Open positions & working at AImotive

Location: Budapest, Hungary

Research Scientist - aiNotate

Developing automated driving requires a comprehensive, mature toolchain to collect, generate, utilize, and manage the data necessary for a safe and reliable solution. aiData is the most advanced, data-driven pipeline for automated driving, reducing complexity through high automation while maintaining automotive quality.

An accurate understanding of the surroundings of the vehicle is at the heart of self-driving applications, detecting and providing 3D properties of the objects surrounding the vehicle is one of the fundamental building blocks in delivering a reliable autonomous vehicle. In order to enable high-quality detections, error-free training data for neural networks is essential.

As a Research Engineer in the aiNotate team, you will take part in prototyping new solutions, porting prototypes as reliable modules into the auto-annotation pipeline generating training data for neural networks used in real-time self-driving applications, and improving and benchmarking existing solutions. You will work in different environments like driving on a highway, city and you will see your code running in aiMotive’s and customer’s data pipeline.
