As a Robotics Software Engineer, you will be developing software to enable real time control, low latency vision systems, optimal planners, and much more. You will be designing & integrating features to  improve robotics systems in production such as grasp handling, real time decision making from external sensors, and novel robotic behaviors  for Dexterity’s robotics applications. You will develop introspection, unit tests, and debugging tools to understand the behavior of your software, and deploy it in the field. 
What we do
At Dexterity, we believe robots can positively transform the world.  Our breakthrough technology frees people to do the creative, inspiring, problem-solving jobs that humans do best by enabling robots to handle repetitive and physically difficult work.
We’re starting with warehouse automation, where the need for smarter, more resilient supply chains impacts millions of lives and businesses around the world.   Dexterity's full-stack robotics systems pick, move, pack, and collaborate with human-like skill, awareness, and learning capabilities.  Our systems are software-driven, hardware-agnostic, and have already picked over 15 million goods in production.  And did we mention we’re customer-obsessed?  Every decision, large and small, is driven by one question – how can we empower our customers with robots to do more than they thought was possible?
Dexterity is one of the fastest growing companies in robotics, backed by world-class investors such as Kleiner Perkins, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Obvious Ventures.  
Day to Day Activities:
