Posted on: June 6, 2021
Rivian is on a mission to keep the world adventurous forever.
This goes for the emissions-free Electric Adventure Vehicles we
build, and the curious, courageous souls we seek to attract.
As a company, we constantly challenge what's possible, never
simply accepting what has always been done. We reframe old
problems, seek new solutions and operate comfortably in areas that
are unknown. Our backgrounds are diverse, but our team shares a
love of the outdoors and a desire to protect it for future
We operate development centers in Plymouth, Michigan; Southern
California (Irvine, Carson & LA); Silicon Valley (San Jose and Palo
Alto); Vancouver, British Columbia; and Surrey, England; as well as
a manufacturing facility in Normal, Illinois.
As a Deep Learning Engineer you will be part of the Perception
team at Rivian. Our perception team is a diverse group of algorithm
developers focused on creating a real-time virtual representation
of the local environment around the autonomous vehicle as well as
determining where the vehicle is in the world, both globally and
relative to its environment. This is accomplished by various
detection algorithms on sensors (cameras/lidars/radars). The data
from multiple sensors including cameras, radars, LIDARs, GPS, IMU,
and ultrasonic sensors are then fused to create a complete
understanding of the surroundings.
- In this role, you will be involved in developing models for
object detection/classification, free space estimation on various
cameras placed around the vehicle and work on the infrastructure
needed for data collection, training and validation.
- You will also get exposure to migrating these models to a
real-time embedded system, prototyping on autonomous vehicles,
testing, and completing functional safety and productization
- Experience with training and network optimization
- Experience in automotive applications
- Prototyping real-time applications
