We're Cruise, a self-driving service designed for the cities we love.

We’re building the world’s most advanced, self-driving vehicles to safely connect people to the places, things, and experiences they care about. We believe self-driving vehicles will help save lives, reshape cities, give back time in transit, and restore freedom of movement for many.

Cruisers have the opportunity to grow and develop while learning from leaders at the forefront of their fields. With a culture of internal mobility, there's an opportunity to thrive in a variety of disciplines. This is a place for dreamers and doers to succeed.

If you are looking to play a part in making a positive impact in the world by advancing the revolutionary work of self-driving cars, join us.

The Embedded Systems team develops the first layers of software on the car from interfacing with hardware to moving large amounts of data up the software stack. As a Senior Software Engineer, you’ll be responsible for designing, documenting, and implementing complex, highly scalable, low-latency software in C++ on Linux-based systems. Your work will be the foundational software upon which the rest of Cruise builds.

  • Develop software in C++ to interface the Cruise autonomy stack with the sensors and custom hardware on the vehicle
  • Improve and deliver reliable software through requirements generation, continuous integration, automated testing, issue tracking, and code reviews
  • Collaborate with colleagues across multiple teams and mentor other developers
  • Deliver complex projects through incremental development
What you must have:
  • 5+ years of experience writing production-quality software
  • Experience with C++11 or later
  • Knowledge of and experience applying software standard methodologies
Bonus Points!
  • Experience working with Lidars and with motion sensing devices such as GNSS, IMUs, and wheel encoders
  • Experience developing on and for embedded Linux / POSIX systems
  • Demonstrated experience building, testing, and shipping production software
  • Experience with safety-critical development (FDA, FAA, Automotive)
  • Experience with embedded build systems, such as buildroot or yocto
  • Experience with networking
  • Experience with ROS or other robotics middleware platforms
  • Experience with other languages: C, Python, Bash, Go
