Waymo Engineering

When it comes to research and engineering challenges, our teams have access to unparalleled compute power, enabling them to turn an idea into reality. This advantage has the potential to help researchers make innovations, including through advances in 2D and 3D perception and progress on areas such as domain adaptation, scene understanding and behavior prediction. Our mission is big and our work has the potential to save lives Our research in machine learning, computer vision, domain adaptation, and behavior prediction all have the potential to make a big impact—but that will only happen by getting the details right. As leaders in our industry, we’re purposeful in how we deploy our technology because we know our actions affect an entire nascent industry and we’re in it for the long haul. By being rigorous every step of the way, we’ve been able to make great strides toward our mission. But there are still a lot of hard problems to solve, difficult questions to answer, and elegant experiences to create for people. A diverse and driven team Our teams are made up of curious people who never stop learning. We come together from diverse backgrounds to help one another reach our goals for the greater good. To get there, we use both sides of the brain to build our own hardware and software. We come to work each day ready to challenge and be challenged. Best of both worlds As a project first launched by Google, we’re big enough to give our teams the support they need and the perks they didn’t even know they wanted. Now that we’re a standalone Alphabet company, we’re also small enough that every person can make a big difference. At Waymo, every challenge has a champion and there is still much to be done, with plenty of opportunities to match people’s interests.

Our Values

Safety first Saving lives is central to our mission, making safety a guiding principle in all that we do. During the development, testing, and deployment of our technology, we follow industry best practices and develop new methods wherever we feel they’re needed. Our mission motivates us to diligently approach each challenge at hand with the appropriate level of thought to tackle these problems, even down to the smallest details. Stronger together The work we do requires close collaboration across disciplines. Being successful will require building a team of open, curious, and critical minds who are up for the challenge. At every step, we acknowledge the progress we’ve made together and have fun along the way. Leading the way Doing something that’s never been done before requires a willingness to challenge the status quo. As we pave the way to a better future, we are undaunted in overcoming each and every obstacle. As industry leaders, we have invested in the research and development that will bring the Waymo Driver to the world—making mobility safer and more accessible.
