Job Description

We are looking for a Principal Software Engineer for Autonomous Vehicles in the DRIVE Context Fusion team. In this role, you will help craft and guide the future of our autonomous driving solution for driving on fused signals between map and perception.

We seek extraordinary engineers who are passionate about building self-driving cars and who have a background in sensor fusion, computer vision, and embedded real-time software. Are you interested in inventing human level AI for navigation in the unconstrained world under any conditions? If so, join us!

What You'll Be Doing:

  • Develop core functionality for autonomous driving in all geographies based on the fusion of SOTA perception DNN and map signals.
  • Design and integrate algorithmic solutions into the core of NVIDIA AV.
  • Implement in-car fusion between map landmarks and sensor perceived landmarks into information relevant for driving.
  • Design and implement large-scale quality-measurement algorithms for in-car fusion algorithms.
  • Handle real-time system signals in the car running all over the world.
  • Write safe embedded software code to run in real-time systems.
  • Develop highly efficient product code in C++ and make use of algorithmic parallelism offered by GPGPU programming (CUDA).
  • Produce code and designs following automotive quality and safety standards.
  • Get into an OEM test vehicle to evaluate your new driving features on the road!

What We Need To See:

  • Software industry experience: 12+ years
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s in Computer Science or a related field.
  • Strong C++ development skills
  • Passion for robotics and autonomous vehicles
  • Drive to learn new things and tackle meaningful problems
  • Outstanding communication and cross-team collaboration
  • Independent and analytical software engineering skills
  • Ability to work in both Chinese and English languages.

Ways To Stand Out From The Crowd:

  • Technical leadership for a multi-team org and architecture for large components.
  • Background in 3D geometry, computer vision, or state estimation algorithms like Kalman filters, particle filters
  • Experience with mapping software in China (e.g., GCJ-02 coordinate system)
  • Runtime optimization of code using profilers
  • Strong API and framework design skills

We believe that building self-driving vehicles will be a defining contribution of our generation (e.g. traffic accidents are responsible for ~1.25 million deaths per year world-wide). We have the funding and scale, but we need your help on our team. NVIDIA is widely considered to be one of the technology world’s most desirable employers with some of the most forward-thinking people in the world working here. If you're entrepreneurial and autonomous, we want to hear from you!

NVIDIA is committed to fostering a diverse work environment and proud to be an equal opportunity employer. As we highly value diversity in our current and future employees, we do not discriminate (including in our hiring and promotion practices) on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, disability status or any other characteristic protected by law.
