The National Instruments Transportation Systems R&D, Simulation team has an immediate opening for a Software Engineer. In this role, you will work with diverse technologies used in testing, validating, and developing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving Systems. Some technologies you will have the opportunity to work with are C++17, Unreal Engine 4/5, Computer Vision, CUDA, Graphics Shader programming (HLSL/GLSL), RDMA, DDS, gRPC, Sensor Simulation Physics, PhysX, Intelligent Agent Path Planning, AI Robotic Simulation and much more. In this role you will design and develop features from concept to release in a modern Agile workflow. We are looking for talented developers to contribute to our core code base. We simulate every major sensor technology in use by the automotive market today, Radar from ray trace to DSP, Lidars from MEMS to spinning, Cameras from rectilinear to 360 degrees, ultrasonic from ray trace to DSP, and much more.


To learn more about the monoDrive simulation platform you can checkout our website at https://www.monodrive.io/ and the documentation https://monodrive.readthedocs.io/en/latest/. Our team consists of perception experts and real-time developers focused on generating high-fidelity simulation technologies that provide life-like sensor data to ADAS and Autonomous Driving systems. We are blurring the lines between the real and virtual world in the exciting new industry of autonomous vehicles.
