We are seeking a Senior Perception Software Engineer to join a small, fast-moving team working to create advanced robot prototypes and products. For the right candidate, we offer an opportunity to help set the agenda and organize the development of perception-aided autonomy for our unusually mobile robots
The ideal candidate has experience leading and participating in hands-on robotics perception research and development and is comfortable integrating results into motion planning and reactive control algorithms. Examples of excellent practical experience include data fusion for localization, object tracking, system calibration, model building and matching, and experience enabling robot navigation in the (complex) real world.
Our engineers write lots of software, conduct experiments, test robots on rough terrain in the rain and snow, communicate results to experts and laymen, operate with the team to pull off high-profile demonstrations, and develop innovative solutions to new problems every day. We are easy going and hardworking and hope you will be too. We are looking for experience in at least several of the following areas:
What we are looking for:
* Demonstrated experience leading a team * Collaborative development of perception and autonomy algorithms * Leadership in developing and deploying robot systems and tools for evaluating them * 6 + years experience with perception or motion planning on real-world robots * C/C++, Python * Knowledge of algorithms and data structures relevant to robotics * MS or PhD in robotics, computer science, or a related field
* Experience with various sensing technologies - (stereo cameras, lidars, etc) * Experience delivering a perception/autonomy system on a fielded system * Real-time software and control systems * An understanding of mechanics and dynamics
