Perception Lead

Mountain View, CA
About us:
Aeva is building the next generation of sensing and perception for autonomous vehicles and beyond. With its unique ability to measure instantaneous velocity for each pixel, long-range performance at high resolutions, while being free from LiDAR or sunlight interference, Aeva’s 4D LiDAR is built from the ground up at silicon photonics scale for mass-market applications.

Role Overview:
We are looking for a Perception Engineer Lead with experience developing DNN algorithms including CNNs (Convolutional Neural Networks) for feature detection and classification across a variety of perception sensing inputs. You will help with architecture definition, design, development, and validation of our core perception software algorithms.

You will have the opportunity to research & develop superior new algorithm architectures made possible only with our new & unique data streams.

What you'll do

  • As a Lead Perception Engineer, you will design, develop & validate robust DNN algorithms for detection & recognition of features based on multiple sensing inputs
  • You will work with entirely new input dimensions that are yet to exist and will develop algorithms for such new inputs
  • Maintain comprehensive and accurate architecture & design documentation
  • Help build a world-class AI team

What you have

  • Minimum 6 years of industry experience with leadership experience
  • Proven track record with developing & deploying DNN algorithms on robots systems including CNNs & RNNs
  • Experience developing perception software algorithms with vision and point cloud inputs
  • Fluent in Python and a good understanding of C/C++
  • Strong foundations in mathematics & statistics
  • Exceptional ability to break-down and present complex problems to small audiences


  • Experience deploying perception systems on edge devices.
  • Multi-modal perception systems
  • Experience with object motion & tracking algorithms
  • Experience with classical computer vision techniques and point cloud processing

What's in it for you

  • Be part of a fast paced and dynamic team
  • Very competitive compensation and meaningful stock grants
  • Exceptional benefits: Medical, Dental, Vision, and more
  • Unlimited PTO: We care about results, not punching timecards
