What Wayve employees think
I have never worked at a company where I felt so supported in structuring my work day (working hours as well as working locations) in exactly the way which works best for me and maximizes my productivity. The more flexibility and trust I am given, the better I feel like my output is as it feels more like working because I genuinely want to work and produce good results instead of working because I have to. I also love how much Wayve cares about work-life balance, as it is a very crucial aspect of my job for me. For me, Wayve has created an amazing work environment which makes me feel encouraged and supported in really striving to do my best work while establishing healthy work life boundaries.
The work environment is very flexible and if you get your work done you can do it in the office or at home. It is nice to come into the office a few days a week to have the full team collaborate but each team decides on what works best for them. Some people come into the office every day and some only 2-3 times a week. The office environment is very welcoming and I have found that it is very easy to meet people from other teams which makes seamless collaboration a big part of the company culture (everyone having lunch at about the same time and optional weekly coffee catchups being arranged by slack are very helpful with this).
People at Wayve are incredibly understanding when personal life requires more time or energy. Incredibly supportive company and leadership.
Working at Wayve
London, UK and Mountain View, California
Wayve is a leading developer of embodied intelligence for autonomous vehicles. We use AI to pioneer a next-generation approach to self-driving: AV2.0, which enables fleet operators to unlock the benefits of AV technology at scale.
Founded in 2017, Wayve is made up of a diverse team of experts in machine learning, autonomous vehicles and robotics. We were the first to deploy AVs on public roads with end-to-end deep learning. Today, our teams are based in London and California, and we're testing AVs in cities across the UK.
Inspired by our vision for a smarter, safer, more sustainable world, we're looking for people who are passionate about building breakthrough solutions to some of the world’s most important challenges. If you're looking for an exciting opportunity with a dynamic team, get in touch!
Flexible working at Wayve
At Wayve, we have certain safety-critical roles requiring people to be in the office five days a week. However, we still believe flexibility is key to happiness and productivity. We value work-life harmony and strive to provide equitable benefits that enable our people to achieve this, such as access to season ticket loans to help reduce the financial burden of commuting.
`For those in non-safety critical roles, we trust our people to be in charge of their time, depending on their individual and team needs. We encourage each team to agree on which days are best to work in person while remaining open to personal requirements. For example, some people choose to be hybrid (1-2 days from home).
Working from abroad: you can request up to two weeks a year of working abroad if your manager approves this request, and you can stay productive during this time. This enables our international staff to spend more time with their families.
We love dogs, and our office is dog friendly!
We also offer many benefits for our employees, including optional private healthcare insurance, on-site catering, enhanced parental leave, company social and clubs, and learning and development.
Approach to diversity & inclusion
Be part of a transformative industry. Our diversity, equity and inclusion approach enables us to build an AV solution that is more inclusive by design.
We see our product as a real-world manifestation of the people and the company that built it. Our journey requires collaboration, intentional diversity of thought and equity of opportunity. That’s why we strive to build a team of exceptional people who bring new perspectives, backgrounds and experiences to our culture and reflect the diversity of the world around us.
As a values-led company, we aim to lead DEI progress and cultural change within our organisation, the AI and AV communities, and society.
What do we think of Wayve?
We loved working with Richard and the team at Wayve. It was clear from the outset that Wayve offers a great hybrid set-up offering its employees (where operational restrictions allow) to work remotely a couple of days a week, allowing for a great balance of in-person and work-from-home. With Dog-Friendly offices too we can see why employees love working at Wayve.
