“There is much hype around machine learning in the tech industry generally, but at Wayve, we are doing cutting-edge deep learning at a scale you don’t usually find in other companies.”

Meet Alex

I’m an engineer in the machine learning platform team, working on the code and cloud infrastructure that supports Wayve’s training and simulation.

Before Wayve, I worked in software, data and platform teams in the financial industry, including sports betting and hedge fund management. I left finance because I wanted a career that would positively impact society. Autonomous vehicles will have a massive, positive impact on our lives, and my role at Wayve was just what I was looking for.

I’m involved in computing at an industrial scale. It’s a pretty unique scenario. We’re doing cutting-edge deep learning at a scale you don’t usually find in other companies. And although we’re working on a huge problem, I can see the impact of my contribution on the progress we make day by day.

One of the things I love about Wayve is how the senior leadership team respects and values everyone’s input. That matters to me, and it’s not what I’ve always experienced in other companies. There’s a fantastic startup culture, too. You never know what conversation you will have when sitting at the lunch table! It’s a lot of fun.
