FERNRIDE is an equal opportunities employer. We are committed to Diversity & Inclusion because we want to celebrate everyone's differences and individuality. We aim for empowering our employees working together, individually and bringing the best ideas to life. We strive to create an open, safe space in which you feel encouraged to speak up and be heard. Be authentic and simply be you!

What will you do

At FERNRIDE, we call the team that provides most of the services and infrastructure as well as verification efforts, the Engineering and Verification Ecosystems (EVE) team. As the foundation of FERNRIDE engineering, the EVE team is poised to build the most productive engineering team in the world with an engineering system that scales, rock-solid cloud platforms and world class verification. From source management to deploying to individual vehicles roaming around different yards, from distributed building/testing to orchestrating container-based integration tests in the cloud, from customizing and installing OSs and firmware to building CLI and web services and applications, we have it all covered.

At EVE, you will work with C++, Rust, Python, Java, Kotlin, React, Typescript, Bazel, Docker, Kubernetes, Azure, AWS, GitHub, Linux, embedded systems, Bash, Ansible, etc. Our team is impactful and has high leverage: we make the entire engineering organization more productive as well as provide services to our business developers and customers. You will have visibility into every other engineering team and their systems and engage in helping and mentoring them.

Leave your footprint by:

  • designing and implementing scalable distributed engineering and verification systems to facilitate the development of remote-controlled and self-driving vehicles together with our SREs.
  • empowering engineers to get to full autonomy faster by providing initiative and technical leadership to build reliable, high-quality solutions that scale with FERNRIDE’s engineering processes.
  • working on workstations, trucks, in the cloud, and with everything in between.
  • contributing to our build/test/CI/CD system, the largest distributed system at FERNRIDE.
  • contributing to our cloud services, which are used by developers, management, operations and customers of FERNRIDE.
  • open source your work, describe it in blog posts, and talk about it at conferences.

What you will bring to the team?

  • Fundamental understanding of Linux operating system internals, TCP/UDP/IP networking, and storage subsystems.
  • Strong software testing skills and leadership.
  • Strong experience scaling and securing services in the cloud (Azure, AWS, GCP) or cloud-native environments.
  • Experience with planning of software development projects and organizing small teams and experience working on larger software systems
  • Deep understanding of the compilation process, assembly and system architecture specifics (aarch64 vs amd64, etc.).
