Job Title

Senior Software Engineer, Java/Python Backend, Log Applications

Job Description

Argo AI was founded to tackle one of the most challenging applications in computer science, robotics and artificial intelligence with self-driving vehicles. Argo AI is developing and deploying the latest advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning and computer vision to help build safe and efficient self-driving vehicles that enable these transformations and more. The challenges are significant, but we are a team that believes in tackling hard, meaningful problems to improve the world.

We are building a high-performance team that is excited by complex engineering challenges and is passionate about making transportation safer, more affordable and accessible for all.

The Log Apps team extracts knowledge from that data and delivers it for in-house teams to use when analyzing the fleet of cars on the road and improving our product. The team also owns significant infrastructure for creating and managing the many thousand simulations Argo executes.
