Engineering Lead/Manager - Perception (ML)

Mountain View, CA
About us:
Aeva’s mission is to bring the next wave of perception to a broad range of applications from automated driving to industrial robotics, consumer electronics, consumer health, security, and beyond. Aeva is transforming autonomy with its groundbreaking sensing and perception technology that integrates all key LiDAR components onto a silicon photonics chip in a compact module. Aeva 4D LiDAR sensors uniquely detect instant velocity in addition to 3D position, allowing autonomous devices like vehicles and robots to make more intelligent and safe decisions. 

Role overview:
We are looking for a Perception Software Engineering Manager with experience leading software development teams developing DNN algorithms including CNNs (Convolutional Neural Networks) for feature detection and classification across a variety of perception sensing inputs. You will lead the perception software development and test efforts and 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 be doing:

  • Lead, manage and build a world-class AI team of software and algorithm engineers who design, develop, & validate robust DNN algorithms for detection & recognition of features based on multiple sensing inputs
  • Ensure the perception team delivers high quality architecture and design along with fast, reliable, and testable software
  • Work closely with business and product teams to gather requirements and drive the perception team’s goals to meet the product requirements
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with other software and systems teams to work towards customer deliverables and meet important product requirements

What you have:

  • 5+ years of experience managing a perception software team focused on developing ML algorithms based on DNNs
  • Proven track record of delivering on production quality perception stack
  • Good fundamentals in ML, mathematics, probability theory, estimation theory, and excellent problem-solving skills
  • Strong background and hands-on experience with software development in complex production-quality software in C++ and python
  • Willingness to learn, ability to communicate well, and demonstrate healthy drive and energy to understand and solve complex system-level problems

Nice to have:

  • Experience with designing and developing ML algorithms for lidar or radar point cloud streams
  • Experience reviewing requirements and delivering on perception software from OEMs and automotive customers
  • Experience with AUTOSAR, ASPICE and ISO-26262 compliment software development
  • Knowledge of working principles for radars / lidars
  • Experience optimizing algorithms for different embedded platforms including CUDA, ARM and SIMD processors

What's in it for you:

  • 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
