Job Description:

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.
