Five - "Driving Autonomy"
Five is a European leader in the field of automated driving systems. Our vision is a world where safe, green and accessible autonomous transportation advances the world in which we live!
We're creating a platform for autonomous vehicle development and safety assurance. Our platform will empower the industry to build automated driving systems that are safer, smarter, faster and scalable. We're doing this by applying insights learned from solving some of the most challenging problems in this space.
We're engineers, scientists, developers, and designers. We're problem-solvers, dreamers, pioneers, innovators, creatives and pragmatists. We're new hands and accomplished pros. We're hard-working people, solving far-reaching challenges.About The Team
The Simulation team develops the Scenario Editor and Scenario Runtime. The Scenario Editor allows a customer to create complex driving scenarios by manipulating paths and vehicles in a 3D rendered world. The Scenario Runtime then plays out those scenarios, controlling the traffic in the world, and interfacing with the system under test. Both are developed using the Unity3D game engine.
The team has a wide range of challenges to tackle, from developing intuitive user interfaces, through complex agent behavioural algorithms, and down to low level networking performance when interfacing with a system under test.What You Will Do
You'll be leading the Simulation team as a Team Lead. This involves line management of a small team, but is still a highly technical role. You could expect to spend at least half of your time contributing to feature development and technical input on the team.
On the line management side, you would be expected to provide pastoral support, holding regular 1 1 meetings with the team. Help the team set personal development goals, and provide feedback and coaching to help them achieve those goals.
On the technical side, you would be expected to; design large or complex features, and work with other members of the team to implement them, stay involved with smaller bug fixes and feature development, provide code and design review for other team members and help maintain high technical standards, e.g. overall architecture and design patterns, continuous build systems, coding standards, etc.
As a bonus, you may also bring to the table experience with other simulation platforms, either as a user or a developer; experience in automotive simulation platforms would be particularly valuable. As would strong experience working within an agile environment, coaching teams to improve their agile practices, and working within a scaled agile organisation.About YouRequirements
- Demonstrable and proven industry experience as a software engineer.
- Recent experience leading a small engineering team.
- Fluency in C, C++ or C#.
- Experience architecting large and complex systems.
- Familiar with the full development life-cycle and software engineering best practices, including architecture, design, code, unit testing, integration testing, code review, and documentation.
- Experience with existing simulation software, particularly within the automotive industry.
- Experience as a scrum master or agile coach.
- Experience with cloud infrastructure, e.g. CI/CD systems, k8s, Terraform, AWS, etc.
You will be joining a European leader in the autonomous vehicle market where you can have a real impact in a smart, low-ego multi-cultural team. We're secure and growing, having raised $61m to date. We provide an environment where you can develop your skills and deliver meaningful work that matters, whilst working closely with Five's founding team who have previously built and run successful tech companies through to exit. You'll be rewarded with a competitive salary and financial package, pension, private medical care and share option schemes.
