Senior Software Engineer

Job description

COMPANY

WaveSense is radically accelerating the arrival of self-driving vehicles by tackling some of the most challenging problems that stand in the way of safe and reliable navigation.


Every road in the world has a unique subsurface signature. WaveSense uses radar to create a map of those subsurface signatures from which self-driving cars can navigate. Vehicles using WaveSense are unaffected by common but challenging road conditions like snow, heavy rain, fog, or poor lane markings.


WaveSense is working with leading autonomous vehicle companies, is backed by leading investors, is growing quickly, and is building a talented team that wants to transform the future of mobility and work on some of the hardest and most important engineering problems around. If that sounds like you, please drop us a line.


ROLE

We're looking for a sharp and creative software engineer to lead WaveSense's software development. You’ll develop new software on a linux platform, write firmware, and design/implement API for the sensor. Your focus will be on developing commercial radar systems for autonomous vehicles. Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to support some of the leading companies in autonomous vehicles as they integrate WaveSense into their product.

 

WHO YOU ARE + WHAT YOU'LL DO

  • Further develop, design, and refine API for the WaveSense GPR.

  • You’re comfortable thinking about the big picture and the small details. You enjoy making design and architecture decisions.

  • Rapidly innovate to test and discard hypotheses.
