As the momentum in autonomous driving and driverless vehicles is continuing to accelerate, we are enabling autonomous and semi-autonomous mobility solutions by providing innovative core technology and capabilities that span the cloud, and vehicle.
The Highly Automated Driving (HAD) group is a team of engineers, architects, designers and inventors that create highly accurate, real-time and high-definition map data that support autonomous driving and driverless vehicles. They are pioneers of their craft, who love to turn \"the impossible\" into \"the feasible\" with research, analysis, prototyping via scaling and automation. They develop technology that makes autonomous driving, personalized navigation, and augmented reality a part of everyday life. We are looking for forward-thinking minds and amazing talent to join this team in technology delivery and continuous innovation, as their success highly depends on having efficient/integrated systems from research all the way to production.
HAD is looking for a Director of Engineering and site leader for our product development site in Boulder, continuing your success in fast growth, global, sophisticated technology and \"start-up like\" cultures.
The Director of Engineering recognizes the \"ambiguity\" of a transforming company going through high growth, new technology and new processes. This leader will develop strong working relationships with internal and external customers and collaborate with Product Management and the sales organization to demonstrate customer guidance, market trends and bold intelligence in development efforts. Your charter is focused on the research, production and scaling of the technology for solutions for autonomous driving. The current activities are focused across a number of technology areas including software design, sensor fusion, real-time localization, SLAM, and large-scale data analysis and synthesis. This role will be leading a team of engineers located in Boulder, Berkeley, and Chicago and will report directly to the VP (and Head) of Highly Autonomous Driving (HAD).
Your additional responsibilities as site leader for our Boulder office will include being a voice of all employees located at this key development site, advocating for their needs and the workplace as such.
