Senior Embedded Software Architect

Our partner is an autonomous vehicle sensor and software company with the vision to make autonomy safe and ubiquitous by delivering the only lidar and associated software that meets the industry’s stringent performance, safety, and economic requirements. The technology enables both detections and classification of objects out to 250 meters, from cars to lanes. It even understands what “dark” objects are at night, like a black car or a tire on the road that has minimal reflectivity. The company serves customers worldwide, including 8 of the top 10 global automotive OEMs.
