System Architecture

Senior Simulation Engineer

at Arrivo in Los Angeles

Date Posted: 2018-07-17

Arrivo is looking for an experienced simulation engineer to help maximize the impact of their transportation system on the world. This role is similar to a Guidance, Navigation, and Control Engineer at an aerospace firm, with the added challenges of simulating multi-modal traffic flows. Models and algorithms developed in simulation will drive hardware development and project planning, then pipeline into real-time hardware-in-the-loop testing and flight software.

• Develop and maintain our simulation codebase. This includes all scopes of simulation, from individual components and subsystems to full intra- and inter-city models
• Develop and rigorously test control algorithms
• Verify and validate certain traffic simulations with empirical data
• Work closely with a broad range of technical groups, as well as business development, to study and optimize system performance
• 5-8 years experience
• B.S. or M.S. in Computer Science, Aerospace Engineering, Applied Physics, or Mathematics
• Proven ability to scale simulation software architecture from the concept phase to shipping
• Expertise in C/C++, Matlab, or Python
• Expertise in numerical methods
• Excellent communication skills, especially when interpreting complex systems or results for colleagues and customers
• Comfortable with the fast pace and rapid changes that go along with a dynamic startup company
The following are desirable:

• A Ph.D. in the fields listed above
• Experience with geospatial datasets (PostGRES, PostGIS, QGIS, Google Maps API, etc.)
• Experience in the transportation or urban planning industries
• Experience in multi-disciplinary optimization
• Experience in machine learning
• Experience in econometrics
