About the Company

At Torc, we have always believed that autonomous vehicle technology will transform how we travel, move freight, and do business.

A leader in autonomous driving since 2007, Torc has spent over a decade commercializing our solutions with experienced partners. Now a part of the Daimler family, we are focused solely on developing software for automated trucks to transform how the world moves freight.

Join us and catapult your career with the company that helped pioneer autonomous technology, and the first AV software company with the vision to partner directly with a truck manufacturer.

What you will do:

We are seeking a software engineering intern (m/f/d) to work on virtual perception verification and validation. As a software engineering intern (m/f/d), you will help us to assess the maturity of the perception software and if it is ready to be released on public roads as part of an autonomous driving software stack to public roads. Therefore, self-explanatory dashboards and reports that show us the current performance and readiness of the perception stack and what is missing to reach the requirements need to be implemented. This enables us to:

  • Give an early status towards the perception developers
  • Detect gaps and issues early and counteract
  • Include the dashboarding visualization in a monthly and later final report
  • Rethink the whole Perception V&V pipeline to get to the point of being able to visualize the perception verification

Candidates are expected to work 40 hours per week for the duration of the internship.

They must be willing to be based locally in Stuttgart, Germany for the duration of the internship. The position is hybrid (partially working from office and partially working from home).

Torc Internships provide a fantastic way for you to hone your skills and see what life at Torc is all about. Our goal is to enable interns (m/f/d) to become full-time Torc’rs.

What you'll need to succeed:

  • Full-time student (m/f/d) pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in computer science, computer engineering or related field
  • Knowledge of Linux platforms
  • Knowledge of dashboarding tools and libraries
  • Software development experience
  • Familiarity with one or more high-level languages: Python, C/C++
  • Enthusiasm to take on new challenges and learn new skills
  • Willingness to work in an international team

Bonus Points!

  • Familiarity with Cloud providers (AWS, GCP, Azure)
  • Experience in self-driving car industry
  • Experience with simulations


At Torc, we’re committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace. We celebrate the uniqueness of our Torc’rs and do not discriminate based on race, religion, color, national origin, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, veteran status, or disabilities.

Even if you don’t meet 100% of the qualifications listed for this opportunity, we encourage you to apply. We’re always looking for those that are hungry, humble, and people smart and your unique experience may be a great fit for this role or others.
