Active Safety / Autonomous Driving is a rapidly developing area of automotive engineering. Through the use of multiple systems and sensors, GM is able to deliver new and exciting features to the vehicle such as Automatic Emergency Breaking, Lane Keep Assist, Adaptive Cruise control and more!

Super Cruise is the flagship feature of GM's Advanced Driver Assist Systems and Super Cruise relies heavily on High Definition "HD" (very accurate) maps. These HD maps are the cornerstone of many of the Super Cruise abilities and can also be the root cause of some of the related issues. Therefore, these maps are specified to be 99.9% accurate, which makes HD maps the most accurate piece of information on the Super Cruise system. Testing, validating, querying, releasing, and improving these HD maps are some of the primary functions of this group. It is within this realm we are looking to hire an energetic, highly driven software engineer to support the development of these High Definition Maps.


  • Systematically apply statistical and/or logical techniques to describe, illustrate, review and audit High Definition Map Data
  • Work closely with the HD Map Data team to better understand their needs and create analysis tools that aid the team in achieving their objectives.
  • Experience parsing information from online databases, automating processes, and creating fully encapsulated applications.
  • Create/maintain scripts/SW to visualize, analyze, and/or manipulate map data to keep pace with evolving needs and validation requirements.

Additional Description


  • 2 + years Software skills in Python, C++, SQL, Java, algorithms, data structure
  • Object Oriented programming
  • Bachelor or Masters in Computer or Electrical Engineering and / or Computer Science; Control systems emphasis preferred
  • Good business sense, ability to communicate, and a desire to understand customer needs
  • Passion for solving unique problems
  • Ability to work in a disciplined software development environment
  • At least two years of Engineering work experience
