Senior Software Developer

Running out of time? The Zenseact cutting edge technology is designing the future of mobility and changing our lifestyles. Want to sit in the back seat of your car? Join us to get there!

Data is a key enabler for Zenseact software development. Gb/s streams of high-resolution uncompressed video, radar and LiDAR data in cars quickly accumulates to petabytes of data in our data centers. Managing and processing these datasets in our data centers is a big challenge: Zenseact needs you!


Your Role

Zenseact needs high quality development and test data recorded by test vehicles all over the world in order to develop our world-leading automotive algorithms. We use many different sensors to interpret the surroundings of a car with high accuracy, including high-resolution cameras, radars, LiDARs, ultrasonic sensors and positioning systems. The data rates generated by the sensors reaches over 15 Gb/s, which quickly accumulates to petabytes of data divided over millions of files in our data centers. In order to navigate and generate value from these huge datasets we need to be experts in data processing and management.

Zenseact has several teams working in the areas of data processing and High-Performance Computing, and you will join a team that is responsible for handling data produced by Zenseact's in-house development cars.

  • Tracing and solving issues
  • Supporting and collaborating with teams that consume data
  • Collaborating with teams and partners that contribute to the Zenseact data platform

More about Zenseact

Zenseact’s purpose is to make safe and intelligent mobility real, for everyone, everywhere. We develop the complete software stack for ADAS and AD, from sensing to actuation. Our focus is to build a single cutting-edge software platform in order to serve various levels of autonomy and offer unequaled scalability at the same time. We operate out of Gothenburg, Sweden and Shanghai, China. Zenseact’s first self-driving deployment will be launched on the next-generation vehicle platform from Volvo Cars.

Self-driving cars, when real, is estimated to reduce fatal car accidents with more than 85%, saving more than 50,000 persons from dying in car accidents caused by human errors each year. We feel that is a goal worth pursuing.

But technology, software, tools and datasets would not mean much without the best people behind the wheel to drive them. At Zenseact, some five hundred of the best engineering minds globally, stationed across two continents, are collaborating with the same passion: to bring autonomous driving to the streets for real and create a safer journey for everyone. This is part of our culture and how we work, develop and grow together.

Zenseact works proactively to create a culture of diversity and inclusion, where individual differences are appreciated and respected. To drive innovation we see diversity as an asset, which means we value and respect differences in gender, race, ethnicity, religion or other belief, disability, sexual orientation or age etc.

Interviews are held on a continuous basis, so we highly recommend that you submit your application at your earliest convenience.
