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:

Latitude Cloud Platform engineers create reusable architecture patterns for cloud engineering via infrastructure as code for Latitude teams to leverage as common shared components and educate Latitude teams on how to architect their solutions for scale, security, and reviewed changes through automation.

The Cloud Platform team interacts with engineering teams spanning from remote vehicle operations, ingest/data processing, mapping, labeling, triage, machine learning (detection, prediction, tracking), motion planning/control, offline simulation, and release/deployment teams to unify development practices and scalable efficiency of cloud/cloud native technologies.

This role is open to Pittsburgh, PA, Palo Alto, CA, Detroit, MI and some remote locations.

What you’ll do:

  • Design and implement scalable distributed systems in the cloud to facilitate the development of self-driving vehicles.
  • Contribute to self-driving vehicle log ingest/processing, simulation, and related applications to enable fully autonomous vehicles.
  • Take ownership of end-to-end processes and infrastructure automation for Latitude engineering teams to deploy services into the cloud and establish/advocate shared engineering patterns

What you'll need to succeed:

  • A degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Robotics or a related field.
  • Hands on development in Python, Go, or Java to create production level services that incorporate CI/CD.
  • Experience in using infrastructure as code to automate the creation of cloud resources. E.g. Terraform, CloudFormation, or others.
  • Strong experience with architecting/deploying scalable services and workloads in the cloud (AWS, GCP) and/or cloud native environments.
  • Strong experience with deployment management/scheduling/high availability/failure modes for distributed applications and compute workloads running on CPUs, GPUs, and/or TPUs.
  • Understand engineering design limitations and provide guidance for teams to scale their deployments in the cloud so that they can achieve desired performance within budget.
  • Experience creating reusable deployment patterns for teams to adopt, that incorporate networking, security, monitoring, logging, alerting, continuous integration and deployments.
  • Understanding of API specification languages (e.g. Open API 2.0/gRPC) and the ability to create reusable code via code generation, templates, and other rapid development techniques for teams to consume.
  • Leverage and modify open source tools to meet unique requirements for internal teams, including but not limited to Kubernetes, Prometheus, FluentD, Istio, Envoy, CoreDNS, etcd, Flux, among others

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
