GPR is radically accelerating the arrival of self-driving vehicles
by tackling some of the most challenging problems that stand in the
way of safe and reliable navigation.
Every road in the world has a unique subsurface signature. GPR uses
radar to create a map of those subsurface signatures from which
self-driving cars can navigate. Vehicles using GPR are unaffected
by common but challenging road conditions like snow, heavy rain,
fog, or poor lane markings. GPR is working with leading autonomous
vehicle and traditional automotive companies, is backed by leading
investors, is growing quickly, and is building a talented team that
wants to transform the future of mobility and work on some of the
hardest and most important engineering problems around. If that
sounds like you, please drop us a line.
As the GPR Mapping Lead, you will drive GPR's mapping team, shape
strategy and help form partnerships. You will work with the cloud
team to design and build a scalable mapping infrastructure
worldwide. You will work with your team and others to integrate
radar-based map and sensor fusion-based localization algorithms
into the cloud and vehicle systems. You will be responsible for
developing the mapping roadmap, managing and growing a team of
talented engineers to develop worldwide capabilities.
