Fontana, CA and Houston, TX, moving freight daily using our purpose-built
transfer hubs. Embark has aligned itself with [truck
truck-oem-platforms-301259787.html), shippers, and carriers to integrate our
technology into the freight ecosystem, pursuing a [business
where fleets own and operate Embark trucks. This is an incredibly exciting
time for autonomous vehicles and our team is looking to grow.
About the Role:
The role is responsible for monitoring the self-driving system, collecting data and taking notes on system performance, and troubleshooting both software and hardware issues to provide useful feedback to Engineering to accelerate our tech progress. AV Software Operators work in the right seat next to our safety driver for 8+ hours a day. Cross country/state travel is sometimes required with stays lasting a few days to a few weeks. The AV Software Operator must be in constant communication with their assigned Safety Driver, describing system performance and annotating real-world situations. When not in the truck, AV Software Operators are responsible for continuous improvement of themselves and contributing to any goals that Operations and Embark put into place.
What We Offer
We believe this technology will transform the trucking industry by saving lives by preventing the 4,000 fatalities a year caused by truck accidents, reducing the 50,000 truck driver shortage, and making moving goods across the country twice as fast and half as expensive. Our team is looking for people with a passion for autonomous technology and the trucking industry to join our growing team as Vehicle Software Operators in our Fontana office!
At Embark we celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
