Job Description

Embark Trucks is America’s Longest-Running Self-Driving Truck Program and is bringing autonomous freight mainstream. As covered by the Wall Street Journal, CNBC, Forbes, TechCrunch and and other outlets, Embark went public via a ~$5 billion SPAC deal in November 2021, and is listed on Nasdaq under the symbol EMBK. Embark is headquartered in San Francisco, CA with operations centers in Fontana, CA and Houston, TX, moving freight daily using our purpose-built transfer hubs. Embark has aligned itself with truck manufacturers, shippers, and carriers to integrate our technology into the freight ecosystem, pursuing a business model where fleets own and operate Embark trucks. This is an incredibly exciting time for autonomous vehicles and our team is looking to grow.
Embark uses machine learning to solve some of the hardest problems in self-driving. With engineers training new models every day, building and maintaining powerful infrastructure and data pipelines to enable fast iteration on our machine learning models is key to Embark’s success.

Experience building backend services using traditional relational DBs (e.g., MySQL, PostgreSQL) as well as NoSQL data stores
Experience with production-level ML dataset curation as well as model training and evaluation pipelines
A good working understanding of machine learning project lifecycles
Your experience might also include:
Experience with open-source and/or commercial cloud ML platforms, such as Kubeflow, Metaflow, or Sagemaker
Experience with training and deploying models built on common machine learning frameworks (Tensorflow, PyTorch, etc)
Experience collecting and working with ground truth data
Familiarity with containerization and orchestration frameworks (Docker, Kubernetes, etc).
A full time, competitive salary with equity
