Who we are:

At Glydways, we believe that mobility is a basic human right. Low-cost and ubiquitous access to affordable housing, employment, education, commerce and care lead to economic and social prosperity. As such our goal is to provide:

Public transit with the highest capacity, the best user experience, the lowest cost, and the lowest carbon footprint.

Our solution is a system of interconnected, profitable, and carbon footprint neutral transportation networks that uses standardized autonomous vehicles and a closed roadway. Together, they provide a 24/7 on-demand private mobility service without burdening the public with heavy upfront costs or annual system subsidies.

Meet the team:

As a part of the larger Autonomy Team, the Autonomy Architecture group is responsible for the high level design of the overall system (both online and offline). The team is composed of C++ experts who are comfortable around the whole autonomy stack. We empower other autonomy groups (through tooling and design), develop the simulator (making sure it meets the needs of the org), and maintain core functionality on-vehicle and in the dispatch system. The Autonomy Architecture team interfaces with many other groups across the org, including hardware and systems teams.

Roles & Responsibilities:

  • Develop interfaces between autonomy software components, sensors and other hardware modules, and the remote dispatch system.
  • Design, implement, and maintain simulation capabilities and metrics.
  • Maintain core onboard functionality around fault handling, vehicle communication, and top-level pipelines.
  • Work with hardware teams to develop low level onboard software interfaces.
  • Work onboard and offline to fix bugs across the stack.
  • Develop tooling to improve logged data processing (including visualization).
  • Participate in design review, planning, and code review.

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:

  • BS/MS in software related field, or 5 years of professional experience in software.
  • Strong experience with C++, including build systems (cmake/bazel), unit testing frameworks (gtest), and the C++20 standard library.
  • Experience designing and developing autonomous systems (including simulation, device drivers, visualization, etc).
  • Experience developing and debugging on Linux operating systems.
