Do you want to get in on the ground floor of a fast growing, VC backed, robotic logistics company? Then join Pickle Robot! Founded by an all ages cast of MIT alum, we are teaching off-the-shelf robot arms how to pick up boxes and play tetris with them. Video
At Pickle, our goal is to work alongside people in the very messy world of the loading dock, reducing the backbreaking human effort that goes into getting your online orders to your door.
Robots can now autonomously move themselves around; the next frontier is doing something useful with their hands when they get somewhere. If you are excited by walking/biking to work in Cambridge, MA to spend the day helping solve mechatronic systems problems with an incredible team of engineers then visit please apply and send us a resume!

Pickle Robot Company is a fun place with a lot of moving parts and projects in action. The work has human scale physicality, lots of problems to solve in the lab, and on-site in-production realities at customer deployments.  This particular job is not travel heavy but all engineers are encouraged to visit customer sites.
