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

Simulation is at the core of autonomy development. The Sim Core team is responsible for building the core simulator that powers all simulations at Nuro, allowing us to develop and test our autonomous driving technology in a repeatable and scalable manner. The team focuses on tackling various challenges associated with executing the autonomy system in a fully virtual setting - from data integration and orchestration, to performance and resource optimization, to framework and interface design - collaborating with teams across the company to set and expand the range of what’s possible to simulate.

About the Work

  • Expand the functionality, performance, and usability of our core simulator
  • Design and build solutions to unify and simplify the interactions of complex systems
  • Work across a large array of potential efforts, ranging from new greenfield projects to expanding/scaling existing systems.
  • Work closely with teams that use simulation, including evaluation/metrics teams, autonomy engineers, and systems engineers.
  • Drive extensive collaborations with other teams and cross-functional stakeholders to deliver integrated solutions, especially teams that build the infrastructure that simulation depends on.

About You

  • You have 3+ years of experience working in software engineering or related fields.
  • You are a talented software developer with experience in C++ and Python.
  • You enjoy tackling challenges in new problem spaces, solving pivotal problems, and building real solutions that bring your ideas to life.
  • You thrive in a highly-collaborative environment, working effectively with engineers, PMs, and other stakeholders on project ideas, prioritization, and execution.
  • You have a high standard of technical excellence, and have experience maintaining and raising the technical bar for your team.
  • You’re experienced with all stages of a project’s lifecycle. You can quickly take a project from zero to one or scale an existing one up to be relied upon in critical pipelines and workflows.
  • You have start-up DNA: You have demonstrated an ability to thrive in the ambiguity of a dynamic, start-up environment or have the DNA to do so.
  • You are passionate about bettering everyday life through robotics.

Bonus Points 

  • Previous experience in simulation for autonomous vehicles or other areas of autonomous vehicle development.
