Mission: We’re building the world’s best autonomous vehicle network to safely connect people to the places, things, and experiences they care about
We are building the world’s best autonomous vehicles to safely connect people to the places, things, and experiences they care about.
Our vehicles are on the road in California, Arizona, and Michigan navigating some of the most challenging and unpredictable driving environments. They encounter hundreds of unique traffic situations that we analyze carefully to ensure safety and reliability.
The future needs you
We’re hiring people who want to solve some of today’s most complex engineering challenges and make a positive impact. We’re a small team, and we’re moving fast. If you share our passion for achieving what some say is impossible, join us.
I have been working at Cruise full-time (Less than a year)
Very interesting work, great coworkers, strong company mission. Lots of opportunities to take on challenging projects. Good place to grow.
Things move very fast. This sometimes leads to a chaotic vibe.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Cruise (San Francisco, CA) in November 2018.
A recruiter reached out to me. I responded, and she scheduled an initial phone screen. From that initial contact to the time I had an offer in hand was 5 weeks. Most of that time was spent waiting for people’s availability (mine and theirs). At each decision point, Cruise acted quickly and decisively. After I talked to the hiring manager on the phone they were in contact the same day to set up an on-site interview in San Francisco. The on-site was on a Friday. The following Monday they let me know they wanted to proceed to the offer stage. I had the written offer that Wednesday. These folks do not screw around.
The interview itself was a fairly standard 5 hour affair. I gave a presentation in the morning, followed by a pretty tough and far reaching technical interview that covered software architecture, development practice, and mathematical modeling. Then I had lunch with a couple engineers. After lunch I met with the hiring manager again and we talked about the role and also had some business/strategy discussion. After that was a code review. Then I talked to the recruiter again, and she asked me about compensation. I probably asked for too little. The company pays very well, at least by my standards.
On the whole I felt my interviewers were prepared and engaged and I look forward to working with them.
