When you’re building something that’s never been done before, it’s important to feel safe — safe to experiment, safe to fail, safe to share, and safe to express yourself. At Cruise, we’re committed to the safety, inclusivity, and development of our employees from the recruiting process through retirement — and every professional milestone along the way.

Cruise offers a unique opportunity to not only build a robot that drives more safely than a human but also prove that it can be done. This is truly one of the great challenges of our time.
We value who you are. It’s why we encourage Cruisers to connect and build a sense of belonging. From Cruise Community Groups (Asian & Pacific Islanders, Chai-paani, Cruisers of the African Diaspora, Empowering Women of Cruise, Families at Cruise, Latinx, LGBTQruise, Middle Easterners @ Cruise, and Veterans) to Cruise Clubs (Yackademia, Sustainability, Cyclists, and more), there’s opportunity for community at every turn.
At Cruise, how we treat one another is just as important as what we achieve. These are the core values that ground our work and decisions.
Distractions slow us down. We’re proud to say “no,” so that when we do say “yes,” we can do our best possible work.
We get things done, even if others say it can’t be done. We do what we said we’d do. We value the right behaviors and actions as much as the results themselves.
We pursue facts, respectfully challenge assumptions, and clearly define objectives. When we disagree, we provide additional context and consider multiple perspectives.
We work as one team to deliver incredible results. We believe better solutions come from diverse teams and unique perspectives. We win or lose as a team, and we support each other during tough times.
Every failure is an opportunity to learn, and every success is an opportunity to be thankful. Acknowledge the gaps, and commit to learning, growing, and improving.
Cruise offers benefits that ensure you and your family feel supported, safe, and healthy—whether working onsite or working from home.
By teaming up with General Motors, Honda, and Microsoft, we have an ecosystem of hardware, software, and manufacturing excellence that is unprecedented in our industry. We employ their world-class leadership in car design, manufacturing, AI, and cloud computing, so we can focus on what we do best: designing the software and hardware unique to self-driving.
GM, Honda, Microsoft, SoftBank, T. Rowe Price, and Walmart have invested billions in Cruise. Their backing demonstrates confidence in our progress, team, and vision and makes us one of the leading autonomous vehicle organizations in the industry. Our deep resources greatly accelerate our development.
As a majority-owned subsidiary of GM, Cruise operates autonomously, just like our vehicles. We have our own governance, board of directors, investors, and equity. Our independence allows us to not just work on the bleeding-edge of technology, but also define it.
You won’t just own your work here; you’ll have the potential to own equity in Cruise, too. The value of Cruise equity has increased at a compound annual growth rate of more than 100% since GM’s first investment in Cruise. We are competing in a market that is projected to expand to $557 billion by 2026, which gives our company valuation room to grow. We’re just beginning our journey—come join us.*
Using cutting-edge technology, we design and develop custom hardware that power our software stack, such as the sensors (cameras, radars, acoustics, LiDARs), compute and network systems, telematics, and infotainment. Thanks to our deep resources and partners at GM, our Hardware engineers are uniquely positioned to transform the market by designing our sophisticated AV system reliably, at scale.
