Insights from the Team

At Zenseact the Target Tracking area is expanding and team Strider is looking for more stars to join us! In the whole Target Tracking area, we work in small agile and autonomous teams and our tasks include tracking of road users by fusing data from multiple sensors to create 360 degree perception. Algorithm development and deployment is part of our daily work. 

In team Strider we develop tests and metrics to evaluate the algorithm's status as well as tools for visualization and benchmarking. We test our algorithms in real-time directly in Zenseact’s vehicles, continuously integrating with other teams in the Target Tracking area and the rest of Zenseact. The team focuses on sharing knowledge through collaboration and investigations of interesting new topics.

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.
