Robotics Software Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to not just develop software, but to build a system that will redefine how robots sense and navigate through their environment?  As a full-stack developer, you can solve a problem with a complete end-to-end solution in a fast-paced, agile environment. We’re looking for a developer with the skills needed to build research-grade algorithms and software for mobile robot perception from vision to demonstration-ready system.

This role is more than just coding. We need a full-stack developer who will use their passion to learn new tools and techniques, and identify and implement system improvements. Using ROS, C++, and custom-developed algorithms, you’ll work with the development team to build and test Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) software using various sensors and platforms.  You’ll analyze the needs and the environment to make sure the solution you’re developing considers the current architectures and operating environment, as well as future functionality and enhancements. Join us as we build systems to change the DoD’s robotics capability for the better.

Empower change with us.
