Full-time
THE COMPANY
Our mission is to build the Covariant Brain, a universal AI to give robots the ability to see, reason and act on the world around them. Bringing AI from research in the lab to the infinite variability and constant change of our customer’s real-world operations requires new ideas, approaches and techniques.

Success in the real world requires a team that represents that world: diversity of backgrounds, points of view, and experiences. Our common denominator: ambitious expectations, love of learning, empathy for those around us, and a team-first mindset. Read more about our culture at https://www.keyvalues.com/covariant .

As a Software Engineer for Robotics & Control you will:

    • Design and build software for simulation, collision checking, motion planning, and robot control.
    • Deliver previously-impossible robotics capabilities that solve real needs for our partners and customers.
    • Collaborate with, learn from, and support a diverse and cross-functional team, including mechanical, electrical and robotics engineers, AI/ML researchers, and business development.

We're looking for candidates with:

    • At least 2 years of industry experience as a software engineer.
    • A track record of successfully designing, planning, building, maintaining, and operating production-grade software systems.
    • Commitment to continuous learning and willingness to work in a variety of technical areas as needed, to solve real problems and deliver business impact.
