Autonomous Vehicle Simulation Engineer


We are now looking for an Autonomous Vehicle Simulation Engineer:

Widely considered to be one of the technology world’s most desirable employers, NVIDIA is an industry leader with groundbreaking developments in High-Performance Computing, Artificial Intelligence and Visualization. The GPU, our invention, serves as the visual cortex of modern computers and is at the heart of our products and services. Our work opens up new universes to explore, enables amazing creativity and discovery and powers what were once science fiction inventions from artificial intelligence to autonomous cars.

Imagine being able to test an autonomous vehicle in a near-infinite variety of conditions and scenarios—before it even reaches the road. NVIDIA is making it happen, enabling the industry to safely drive billions of miles in virtual reality with the powerful new NVIDIA DRIVE™ Constellation AV simulator.

DRIVE Constellation uses photorealistic simulation to create a safer, more scalable, and more cost-effective way to bring self-driving cars to our roads. It uses the computing horsepower of two different servers to deliver a revolutionary cloud-based computing platform, capable of generating billions of miles of autonomous vehicle testing.

What You’ll Be Doing:

  • As a member of our Autonomous Vehicle team, you will work on simulator for end to end testing of software & hardware for autonomous driving.
  • Develop scenario or use case based mechanisms for implementing and running large number of test scenarios
  • Work with customers and partners for simulator
  • You will collaborate with a diverse team of engineers encompassing the entire NVIDIA Automotive platform. As such, you should have a track record of working well across organizations
  • Strong communication skills are required

What We Need To See:

  • A bachelor’s degree in computer science, electrical engineering, computer engineering or have a technical degree with 5+ years of industry experience.
  • You demonstrate excellent C/C++ programming, software design, and debugging skills in a Linux environment.
  • Experience with a scripting language (Python, Bash, etc.)
  • Some familiarity with embedded platforms and system software
  • Ability to write technical documentation

Ways To Stand Out From The Crowd:

  • Deep understanding with Unreal Engine, Unity Game Development Simulator
  • Familiarity with industrial and scientific simulators and their software architecture.
  • Prior knowledge with descriptive interface i.e. XML, YAML etc for simulation applications and opensource applications desirable
  • Worked on Web based UI development for large scale testing, reporting and analytics
  • Expertise with Database technologies
  • Experience with software traceability for testing highly reliable software systems
  • Passionate about helping to ensure the reliability of a safety critical system
  • Deep understanding of technology and passionate about what you do
  • Strong collaborative and interpersonal skills, specifically a proven ability to effectively guide and influence within a dynamic matrix environment

We believe that realizing self-driving cars will be a defining contribution of our generation (e.g. traffic accidents are responsible for ~1.25 million deaths per year world-wide). We have the funding and scale, but we need your help on our team.
