Mapping Lead

Job Description

Every road in the world has a unique subsurface signature. GPR uses radar to create a map of those subsurface signatures from which self-driving cars can navigate. Vehicles using GPR are unaffected by common but challenging road conditions like snow, heavy rain, fog, or poor lane markings.

GPR is working with leading autonomous vehicle and traditional automotive companies, is backed by leading investors, is growing quickly, and is building a talented team that wants to transform the future of mobility and work on some of the hardest and most important engineering problems around. If that sounds like you, please drop us a line.


As the GPR Mapping Lead, you will drive GPR's mapping team, shape strategy and help form partnerships.  You will work with the cloud team to design and build a scalable mapping infrastructure worldwide. You will work with your team and others to integrate radar-based map and sensor fusion-based localization algorithms into the cloud and vehicle systems.  You will be responsible for developing the mapping roadmap, managing and growing a team of talented engineers to develop worldwide capabilities.


  • Lead mapping strategy
  • Lead and manage the mapping team
  • Take responsibility for the overall planning, execution, and success of complex technical projects and provide the team with technical leadership.
  • Work closely with other teams, especially within engineering, cloud, and product development.
  • Lead the development of HD map APIs, mapping algorithm, map infrastructure, and map toolchain for scalable map change.
  • Lead the operations and process strategies to meet map data collection objectives.
  • Lead the development of tools and process for map quality verification.
  • Enjoy working with, growing, and developing small, high output teams in a fast-paced startup environment.
  • A “get-it-done” person. You know that done is better than perfect and are energized by constantly delivering and moving things forward.

  • Understanding of strategy and willingness to handle partnership engagements
  • Proven track record of delivering complex technical projects.
  • System and product experience working on or building a scalable map system
  • If you are planning to work remotely, you must be a strong and talented remote worker and a solid team player.  You will need to spend 2-3 weeks on site up front to meet the team and learn the technology.  You will need to be on board with traveling for work engagements/sites where needed.  You should plan to be in the office in person at least 1 week every 2 months and based on work and team needs


  • Experience in automotive, robotics, aerospace engineering, or medical device engineering
  • Experience with safety-critical systems
  • Experience with scalable map systems, cloud platforms.
