The localization team at Zenuity is looking for a verification engineer to help us make Autonomous Vehicles a reality. The Localization team is responsible for figuring out the exact position of the car. This information is a critical part of the driving experience: it enables the vehicle to do everything from staying in its lane to getting off the highway at the right exit. We design software that uses state of the art sensors, data fusion, and estimation techniques. Our team is responsible for designing, writing, and testing our code from concept to deployment, though we have lots of friends on other teams at Zenuity that help us along the way. Our teams do our best to develop not only our code, but also our processes: we are always looking at how we can change the way we write code, to make our software more reliable. 

We are looking for someone with the passion and drive to take ownership of our testing process and continually make it what it needs to be. This will require someone innovative who is willing to lead the way and define new ways of doing things. As a Verification engineer, your job will be to help the Localization team maintain and improve our testing strategy. You will play a critical role in making sure that our software delivers the right results for safe and effective autonomous driving.
