The machine learning metrics team focuses on data-driven metrics development for systems and subsystems to guide training and evaluation of our neural networks and autonomous vehicle stack components. The team charter is centered around three core concepts. First: how should we score the AV system as a whole in a way that is compliant with legal, ethical and ride comfort related constraints? Second: given such a system level score, how do we score subsystems in a way that informs progress towards the system level goals? Third: how do we quickly obtain such system level metrics via large scale simulation?

What we're looking for:

An Insider's view of Motional

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

For the past 15 months we've been a remote organization, hiring 450 remote team members across our global organization. We recognize as we start our return to normalcy, we must remain flexible and continue to evolve, understanding that balance is essential. There is a conscious, respectful and phased out approach being made by each team leader.
