Software Engineer – Backend, Developer Platforms


  • Full Time

Delivering Zoox’s mission of autonomous mobility primarily involves two stages – validating software in simulation before testing it in the real world and gathering insights from the data collected after real-world testing. The grand goal of the Developer Platforms team is to help developers at Zoox validate and infer insights from their changes across the autonomy stack in a reliable, and performant manner with faster iteration between the two stages.

To that end, the DevX team at Zoox owns and maintains products that developers across the Perception, Prediction, Motion Planning, and release teams rely on in their day-to-day workflow. We are looking for Software Engineers with experience and an active interest in developing micro-services. You’ll be working closely with the frontend developers to bring to life a performant product. If you are someone with a passion for developing performant APIs and are willing to take ownership and responsibility then you will be a great fit for the team.




  • Have a high engineering discipline: coding, code, and design reviews, documentation, performance monitoring, and maintenance.
  • Solid foundations in Python.
  • Fluency in SQL.
  • Experience using Postgres.
  • Professional and positive communication skills.

    Bonus Qualifications


  • Experience with Flask or FastAPI.
  • A knack for monitoring and optimizing query performance.
