Zoox's Road Network team is responsible for developing the tools and infrastructure necessary to build, curate, and manage our high definition road network.

The ZRN Tools team manages most of the applications in the road network content pipeline. These tools help Engineers and Cartographers create, analyze, and validate the semantic road network content our vehicles use to drive.

The ZRN Editor is the most powerful of these tools. The Editor is an in-house native 3D curve and polygon editing tool used to build all ZRN content in the company. Road Network Tools engineers also work closely with the Core Architecture team to build out post-process and validation tools that help us guarantee data integrity and validity.

We are looking for both generalist C++ engineers and engineers with 3D graphics experience. Developers will also be responsible for building content validators, post-process tools, and other tools to aid Cartographers in their work.


  • Design, develop & test features for our road network Editor
  • Build out the content pipeline that allows Cartographers to produce ZRN data accurately and quickly
  • Create software requirements, design documentation, test plans, and other supporting documentation
  • Contribute to all phases of the software development cycle including prototyping, requirements capture, design, implementation, and validation


  • Bachelor's degree in computer science (or related field) or equivalent practical experience
  • At least 6 years of industry experience
  • Fluency with C++
  • Experience with OpenGL or WebGL

Bonus Qualifications

  • Master's / PhD in computer science (or related field)
  • Experience with Qt or equivalent UI framework
  • Proficiency with Python
  • Experience with geometry, routing, or graph theory
  • Experience with mapping or GIS systems
