Are you our new colleague working on Perception Pre-Development?
Arriver™ is a new software unit and brand, fully focused on developing perception, fusion and drive policy software for the next generation cars. It will deliver an open, scalable and flexible architecture solution running on Qualcomm® Snapdragon Ride™ System on a Chip (SoC) platform. Arriver™ has 800 people in five countries – China, Germany, Romania, Sweden, USA  – and builds on more than a decade of experience in active safety software development. The company is wholly owned by Qualcomm.

In Sweden we are situated in Linkoping, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Lund with around 400 colleagues.

We are Perception  
Our Perception Strategy is to develop new solutions for the next generation Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving (AD) on a global market, and to be the leader in Perception and Driver Policy Software.
At our technical center based in Linköping, we are developing world class vision systems for several customers worldwide.
We offer a workplace where you contribute to the development of cutting-edge technology that aims to enhance road safety through collaborative driving and to facilitate autonomous driving.
We are now in an expansive phase and are looking for Senior Machine Learning Engineers in the Computer Vision domain who can strengthen our Perception Pre-Development department.
The Perception Pre-Development department has focus on concept development including prototyping and demonstrators, technology roadmap for next generation products, technology scouting, and other important topics defining the future of ADAS/AD.
In Pre-Development we work in cross-functional constellations with experts from different areas and disciplines to combine very skilled individuals into strong teams. Constellations are dynamic and changes with the different concepts under development. Timelines are often short due to tough competition in the automotive space, but we love to compete and we love to win.
What you’ll do?
You will be working in the Perception Pre-Development department together with specialists in a variety of technical domains in order to help deliver next generation perception software stacks and perception systems.
Our software stacks are central in the ADAS/AD system in the vehicle, delivering perception functions like Vehicle, Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection, Lane and Road Boundary Detection, Freespace and Hazard detection, Traffic Sign and Traffic Light Detection, and lots more. On top of this, new concepts are continuously being developed and demonstrated to ensure we are market leaders in the field to attract new and incumbent customers.
With us you get inspiring and outstanding colleagues who like what we do and have fun at work.
