Toyota Research Institute

At Toyota Research Institute (TRI), we’re working to build a future where everyone has the freedom to move, engage, and explore with a focus on reducing vehicle collisions, injuries, and fatalities. Join us in our mission to improve the quality of human life through advances in artificial intelligence, automated driving, robotics, and materials science. We’re dedicated to building a world of “mobility for all” where everyone, regardless of age or ability, can live in harmony with technology to enjoy a better life.

We strive to build a company that helps our people thrive, achieve work-life balance, and bring their best selves to work. At TRI, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds ‒ a fun environment with forward-thinking people who enjoy solving tough problems and the financial backing to successfully achieve your goals. Come work with TRI if you’re interested in transforming mobility through designing technology for safer cars, enabling the elderly to age in place, or designing alternative fuel sources. Start your impossible with us.

The long-term vision of TRI’s Accelerated Materials Design and Discovery (AMDD) program is to accelerate the development of truly emissions-free mobility. Realizing this vision will require the development of new materials and devices for batteries, fuel cells, and more. Our aim at TRI is to merge advanced computational materials modeling, new experimental data, artificial intelligence, and automation to dramatically accelerate the materials design and discovery process. Our focus is on developing tools and capabilities to enable this acceleration. In addition to the research work of the internal team, we collaborate closely with a dozen universities and national labs. AMDD aims to develop and translate the newest technologies into practice, both within Toyota and the open research community more broadly.

We are looking for an experienced software engineer to build a prototype platform that integrates battery manufacturing data and machine learning models, with an interface accessible to manufacturing engineers. The candidate will have responsibility for scoping and developing the platform, in collaboration with the program team. The team members will cover software engineering, machine learning, and battery manufacturing. This project aims to make a significant contribution to battery manufacturing for electric vehicles.

We welcome you to join a unique team of scientists and engineers dedicated to enabling a sustainable future. We all grow working alongside other great people and constantly learn new skills together at the interface of materials science and AI. You will combine your individual research with the rest of the teams’ and our collaborators to add software development capability to R&D informatics. We have a high degree of autonomy which gives us the freedom to select challenges to address, play to our strengths and pursue the solutions we believe in.

We’d love to hear from you if you have:
BS/MS in computer science
5+ years experience in software development.
Excellent communication skills
Experience with platform development for informatics systems
Experience in design and prototyping of software systems as well as building data pipelines
Proficient in multiple common languages (Python, SQL, etc.)

It’s a bonus if you:
A strong interest in vehicle electrification
A desire to work in an R&D setting, with a diverse group of scientists and engineers.
Project management experience and familiarity with Agile methodologies.
UI/UX experience.
