Zoox is looking for software engineers to breathe life into our virtual cities with intelligent agents - the vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, and more! You will make our simulated agents so realistic and capable, that we can set up and test against all potential encounters for our self-driving software.


  • Design and implement intelligent simulated agent behaviors to model the full range of human actions
  • Quantify and improve how realistically the simulated agents behave
  • Learn the distribution of agent behaviors from real-world driving data, and replicate them in simulation


  • 4+ years experience in the video game industry with C++
  • Mathematics skills, including trigonometry and linear algebra
  • A BS in Computer Science or a similar discipline.

Bonus Qualifications

  • Experience in traffic simulation, motion planning, pathfinding, or crowd simulation
  • GPU programming
  • Familiarity with Python
  • Experience in automotive, robotics, data science, or machine learning
