Cruise is building the world’s most advanced, self-driving vehicles to safely connect people to the places, things, and experiences they care about. We believe self-driving vehicles will help save lives, reshape cities, give back time in transit, and restore freedom of movement for many. I'm an engineering manager hiring specifically for the Webviz (<http://webviz.io/>) team. I'm looking for frontend engineers who want to make fast, beautiful browser-based visualizations of the car using WebGL, WASM and Javascript. Much of the work that we do on this team is open-sourced (check out the code at <https://github.com/cruise-automation/webviz>). Cruise vehicles produce mountains of data; we have to visualize it in dozens of different ways at a high frame rate. We recently built a Javascript object proxy that wraps all of our input binary data in an object-like interface that only parses data on access, so that we can limit garbage collection pressure and improve our frame rate. If this kind of project sounds interesting, you might enjoy working on Webviz! Reach out directly to me if you're interested in the above (open to associate/senior/staff levels), or if you have any questions about Cruise. All other jobs: <https://www.getcruise.com/careers/jobs>
