In this week’s Toyota AI Ventures Talent Network spotlight, we explore two openings at a portfolio company dedicated to improving vehicle safety, Nauto.

Based in Palo Alto, CA, Nauto was founded in 2015 by Dr. Stefan Heck to reduce traffic collisions by making driving safer and smarter. The company is using AI to increase the safety of commercial vehicle fleets by detecting distracted driving and helping to prevent collisions before they occur.

Its intelligent driver safety system, which is in use by commercial fleets around the world, combines dual-facing cameras, computer vision, and proprietary algorithms to better understand how drivers interact with the vehicle and the road to reduce distracted driving accidents.

The company is building a team that will help power the development of self-driving technology by combining human driving insights with autonomy. Nauto is looking for passionate, dedicated professionals that are interested in helping to shape the strategic direction of this dynamic company.

Edge AI Engineer: Nauto is currently looking to hire an Edge AI Engineer that would be responsible for designing, implementing and debugging algorithms on edge devices. Other responsibilities include designing and implementing the split/interaction between edge and cloud algorithms, and leveraging available compute to create offline algorithms for semantic segmentation, privacy-aware video recording, and video analytics.

For this position, Nauto would like you to have at least 7 years of experience, specifically with OpenCV, low-level systems profiling, multi-threading and synchronization primitives in C++11 and above. You would also need experience with device/edge inference frameworks like Tensorflow or Tensorflow Lite, and RPC mechanisms like gRPC.

Nauto is also looking for candidates with familiarity with deep learning techniques and frameworks, as well as video codecs like H.264/H.265, and message passing/pub sub frameworks. A master’s degree or Ph.D in electrical engineering or computer science is preferred.

This role is a great opportunity to improve your existing skills alongside a diverse and talented group of experts in a wide range of fields, from AI and computer vision, to systems and device engineering, to support and operations. If you’re a determined and curiosity-driven individual, you’ll find a great environment at Nauto.

Senior Verticals Marketing Manager: As the company continues to expand, Nauto is looking for an experienced product marketing professional to help establish vertical-specific, go-to-market strategies. In the role of Senior Verticals Marketing Manager, you would act as a GM for Nauto’s target verticals and select channel partners, leveraging your existing entrepreneurial spirit to acquire and grow new accounts.

This role would allow you to help shape the direction of Nauto by influencing the product roadmap through collaboration with the product team. You would function as the voice of Nauto’s vertical buyers, articulating their challenges and establishing vertical-specific use cases that help define and ship new product features. You would also develop and deliver sales presentations, customer success stories, demos, proposals, and company positioning documents. The role will require you to collaborate with the marketing team to produce highly engaging digital and event content, and to work with channel sales teams to build out Nauto’s channel sales toolkit.

To qualify, you will need a bachelor’s degree and 5 to 7 years of experience as a B2B enterprise solutions or product marketer. Nauto is also looking for experienced enterprise sales managers, well-versed in early-stage technologies, with a proven track record of creating vertical, industry-specific messaging and content. This job is perfect for a creative, analytical storyteller who can persuasively communicate complex ideas from actionable data and present them to company executives.
