Robotics Engineer

San Francisco, California
Engineering
Full-time
We are building the future of construction.

Our mission is to take the latest sensors from self-driving cars, retrofit them into proven equipment from the job site, and develop a suite of autonomous software designed specifically for the requirements of construction and earthmoving. And over the last two years, with a team of dedicated engineers, roboticists, and construction experts, that’s what we’ve done. It hasn’t been easy—in fact, no one has ever done what we’re doing—but with over $100 billion in heavy equipment services performed in the US each year, it feels like we’re on to something.

We're backed by a $15M Series A from NEA and Founders Fund—two of the largest and most successful venture capital firms in the world. And we’re already deployed on active construction sites, with a clear path to scaling our business.

Job Description

As a robotics engineer on our team you’ll be designing, developing, testing and improving our autonomous construction equipment. You’ll be a generalist, doing everything from optimizing controllers to designing high-level planners for new to construction tasks to improving the accuracy of our object recognition systems. You’ll have a significant impact on the product road map, and you’ll deploy code every day.
