Delphi Plans to Add 150 Jobs to Autonomous Vehicle Division at RIDC

Delphi Automotive, Plc – a UK-based supplier of technologies for the automotive and commercial vehicle market – announced plans to nearly triple its technology team in the Pittsburgh region by hiring 150 additional employees over the next year. Currently located at RIDC Industrial Park in O’Hara Township, the global company has technology centers in 15 cities but was directed to Pittsburgh, where its software development is happening. Delphi has plans for additional space to accommodate its growth, which includes positions dedicated to continuing its automated vehicle algorithm development, such as project managers; automated driving engineers in motion planning, perception and localization; research and development software engineers; systems administrators and development and operations engineer.

“Pittsburgh is actually a very good market … it’s a smaller market when you think about roboticists or software engineers,” said Glen De Vos, senior vice president and CTO of Delphi. “But it has a really good supply.”

Delphi entered the Pittsburgh market in 2015 when it acquired Carnegie Mellon University spinout Ottomatika. With this investment, Delphi joins Uber, Ford, Aurora Innovation and a number of other companies in the Pittsburgh region that are dedicated to autonomous vehicles research and development.
