Universal Autonomy

We are an international startup, scaling-up rapidly (300+ and growing). Our base is in Oxford, but we are hiring in multiple countries, and have hybrid and/or flexible work arrangements (although this role will require a significant onsite presence). The problems we are solving require diversity of thought, so we are committed to, and welcome diverse backgrounds and individuality.

You will be part of the Localisation and Mapping Team family, working on state-of-the-art state estimation technologies that are at the heart of our navigation stack.

We develop robust and reliable systems that operate across multiple domains (e.g., mining, solar farms, ports, and on-road shuttles). Whether it’s vision-only, laser-only, radar-only, or combinations of these modalities, we ensure that we develop the tools and techniques that will allow us to scale.

This role is about owning, growing, and further developing our calibration technologies within the company. It will involve consolidating existing tools, developing new methods for lifelong calibration of a growing fleet across all sensing modalities, with an emphasis on how this will be done at scale. It will involve owning the tooling and infrastructure to make this happen, while at the same time remaining aligned with the core foundational stack.


Joining us as a Senior Software Engineer (Calibration) as part of the Localisation and Mapping team you will be responsible for:

– Building a calibration team that adheres to Oxbotica’s Leadership Principles.
– In conjunction with our Vehicle design team, defining the calibration strategy that will allow us to scale at velocity.
– Developing calibration software for our heterogeneous fleet of vehicles, with a heterogeneous mixture of sensor types.
– Owning the tooling and infrastructure necessary to deploy across the fleet.

What you Bring:

– Demonstrable experience in developing sensor calibration technology.
– Demonstrable experience in managing / facilitating teams in complex software engineering and systems environments in companies that have an all consuming growth mindset.
– Strong leadership skills gained through experience in technical management.
– Demonstrable experience with either modern C++ or Python

Extra kudos if you have:

– A deep understanding of robotics as a system.
– Understanding of the physics of sensing technology for autonomous vehicles (i.e. LiDAR, RADAR).
– Significant experience in software development and delivery
– Delivered a product/application/service to a customer (including business, internal or consumer customers)
