How would you build a vehicle that perceives what is happening in an off-road environment? Without compromising safety? A system that learns to navigate a solar farm, a mine, or refinery - all without GPS? And can then do the same on-road, delivering shopping in urban areas, or shuttling people around a city centre? We are building Universal Autonomy, we think differently, and would welcome you, if you would like to make the Earth move.

Are you a machine learning engineer, who is a deep learning expert working in perception? Do dynamic occupancy grids and laser pointclouds make your eyes light up? Maybe you’ve practised sensor fusion and employed classical object tracking techniques? If you care about safety, or have built safety-related systems then read on...

We are an international startup, scaling-up rapidly (250+ and growing). Our base is in Oxford, but we are hiring in multiple countries, and have hybrid and/or flexible work arrangements. The problems we are solving require diversity of thought, so we are committed to, and welcome diverse backgrounds and individuality.

The Role

Joining us as a Senior Machine Learning Engineer, you will be working in our “Perception” team. Initially focused on developing laser-based dynamic occupancy grid mapping, your role will work directly with your peers to solve autonomy challenges with a safety focus. You will develop techniques to generate self-supervised training data, at scale, using Python, as well as multimodal perception algorithms.


What you bring:

  • Deep learning expert working in Perception
  • Python: experience developing ML pipelines (from training to deployment)

Extra kudos if you have:

  • C++


What we provide:

  • Competitive salary
  • Company share programme
  • Hybrid and/or flexible work arrangements
  • £3,000 flexible benefits including private medical insurance, critical illness coverage, life assurance, EAP, group income protection
  • Funded relocation support
  • Fully funded Visa sponsorship if required
  • A salary exchange pension plan
  • 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays
  • A pet friendly office environment
  • Safe assigned spaces for team members with individual and diverse needs
