Who We Are

Nuro exists to better everyday life through robotics. The company’s custom electric autonomous vehicles are designed to bring the things you need—from produce to prescriptions—right to your home. Nuro’s autonomous, goods-focused solution can give you valuable time back and more freedom to do what you love. This convenient, eco-friendly alternative to driving has the potential to make streets safer and cities more livable. 

About the Role

The mandate of the learned behavior team is to use advanced machine learning techniques to accelerate software progress. In this role, you will work closely with the software vertical teams to understand their pain points and explore novel and advanced machine learning methods to solve practical real-world challenging problems. To name a few, using self-supervised learning to learn robust representations, exploring techniques for out-of-distribution detection to solve long tail problems, adjusting reinforcement learning techniques for motion planning, working on trajectory prediction and motion planning, investigating the robustness of models to mitigate uncertainties, or trying to build an end-to-end driving system. If you love solving challenging new problems with a mindset of deriving practical solutions to eventually be used on the vehicle, come join us!

About the Work

  • Research new machine learning problems and models

  • Work on goal-based, conditional, and joint trajectory prediction and motion planning

  • Mitigate the uncertainties accommodated through the Autonomy stack

  • Build effective and efficient ML data pipelines

  • Collaborate with autonomy teams to understand their pain points and priorities to define milestones of the corresponding roadmaps

  • Derive practical solutions and deploy them on the NuroBot

About You

You have deep expertise and prior experience in some or many of the following areas:

  • You have an M.Sc. plus 2-3 years of relevant work experience or a Ph.D. (preferable) focusing on one or more of the following areas: Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Mathematics, or a closely related field

  • You have subject matter expertise and research in one or more of the following areas: Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Robotics (preferable)

  • You have strong problem solving and programming skills in C++ or Python

  • Strong culture fit and good team player

  • Demonstrated research publications in any of the major conferences (RSS, ICRA, CoRL, CVPR, ICLR, ICML, NeurIPS, ICCV, AAAI, etc.)
