About the role

About Hypermile.AI

We are building an energy-efficient Autopilot for trucks and heavy goods vehicles (HGVs). That way they are safer, more fuel-efficient and easier to control. Our solution can be retrofitted to existing trucks and is designed to augment the drivers’ skills. Think better Tesla Autopilot, but for trucks. We are backed by Y Combinator (investors in Stripe, Cruise and AirBnB), Accel, Greg Brockman and many others. We have received Innovate UK and Horizon 2020 funding.

We are unique in Europe and we are solving one of the greatest challenges of our time. The company was founded by engineers so we focus on prototyping and shipping quality products. We are building a world-class team that is mission-driven and motivated by the impact and practicality, not theoretical results like many of our competitors.

We are looking for a talented Senior Software Engineer to join our team of four highly talented engineers. We are a team of 5 including people with PhDs from UCL, people who worked at Lyft Level 5, Graphcore, Amazon, Microsoft and an author of a textbook on GANs. We are remote friendly but you need to be based in the UK and will open up our London office in 2021.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Cross-functional collaboration with software, mechanical, and integration engineering teams
  • Writing, testing and maintaining C, C++ and Python code
  • Write software that sits on a device with limited CPU/RAM resources, not (just) in a cloud environment
  • Reverse engineering for the purposes of integration with other Electronic Control Units (ECUs)

What you must have 70%+ of:

  • BS or MS in electrical engineering, computer engineering, physics or equivalent with focus on electronics and computer systems
  • 3+ years of experience in C/C++ programming
  • 3+ years of professional work experience
  • Deep knowledge of Linux (kernels etc.)
  • CAN/J1939 experience
  • Experience with the product development life cycle from inception to production
  • Reverse engineering for the purposes of integration with other Electronic Control Units (ECUs)
  • Making our software run on other platforms/chipsets

Bonus points!

  • Familiarity with ISO26262 and other automotive safety standards
  • Know things about cars, CAN, J1939, MISRA C, programming, and automotive standards
  • Knowledge of camera software and hardware integration (e.g. OpenCV codecs/backends)
  • Knowledge of STM32 chip
  • ASIL-B+ safety rated code
  • Familiarity with Radar integrations (e.g. CodeSys)

Why Hypermile?

  • Shape the company! We are very inclusive in our decision-making and very committed to the best idea that always wins. 0 bullshit from management.
  • Grow with us! We may be a young company, but we already have big plans and are aggressively executing with us. *We are very keen to enable everyone’s growth—whether you want to be an engineering manager or a world-leading engineer.
  • Competitive salary! (Depending on experience) We are not cheap with our employees.
  • US-style options! When we succeed, we want to take you along for the ride!
  • 25 days paid holidays
  • £2000 budget for your set-up. Get a laptop of your choice and whatever you have left over to make your setup comfortable and productive.

As an early company we are unfortunately not able to offer visa sponsorship at the moment. So the candidate must be eligible to work in the UK.
