nuTonomy (www.nutonomy.com) is focused on research and development of
state-of-the-art software for self-driving cars. Founded by Karl Iagnemma
(former Director of Robotic Mobility Group, MIT) and Emilio Frazzoli
(former Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics, MIT), we aim to be the
first company in the world to launch an autonomous taxi system. We are
building up an awesome team in Boston, Santa Monica and Singapore to make
this goal a reality. Recently, we launched the world's first public trial
of autonomous vehicles in Singapore, and are also testing on public roads
in Boston.

We are seeking highly talented simulation engineers to help develop the
tools to support the rapid development of our self-driving car technology.
The ideal candidate is someone with extensive experience developing 3d game
engines, realistic robotics simulators, or well versed in existing
automotive simulation methods. The candidate will also develop stochastic
system tests that will put our software through millions of miles of
simulated testing every day.
