Software Engineer - Data Tooling & Visualization

San Francisco

Come Build Robots

At Ouster, we're developing advanced sensor hardware and vision algorithms for autonomous cars and drones. We're looking for software and hardware engineers interested in working on the systems that underpin modern robotics: high performance sensors, localization, mapping, object detection, tracking and classification. Our team is composed of engineers that wear many hats and enjoy building robots that cope with the messiness of the real world. All of us push code, some of us build hardware, and none of us wants to wait another decade for cars and drones to be driving themselves.

Ouster is looking for a Full Stack Software Engineer to build the tools that power robotics development. Our robotics engineers rely on access to recorded sensor data, annotated sensor data, real-time vehicle telemetry, mapping data, simulation results, and more. In this role, you will be developing the applications we use to explore, visualize, and work with the data we receive from our production and R&D vehicle fleets.


  • Design and build web tooling to access, explore, and visualize recorded data.
  • Collaborate with our algorithm and machine learning developers to enable faster, more effective R&D workflows.
  • Work across robotics, cloud infrastructure, and product management to drive requirements and product roadmaps.

Experience & Skills:

  • Professional experience developing web applications.
  • B.S., M.S., or Ph.D. in Computer Science, or equivalent experience.
  • Experience building scalable backend APIs using Python, Go, Node.js, or similar languages.
  • Experience building modern front-ends using React, Vue, Angular, or similar libraries

Preferred Skills:

  • Experience at a startup, robotics, machine learning, or autonomous vehicle company.
  • Experience configuring and managing web services through AWS, GCP, or similar.
  • Experience working with Docker based development and deployment workflows.
  • Experience working in Python and ES6+ Javascript.
  • Experience working with WebGL, mapping libraries, or data visualization.
