Software Engineer – Data Processing

Just as safety, data is key for how Zenuity develops software for ADAS and self-driving cars. Gb/s streams in cars quickly accumulates to petabytes of data in our data centers. Managing and processing this is a major challenge: Zenuity needs you!

What you will do

When developing our world leading algorithms for the automotive industry, Zenuity sets tough requirements on data quality. To detect the surroundings of the car with high enough accuracy we use many different sensors including high-resolution cameras, radars, LiDARs, ultrasonic sensors and positioning systems. The data rates generated by these sensors reaches over 15 Gbit/s which quickly accumulates to petabytes of data divided over millions of files. In order to be able to navigate in and generate value from this huge dataset we need to be experts in data processing and management. 

Zenuity has several teams working in the area of data processing and High-Performance Computing, and you will be part of team Totoro that is responsible for handling data for Zenuity's in-house development cars. Team Totoro works on data logging in the vehicles, data uploading, data post-processing tools and pipelines, and data indexing using a mix of in-house software and commercial hardware and software.
