Imagine a vehicle that can drive in either direction, that is fully symmetrical, and where the passengers sit in a carriage arrangement.  The front row occupant is rearward facing.  Now, imagine the restraint system can protect all four passengers at NCAP 5 start performance levels.  In this role, you will be responsible for the design, release, and launch of a new generation of passive restraint systems for Zoox's autonomous vehicles. You will support the development and help integrate restraint performance to deliver this complete system, rather than just components.
Zoox is setting the bar for autonomous vehicle safety.  Come join the team!
