About us:
Aeva is building the next generation of sensing and perception for autonomous vehicles and beyond. With its unique ability to measure instantaneous velocity for each pixel, and long-range performance at high resolutions, while being free from LiDAR or sunlight interference, Aeva’s 4D LiDAR is built from the ground up at silicon photonics scale for mass-market applications.
Role Overview:
We are looking for a Senior Robotics Engineer with experience developing algorithms in state estimation, localization, or mapping for mobile robots. You will help with the architecture definition, design, development, and validation of our state estimation algorithms. You will have the opportunity to research & develop superior new algorithm architectures made possible only with our new & unique data streams.

What you'll be doing:

  • Design and develop state estimation algorithms using point cloud data and inertial sensors.
  • Analyze raw sensor data and generate performance metrics for the algorithms you will be developing.
  • Maintain comprehensive and accurate architecture & design documentation.

What you'll have:

  • At least 3 years of experience working on robotics problems such as state estimation, mapping, and localization.
  • Experience with 3D point clouds or depth images.
  • Highly skilled in C/C++ and Python.
  • Experience with Bayesian estimation techniques (e.g. EKF, UKF, etc).
  • Solid linear algebra and 3D geometry understanding.
  • Exceptional ability to break down and present complex problems.
  • Good communication skills and ability to work with cross-functional teams.

Nice to haves:

  • Developed SLAM algorithms using 3D point cloud.
  • ROS or other frameworks used in robotics.
  • Experience with CUDA parallel programming.
  • Point cloud registration knowledge.
  • Experience with sensor fusion of Lidar, GNSS, and IMU sensors.

What's in it for you:

  • Be part of a fast-paced and dynamic team
  • Very competitive compensation and meaningful stock grants
  • Exceptional benefits: Medical, Dental, Vision, and more
  • Unlimited PTO
