About Baraja

Baraja is changing the world of self-driving cars through the invention of a new type of LiDAR called Spectrum-Scan™ that delivers ultra-high performance at high resolution, even at incredibly far distances. Today, Baraja LiDAR is already deployed in multiple verticals, working with global automotive and industrial partners. 

Originally founded in Sydney, Australia, we also have offices in San Francisco, China and Europe. We are funded by Sequoia, Blackbird and Main Sequence Ventures and we are excited to continue growing the team, so if you are looking for a fast-paced, dynamic role in a start-up we are keen to hear from you!

The Opportunity 
We are looking for a Systems Engineer to work within a multidisciplinary team for design, development, integration and verification of next generation LIDAR products.


Inside the Job

  • Generating system level requirements to ensure the higher-level customer and Product Manager requirements are met. 
  • Designing experiments and test cases to evaluate system performance. 
  • Integrating new designs/features, verifying performance, and providing feedback to the relevant design team.  
  • Evaluating test coverage and traceability of requirements. 
  • Develop and maintain automated test scripts. 
  • Generate test reports and system release reports. 
  • Work with Product Development and NPI teams to troubleshoot, investigate and identify performance/quality issues. 

About You

  • 2+ years’ experience in a systems engineering role or test environment for high tech devices
  • Bachelor’s degree in Mechatronics, Systems Engineering or similar related technical field
  • Knowledge of Python for hardware automation and data analysis
  • Enthusiasm and motivation to take ownership of a project
  • Professional, customer-focussed attitude


  • Experience with a requirements management system (e.g. Jama, IBM DOORS, etc.).
  • Experience in automotive, sensors, or calibration, especially LiDAR.
  • Previous start-up experience in the same or similar role.
  • Knowledge of middleware and communication frameworks like ROS.

Be part of a high-performance team

We work toward our goals by being in constant communication in person and through a range of technologies. We also have big ears for feedback from customers to help us continually improve the Baraja experience. We are pretty good at what we do (but definitely not perfect), so you’ll be learning from and working with a top-flight team on a mission to be better every day.

What matters to us

We believe that our culture is one of our most important assets and we’ve wrapped it up with three key values that we do our best to live up to every day:  

  • Hustle to deliver on hard and meaningful problems - Passion to achieve. Resilience & learning. What's the next challenge?
  • Develop sustained high performance - It’s not enough to design amazing products, we need to design the means to manufacture these products, at scale.
  • Build the machine that builds the machine - Great teams make great things. They also respectfully challenge each other to reach the next milestone.

What are you waiting for? If this role excites you, we’re keen to have a chat!
