Autonomous Vehicle Mapping start-up

Boston, MA

Strong base compensation, bonus, equity, benefits

Hybrid working


Our client is radically accelerating the arrival of self-driving vehicles by tackling some of the most challenging problems that stand in the way of safe and reliable navigation.

Every road in the world has a unique subsurface signature. Using radar to create a map of those subsurface signatures from which self-driving cars can navigate. Vehicles using our client's proprietary technology are unaffected by common but challenging road conditions like snow, heavy rain, fog, or poor lane markings.

They are working with leading autonomous vehicle and traditional automotive companies, is backed by leading investors, is growing quickly, and is building a talented team that wants to transform the future of mobility and work on some of the hardest and most important engineering problems around.
