, and snacks
  • Pre-tax spending accounts for healthcare and dependent care expenses
  • Pre-tax commuter benefits
  • Monthly wellness stipend
  • Adoption/Surrogacy support program
  • Backup child and elder care program
  • Professional development reimbursement
  • 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

Candidates for positions with Latitude AI must be legally authorized to work in the United States on a permanent basis. Verification of employment eligibility will be required at the time of hire. Visa sponsorship is available for this position.

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to a culturally diverse workforce. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, religion, color, age, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status or protected veteran status.

At Latitude, the health and safety of our employees is our top priority. Vaccination has been proven to play a critical role in combatting COVID-19. As a result, Latitude has made the decision to require U.S. employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless employees require an accommodation for religious or medical reasons. Being fully vaccinated means that an individual is at least two weeks past their final dose of an authorized COVID-19 vaccine regimen. As a condition of employment, newly hired employees will be required to provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination or an approved medical or religious exemption.
