As a vehicle test data analysis engineer at Zoox, you will dive deep in the data coming back from our fleet of vehicles in the field and prototypes driving on the test track. You will build tools and analyze data both to determine if the system meets our requirements and to validate the performance of our simulation tools. This role requires working across all parts of our stack in both simulation and real-world datasets including analyzing the signals within AI driving functions, the output of sensors, and the response of the dynamic response of the vehicle platform. 

Your work will be highly visible and on the critical path to enabling our driverless future. Everyday, you’ll work with a cross-functional team of vehicle test engineers, simulation tool developers, software engineers, system engineers, and more. Cross-functional collaboration will be key to successfully gathering data, generating analyses, validating simulation results, and driving continuous improvement of our tooling.

Vaccine Requirement
The Vehicle Test Data Analysis Engineer is required to be fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. An applicant is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine. Applicants will be required to show proof of vaccination status upon receipt of a conditional offer of employment. That conditional offer of employment will be conditioned upon, among other things, an Applicant’s ability to show proof of vaccination status. Please note the Company provides reasonable accommodations in accordance with applicable state, federal and local laws.
