Waymo is an autonomous driving technology company with a mission to make it safe and easy for people and things to get where they’re going. Since our start as the Google Self-Driving Car Project in 2009, Waymo has been focused on building the World’s Most Experienced Driver in hopes of improving the world’s access to mobility while saving thousands of lives now lost to traffic crashes. Our Waymo Driver powers Waymo One, our fully autonomous ride-hailing service, as well as Waymo Via, our trucking and local delivery service. To date, Waymo has driven over 20 million miles autonomously on public roads across 25 U.S. cities and conducted over 20 billion miles of simulation testing.
Software Engineering builds the brains of Waymo’s fully autonomous driving technology. Our software allows the Waymo Driver to perceive the world around it, make the right decision for every situation, and deliver people safely to their destinations. We think deeply and solve complex technical challenges in areas like robotics, perception, decision-making and deep learning, while collaborating with hardware and systems engineers. If you’re a software engineer or researcher who’s curious and passionate about Level 4 autonomous driving, we’d like to meet you.
The Machine Learning Infrastructure team at Waymo builds the industrial scale machine learning platform used by practitioners developing software for our autonomous vehicles. We provide data labeling tools and services, data visualization tools that provide insights, large scale training and evaluation frameworks, and low latency neural net inference runtimes for onboard execution and simulation. We work hand in hand with machine learning experts in all parts of the company including perception, behavior prediction, planning, mapping, hardware, and simulation.
Waymo interns work alongside leaders in the industry on projects that deliver significant impact to the company.
