Dear colleagues,

nuTonomy is looking for a *Perception Lead* to guide our growing
perception team.

Please distribute to senior people who might be interested.


We are seeking a Perception Lead to guide nuTonomy's growing
perception team, which is developing a wide range of perception
capabilities, including: multimodal sensor fusion (lidar, camera,
radar, ...), SLAM/SfM, object detection, object tracking, scene
understanding, automatic sensor calibration and fault detection, and
all other capabilities necessary for making a fleet of vehicles
autonomous. nuTonomy's strategy is heavily focused on a holistic
approach to the problem, using task-driven perception and joint
inference and control.

The perception lead will be responsible for leading the overall design
of the perception system, as well as its integration in the larger
system. They will have the responsibility of identifying
goals/milestones, writing technical roadmaps, and the determination of
performance metrics and testing plans.
