    • Building robust, production-ready code for near-term deployment
    • Developing forward-looking advanced controllers and control algorithms for robotic arms to make our system increasingly performant, robust, and general

Experience and Skills You'll Need

    • BS in Computer Science, Robotics, or related field
    • 5+ years of experience in one or more robot control/motion planning areas, such as: path planning, trajectory optimization; inverse kinematics; motion planning, robotic software integration
    • Proficient in Rust/C++/Python development, including API design and architecture
    • A track record of successfully designing, building, and maintaining complex, real-time, multi-process software systems
    • Deep knowledge in robotic system design, integration, debugging, verification, and testing, especially for industrial robotic manipulators
    • Experience interfacing with low-level robotic hardware controllers
