Waymo is an autonomous driving technology company with the mission to be the most trusted driver. Since its start as the Google Self-Driving Car Project in 2009, Waymo has focused on building the Waymo Driver—The World's Most Experienced Driver™—to improve access to mobility while saving thousands of lives now lost to traffic crashes. The Waymo Driver powers Waymo One, a fully autonomous ride-hailing service, and can also be applied to a range of vehicle platforms and product use cases. The Waymo Driver has provided over one million rider-only trips, enabled by its experience autonomously driving tens of millions of miles on public roads and tens of billions in simulation across 13+ U.S. states.

Want to build the next generation of infrastructure for driverless cars?

Join the Waymo Commercialization team, and help design the future of transportation! We are looking for a passionate Senior SWE who wants to help build the systems that manage and optimize Waymo's core ride hailing and fleet management systems.

The ideal candidate is someone who can be self-sufficient and product-minded. You will be working on cross-cutting problems that will require strong cross-team collaboration, both technically (mobile app, cloud backends, and the Waymo Driver) and functionally (operations, product, legal, partnerships, policy & privacy) to develop and deliver business critical infrastructure.

In this role, you'll:

  • Help build and evolve one or more mission-critical commercialization tools and systems
  • Collaborate with Product, UX, and other engineering teams to develop systems and processes as business needs grow and evolve
  • Solve hard, real-world problems such as demand planning, pickup / dropoff optimization, fleet optimization, field escalation handling, and more

At a minimum we'd like you to have:

  • BS degree in Computer Science or equivalent practical experience
  • 5+ years of backend or infrastructure experience

It's preferred if you have:

  • Experience with C++ (or a willingness to learn)
  • Passion for working in cross functional environments that include nontechnical stakeholders
  • Experience with operations tooling, developer productivity, or developer tools
