Durlston Partners

Model Engineer

Software Engineering
Up to $275,000 Base + Equity


We’re working with a California based Autonomous Driving startup whose mission is to make self-driving for everyone. They build autonomous driving software for automakers, based on a breakthrough in artificial intelligence that finally makes highway autonomy safe and scalable for the consumer car market.

They specialize in retrofitting existing vehicles with autonomous driving technology. This means they aim to make self-driving capabilities available for vehicles that were not originally designed for autonomous operation.

The team takes charge of both innovation and product development, tackling intricate challenges with pioneering technology while ensuring it’s ready for millions of customers.

Due to the background of the business’s founders and subsequent hires, they’ve already gone through several rounds of funding and are close to a monetization event (i.e your equity will mean something!). They have a unique USP which I can’t reveal till we speak on the phone.
