Established in 2011, one major business unit in Yandex is our ride-sharing service, Yandex.Taxi. Yandex.Taxi has captured the majority of the ride-sharing market in Russia and several neighboring countries. The business offers services similar to Uber, Lyft, Gett, and similar operations around the world. In late 2016, Yandex.Taxi established Yandex Self-Driving. Their goal is to develop autonomous driving technologies that can power the Yandex.Taxi fleet and other automotive platforms. The Yandex Self-Driving team will be opening their newest office in Ann Arbor.
Yandex is seeking a Technical Project Manager to oversee the operation and testing of our autonomous vehicles, which run proprietary software and hardware.
Professionalism, attention to detail, and personal accountability are key attributes, as you will be expected to adhere to the culture of safety and standards of conduct exemplified by the team. You will also be required to pass a number of training milestones both inside and outside the vehicle.
