The role
The Senior Engineer, State Estimation will help architect and lead localization & state estimation efforts for Outrider’s fully electric, autonomy solution to automate freight yards.  We are looking for someone who knows how to design and develop state estimation capabilities from the ground up to help build a key pillar of our autonomous system for production deployment.

The ideal candidate will know the nuances of ground-vehicle state estimation and how to build that solution for Outrider’s use case in controlled and semi-controlled environments. We are tackling this with a cutting-edge sensor suite including LIDAR, RADAR, vision, encoders, and inertial sensors.  

This role is ideal for someone who wants to be a part of a small, impactful organization pushing use case focus autonomy into the mainstream. We are a team of builders that are passionate about start-to-finish, production-oriented development and taking our research into the real world.

Duties and responsibilities

  • Drive the full software development cycle for the localization, mapping, and calibration of our perception system as we build the next generation of autonomous vehicles
  • Take responsibility for leading efforts to formulate, implement, and evaluate localization, mapping, and calibration algorithms.
  • Stay informed about cutting edge best practices and implementation
  • Own a mission critical piece of our system to deliver autonomous systems into production While this is an accurate reflection of the position, Outrider reserves the right to require additional/different tasks to be performed as needed
  • Contribute generally to the growth and success of the Company and the building of a vibrant culture focused on the responsible deployment of zero-emission autonomous vehicle technology

Required qualifications

  • MS or PhD in computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering or related field
  • 5+ years of experience building production level C++ software for robotics applications in linux environments
  • Deep understanding of linear algebra, geometry, and probability
  • Experience performing sensor fusion with LIDARs, RADARs, cameras, GNSS and IMU
  • Experience with Kalman filters, bundle adjustment or factor graph optimization

Ideal qualifications

  • Curious/analytical nature and desire to build
  • PhD with publications related to state estimation
  • Previous experience with autonomous vehicles
  • Leadership experience in robotics applications
  • Deep understanding of ROS
  • Exposure to safety critical development
  • Experience in building from scratch high accuracy and mission critical state estimation components with proven outdoor performance across a wide variety of operational conditions.

An Insider's view of Outrider

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We’re fired up to solve the urgent problem of yard automation needed for a more resilient supply chain. No one walks alone at Outrider. If anyone is stuck or needs help, people line up to lend a helping hand. This is an interdisciplinary problem, so the best and brightest engineers across multiple areas of expertise must work together to solve it.

Michael Cutter

Principal Computer Vision Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

A typical day starts on the computer modeling robotic designs. Next, our team holds a daily standup to discuss progress and goals. Then, I assemble prototypes. During lunch, I mountain bike with coworkers on N. Table Mountain. The afternoon is my favorite -- testing the robots on our autonomous vehicles. I love watching robots do cool things.

Martin Sotola

Robotics Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

At first, I was overwhelmed by unfamiliar software, robotics, and logistics jargon and the fast pace. Hard work, hustle, and awesome co-workers reduced my learning curve. In no time, I was contributing and saw my responsibilities expand -- working with engineering, commercial team and customers. I’ve seen exponential growth in my career and myself.

Kayla Holcomb

Associate Project Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Daily, we’re solving complex, cutting-edge engineering problems. We encourage and welcome new and innovative ideas. In close collaboration with our customer-facing teams, engineering turns ideas into products that solve big pain points for very large companies. The majority of our team's ideas have morphed into solutions deployed at customer sites.

Dan Ambrosio

Senior Software Engineer and Head of Software Integration

What are some social events your company does?

When we’re not working or noshing on snacks provided in the kitchen, we’re sipping pints together in the brewery across the road. Many like to go hiking, running or mountain biking several days a week on N. Table Mountain also across the road. Others do Cross Fit or hang out socially outside of work. And, there’s a monthly company-sponsored lunch!
