NVIDIA has become the platform upon which every new AI-powered application is built. From healthcare research applications to autonomous vehicles, or voice-recognition systems, the need for advanced perception and cognitive capabilities is exploding... and NVIDIA is right in the center of this revolution.

This is a Distinguished Engineer / Architect role that will focus on building and scaling NVIDIA's AV Test Infrastructure and Platforms. As our AV program grows, enabling our internal team to develop AV software is a top priority, as well as enabling our program partners (several major OEMs) to help build our AV code base. At the core of our AV development strategy is the use of virtual testing, including NVIDIA DRIVE Sim (best-in-class AV simulator based on NVIDIA Omniverse), and NVIDIA DRIVE Constellation, a dedicated platform for running software-in-the-loop (SIL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation with DRIVE Sim. We are looking for a technical leader to design and build our simulation and replay capabilities, including the underlying cloud infrastructure, SIL/HIL backends, test execution and debugging frameworks, test tooling, and more.

What you'll be doing:

  • Lead the architectural design and implementation

  • Define and deliver the group's technical strategies and roadmaps

  • Partner with our AV leadership to deliver a cohesive product to customers

  • Engage external OEM partners on integration requirements

What we need to see:

  • MS or PhD or related experience in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or related field (or equivalent experience)

  • 10+ years of experience in performance and/or real-time software technical leadership roles in an agile software development environment

  • 15+ years of demonstrated ability in debugging, performance analysis, and testing system design

  • Highly proficient in simulation, AV/robotics stacks, infrastructure (cloud and on-prem), and user-productivity software

  • Deep understanding of building successful platforms and tools for developers in a large scale environment

  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to lead multi-functional efforts

With highly competitive salaries and a comprehensive benefits package, NVIDIA is widely considered to be one of the technology world’s most desirable employers. We have some of the most forward-thinking and hardworking people in the world working for us and our engineering teams are growing fast in some of the hottest innovative fields: Deep Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Autonomous Vehicles.

Our work opens up new universes to explore, enables amazing creativity and discovery, and powers what were once science fiction inventions from artificial intelligence to autonomous cars. NVIDIA is looking for great people like you to help us accelerate the next wave of artificial intelligence. If you're passionate about autonomous vehicles, we would love to hear from you!

The base salary range is $304,000 - $460,000. Your base salary will be determined based on your location, experience, and the pay of employees in similar positions.
