Robotics Engineer

San Francisco, California
Construction has long been the engine of economic growth. But faced with cost overruns, critical infrastructure backlog, and an unprecedented labor shortage, the industry is in need of meaningful innovation to keep up.

At Built Robotics, we are automating heavy equipment to make construction safer, faster, and cheaper. Our team is developing a software suite that leverages off-the-shelf sensors to make equipment fully autonomous. 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, we believe 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. With our technology already deployed on active construction sites, we have a clear path to scaling our business and you’ll have a foundational role in charting this growth and bringing innovation to one of the world’s most critical industries.


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.
