Lyft is committing its vast transportation expertise to building safer, cleaner, and more efficient communities through the development of self-driving technologies. This is tremendous news for everyone who shares Lyft’s vision for a better future. Their commitment is a significant one—in the past year alone, Lyft announced the launch of a new self-driving division, opened a 90,000 sq ft Level 5 Engineering Facility in Palo Alto, and made significant investments and partnerships in the space.
Lyft and Udacity: Driving the Future Forward
Expectations for Lyft’s new self-driving team are high, and with demand for skilled talent in the self-driving field already at a fever pitch, the company is laser-focused on attracting the best and brightest to fill dozens of open positions, and to help the company drive the future of self-driving technology forward. Udacity is thrilled to play a key role in their efforts.
A New Approach to Finding Talent
Lyft recognizes that conventional recruiting strategies no longer suffice. What is needed is a future-facing hiring model as transformative as the field they’re hiring for. To that end, Lyft is partnering with Udacity on a new approach to identifying, attracting, and hiring top candidates—engineers that possess the ideal combination of problem-solving ability, specialized skills, hand-on experience, and systems thinking.
This new collaboration builds on previous successes, as the company has already hired a number of Udacity graduates.
The Lyft Perception Challenge
Given the specific skill sets and problem-solving abilities the company is seeking, Lyft and Udacity have designed an innovative challenge to help identify the perfect candidates for Lyft’s open roles on their Level 5 Team. The Lyft Perception Challenge is a software development challenge designed to test problem solving skills in the area of Perception for Autonomous Vehicles. Top challenge participants will earn an interview with Lyft!
