Embark Trucks is America's Longest-Running Self-Driving Truck Program and is
bringing autonomous freight mainstream. As covered by the Wall Street Journal,
CNBC, Forbes, TechCrunch and and other outlets, Embark went public via a
billion SPAC deal in November 2021, and is listed on Nasdaq under the symbol
EMBK. Embark is headquartered in San Francisco, CA with operations centers in
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.
Embark’s Product team sets the direction and priorities for our growing Engineering organization. We build close relationships with truck drivers and engineers alike so that we can empathize with them and understand the self- driving problem as deeply as possible. We analyze on-road data with a fine- toothed comb and develop system requirements from first principles. We build and execute test plans to verify our performance against these requirements. We develop strategies and roadmaps for the team using metrics that we build from the ground up. We understand we have a responsibility to communicate these plans and our progress to the company to keep everyone accountable and ultimately accelerate the deployment of safe self-driving trucks.
At Embark, safety is a top priority and systems engineering is responsible for answering some of the major questions around how to make our truck drive safely and reliably. As our Head of Systems Engineering you will be responsible for building and managing the team that takes a deep understanding of technology, our system and a strong grasp of classical physics and engineering practices to define how our truck should drive and how major components should interact. You will be responsible for identifying what roles and subteams need to be filled to create effective requirements, architectures and V&V campaigns. On top of that, you will be tasked with defining the processes by which Systems Engineering interacts with the rest of the company.
At Embark we celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
