Staff Software Engineer, Map Algorithms (Intelligent Systems) (Visa Sponsorship Available)

Pittsburgh, PA, Palo Alto, CA, Metro Detroit, MI, Remote


Latitude AI is an automated driving technology company developing a hands-free, eyes-off driver assist system for next-generation Ford vehicles at scale. We’re driven by the opportunity to reimagine what it’s like to drive and make travel safer, less stressful, and more enjoyable for everyone. 

When you join the Latitude team, you’ll work alongside leading experts across machine learning and robotics, cloud platforms, mapping, sensors and compute systems, test operations, systems and safety engineering – all dedicated to making a real, positive impact on the driving experience for millions of people. 


As a Ford Motor Company subsidiary, we operate independently to develop automated driving technology at the speed of a technology startup. Latitude is headquartered in Pittsburgh with engineering centers in Dearborn, Mich., and Palo Alto, Calif.


Meet the team:


In the Intelligent Systems team, we convert photons into understanding, primarily via computer vision and machine learning. Our organization is responsible for all downstream tasks of the vehicle sensor suite onboard, as well as the full offboard/cloud infrastructure for machine learning at Latitude.


Come help us make the world safer, and driving more pleasant.


What you’ll do:


  • Collaborate with perception experts and experienced roboticist to build solutions that scale from the lab to the customer, for one of the largest-scale robotics projects in history.
  • Architect, design, and implement state of the art and beyond solutions in your domain- some example domains that are within our remit:
  • Design and implement algorithms to build HD maps from the grounds up. 
  • Evaluate those algorithms and iterate by designing and implementing relevant metrics.
  • Design and implement algorithms to compare different generations of map products across time.
  • Collaborate with engineers across teams to improve the maps. It requires not only developing algorithms to build good maps, but also understanding how the maps are consumed by different modules, so that sensible decisions can be made.


What you'll need to succeed:


  • Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field
  • Solid understanding of probability, geometry, linear algebra and graph theory.
  • Solid understanding of data structures and algorithms relevant to mapping, location based services, SLAM.
  • Solid programming skills and software engineering practice.
  • Knowledge of modern C++ and/or Python is a plus.
  • Strong communication, problem-solving, task-prioritization and teamwork skills
  • Experience in working with large and scalable systems is a plus


Nice to have:


  • Master’s or PhD degree in Robotics, ECE, Computer Science, or a related field.
  • Track record of technical leadership (not limited to management) taking products or large features from research to consumer release.


What we offer you:


  • Competitive compensation packages
  • High-quality individual and family medical, dental, and vision insurance
  • Health savings account with available employer match
  • Employer-matched 401(k) retirement plan with immediate vesting
  • Employer-paid group term life insurance and the option to elect voluntary life insurance
  • Paid parental leave
  • Paid medical leave
  • Unlimited vacation
  • 13 paid holidays
  • Complimentary daily lunches, beverages, and snacks
  • Pre-tax spending accounts for healthcare and dependent care expenses
  • Pre-tax commuter benefits
  • Monthly wellness stipend
  • Adoption/Surrogacy support program
  • Backup child and elder care program
  • Professional development reimbursement
  • Employee assistance program
  • Discounted programs that include legal services, identity theft protection, pet insurance, and more
  • Company and team bonding outlets: employee resource groups, quarterly team activity stipend, and wellness initiatives


Candidates for positions with Latitude AI must be legally authorized to work in the United States on a permanent basis. Verification of employment eligibility will be required at the time of hire. Visa sponsorship is available for this position.


We are an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to a culturally diverse workforce. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, religion, color, age, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status or protected veteran status.


At Latitude, the health and safety of our employees is our top priority. Vaccination has been proven to play a critical role in combatting COVID-19. As a result, Latitude has made the decision to require U.S. employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless employees require an accommodation for religious or medical reasons. Being fully vaccinated means that an individual is at least two weeks past their final dose of an authorized COVID-19 vaccine regimen. As a condition of employment, newly hired employees will be required to provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination or an approved medical or religious exemption.

Latitude AI is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ford Motor Company that develops automated driving technologies.
