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. 

You will join a team of developers that are building the software infrastructure for the testing and production of Aeva’s next-generation 4D LiDAR sensors. We’re a fast-growing team that is looking for someone with deep Python knowledge, and that is also passionate about building robust software that is scalable and user-friendly.
