We’re Cruise, the self-driving ride-hailing service.
We are building the world’s most advanced self-driving vehicles to safely connect people to the places, things, and experiences they care about. We believe self-driving vehicles will help save lives, reshape cities, give back time in transit, and restore freedom of movement for many.
At Cruise, our engineers have opportunities to grow and develop while learning from leaders at the cutting-edge of their fields. With a culture of internal mobility, there's opportunity to thrive in a variety of disciplines. This is a place for dreamers and doers to succeed.
If you are looking to solve one of today’s most complex engineering challenges, see the results of your work in hundreds of self-driving cars, and make a positive impact in the world starting in our cities, join us.
We are looking for a talented Technical Program Manager to join the Robotics TPM group in San Francisco. The Robotics department owns a significant area of the Autonomous Vehicle (AV) software stack as well as the teams that manage our release process as well as the Embedded Systems teams.
A little bit about the teams within this department.
The AV Robotics teams work closely with the Perception teams and manage the interface between prediction and planning and use destination inputs from the customer, planning provides a route, decides how to handle obstacles along this route and generates a path to follow down the road. The Embedded Systems team writes and supports drivers, the operating system, hardware abstraction, testing on hardware, and launching the software on the vehicle. The Release Management builds processes that enable safe continuous AV improvement and are responsible for technical analysis of all AV behavioral issues. Finally, the Localization & Mapping (LLCM) team is responsible for providing accurate six degrees of freedom vehicle pose estimates in real-time to all other software modules running on the AV (planning, perception, etc.), as well as accurate 3D/2D lidar map representations of each of our cities of operation.
As the Sr TPM, you will be responsible for managing technical programs, scheduling milestones, and defining acceptance criteria to ensure successful on-time delivery. TPMs are responsible for the “when” and the “how” of the program, and hold their teams accountable to deliver on research and engineering projects to achieve business objectives.
