As an intern developing code for our integration testing framework, you'll be expanding a system that interacts with all elements of our cutting edge AI software stack as well as sensor and compute hardware. We are responsible for developing and supporting automated test frameworks focused on high-level system integration testing. Our team works across the software organization to guide teams in determining system requirements and developing testing methodologies.

We're looking for interns who have strong software engineering skills in Python and C++, and have experience with complex systems. Autonomous vehicles have some of the largest, most complex software ever shipped in a safety-critical environment, and you will be developing software and solving problems that have a significant impact on this effort.

If you're looking for a role where you get to work across the entire AI, sensor, and compute stacks for an autonomous vehicle, and you love building robust simulation and validation tools, this role is for you.
