TuSimple is a global Artificial Intelligence Technology Company. We are the epicenter of the Autonomous Vehicle Universe. Our breakthroughs are multiple generations ahead of anyone in the world. While inventing the framework of Autonomous Driving, our current fleet of autonomous Trucks are helping communities receive much-needed supplies and medical equipment around the clock. Our people are some of the most talented engineers and contributors who are leaving behind a historic legacy.  

TuSimple was founded half a decade ago with the goal of bringing the top minds in the world together to achieve the dream of a driverless truck solution. With a foundation in computer vision, algorithms, mapping, and Artificial Intelligence, TuSimple is working to create the first GLOBALLY commercially viable autonomous truck driving platform!

Job Description

TuSimple is a self-driving technology company with a mission to bring automation to the trucking industry. The Planning and Control (PnC) module is the heart of an L4 autonomous truck, as it is in direct charge of the behavior of the truck. On our team, we work on both motion planning and control of TuSimple’s autonomous trucks.

Example projects:

  • Proactive lane-change algorithms to make our lane change natural, smooth and safe.
  • Obstacle/collision avoidance trajectory generation considering both tractor and trailer.
  • Optimal trajectory generation and decision-making under uncertain environments.
  • Vehicle control under extreme weather conditions (heavy wind, snow, and rain)


  • Deliver high-quality and reliable code for PnC modules on autonomous driving trucks. 
  • Develop cutting-edge algorithms with optimization, control theory, and machine learning. 

Minimum Qualifications

  • MS in Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Robotics, Statistics, Mathematics, or similar technical field of study.
  • The ability to write clean, efficient code and maintain the overall quality of the codebase. 
  • The ability to write in C++ with a clear understanding of data structures, algorithms, and complexity analysis. 

Preferred Qualifications

  • Knowledge and experience in optimization: convex optimization, nonlinear optimization, numerical optimization, LP, QP, conic programming, etc. 
  • Classical and contemporary control: MPC, LQR, Linear system, Nonlinear system, Lyapunov analysis. 
  • Solid math: Real analysis, Linear Algebra, Differential Geometry, Fourier Analysis, and Ordinary Differential Equation.
