It is a critical set of information to make the smartest safe decisions on the road.

  • Design, plan, and implement future improvements of the mapping backend system  for scalability and performance
  • Work with large-scale point cloud, image, and other sensor data to build maps for our growing fleet of self-driving cars

  • Provide guidance and mentorship to team to build cloud competencies
  • Write high quality, idiomatic, and maintainable code

Education and Experience we hope you'll come with:

  • 3+ years of experience in architecting, designing, and implementing cloud solutions on AWS
  • Familiarity with Docker, containerization technology, and Kubernetes
  • Familiarity with Serverless Architectures

  • Good knowledge of Python or C++ and OOP principles
  • Good knowledge of a particular development ecosystem, such as developing modules, publishing packages and using various dev tools (linting, code analysis)
  • Ability to articulate ideas to non-technical audience

Bonus points for:

  • Knowledge of geospatial data, libraries, and tools
  • Prior experience with HD Maps and/or mapping for self-driving cars

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.
