Systems Engineer - Modeling and Simulation

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 systems engineer with a focus on developing statistical models for optical, optomechanical and electrical systems

What you'll do:

  • Design and develop models for optical and electrical components in the system including transceiver chain and propagation channel
  • Collect data in various scenes and weather conditions to validate and fine-tune model parameters
  • Build tools to predict accurate end-to-end system performance based on the developed models
  • Participate in the team's development processes, including requirements and design documentation, test-plan generation and execution, peer design and code reviews, process feedback, and improvements

What you have:

  • Bachelor degree with 5+ years or a masters degree with 3+ years of industry experience working on statistics and system modeling
  • 3+ years of experience in developing statistical models for Optical, RF, and electrical systems with a focus on characterizing system performance
  • Strong familiarity with developing in simulation platforms such as Matlab or Python
  • Good fundamentals in mathematics, statistics, probability theory, estimation theory, and excellent problem-solving skills
  • 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 working on Lidar transceiver modeling
  • A working understanding of digital signal processing and algorithm design
  • Knowledge of working principles for radars/lidars
  • Experience building automation tools for data collection and analysis

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
