Position Overview

The work we do at Autodesk touches nearly every person on the planet. By creating software tools for making buildings, machines, and even the latest movies, we influence and empower some of the most creative people in the world to solve problems that matter.

As a Software Engineer at Autodesk Research, you will be working side-by-side with world-class researchers and engineers to build new ML-powered product features that will help our customers imagine, design, and make a better world. You are a software engineer who is passionate about solving problems and building things. You have experience building scalable data pipelines to aggregate, prepare, and process data for use with machine learning. Your skills span across data processing and distributed systems with a strong software engineering base. You are excited to collaborate with AI researchers to build state-of-the-art generative AI features in Autodesk products. You are a good communicator and comfortable working at the intersection of research & product.

Location: The location of this role is flexible. We are a global team, located in London, San Francisco, Toronto, and remotely. Autodesk is a flexible hybrid-first company, allowing workers to work remotely, in an office, or a mix of both.


  • Collaborate on engineering projects for product with a diverse, global team of researchers and engineers

  • Process large, unstructured, disparate multi-modal (text, images, 3D models, code snippets, metadata) data sources into formats suitable for machine learning

  • Conduct and analyze experiments on data to provide insights

  • Produce data visualizations and summaries to communicate data characteristics to researchers and leadership

  • Work with our legal and trust teams to ensure compliant and ethical use of data

  • Develop and deploy data pipelines into secure remote environments respecting and demonstrating security best practices

  • Writing robust, testable code that is well documented and easy to understand

  • Analyze errors and provide solutions to problems that arise

Minimum Qualifications

  • BSc or MSc in Computer Science, or equivalent industry experience

  • Experience with software version control, unit tests, and deployment pipelines

  • Strong data modelling, architecture, and processing skills with varied data representations including 2D and 3D geometry

  • Experience with cloud services & architectures (AWS, Azure, etc.)

  • Excellent written communication skills to document code, architectures, and experiments

  • Experience with vector data stores

  • Proficiency with Linux systems and bash terminals

  • Knowledge of cloud architectures and networking

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience with computational geometry such as mesh or boundary representation data processing

  • Experience with CAD model search and retrieval, in PLM systems or other searchable CAD databases

  • Knowledge of statistics

  • Ability to analyze data and communicate results effectively using tools such as Pandas, Matplotlib, Seaborn, Plotly, R or others

  • Knowledge of the design, manufacturing, AEC, or media & entertainment industries

  • Experience with Autodesk or similar products (CAD, CAE, CAM, etc.)

The Ideal Candidate

  • A self-starter with initiative to search for solutions and execute on problems with minimal supervision

  • Comfortable building prototypes from scratch as well as writing maintainable code within existing codebases

  • A curious, creative problem-solver who is excited to learn & develop new technologies
