We are building the world’s most advanced self-driving vehicles to safely connect people to the places, things, and experiences they care about. We believe self-driving vehicles  will help save lives, reshape cities, give back time in transit, and restore freedom of movement for many.

  • Knowledge of attack surfaces for common enterprise systems and services.
  • Experience with Terraform, git, and configuration as code.
  • Experience with AWS, GCP, or other cloud infrastructure providers.
