Job Description:

www.offworld.aI\nFull-time position based in Pasadena, CA\nMinimum Experience: 5 years\n \nOffWorld is a fifth-year robotics startup working on developing a robotic workforce for heavy industrial jobs on Earth, Moon, asteroids & Mars. OffWorld was founded by an experienced engineering team drawing on decades of tackling formidable engineering challenges at NASA, ESA, SSL/MDA, CERN, Reaction Engines, SAFRAN, Surrey Satellites and Cisco. OffWorld---s first challenge is developing and maturing a modular robotic system for extreme environments on Earth--our robots will go deeper underground than humans can, eliminate the need for humans to work in life-threatening environments in construction, tunneling and other dangerous applications and dramatically reduce the environmental footprint and cost in key industrial sectors.\n \nWe have designed a modular robotic architecture that focuses on maximizing the commonality and reusability across components for fast deployment and optimization. Our robotic systems combine sensory information with cutting edge machine learning (ML) for control and decision making.\n \nOffWorld is seeking a talented and motivated Senior Robotics and Controls Engineer to lead a fast-moving team working to create advanced robot systems. Your role consists of leading control, perception, and/or navigation algorithm design and implementation, software architecture design, integration with sim and real hardware, and oversight of system maturation to production level. Machine Learning algorithm development and integration experience are strongly sought out. As a successful candidate, you must have theoretical and practical experience in several of the following areas: control theory, sensor fusion, filtering, arm positioning and control, forward and inverse kinematics, computer vision, ROS, motion planning, and collision avoidance, SLAM and autonomous navigation. Experience in software project management is also required, including converting system-level requirements into software tasks, setting work plans and timelines, coordinating with team members to track progress, and provide assistance in sub-system development.\n \nYour work will be instrumental in the company---s fast-paced growth. You will be leading the implementation of your team---s controls solutions with our extreme environment robots, including frequent hands-on work in the lab building and debugging the robotic systems, all the way to working on fully integrated robots in the field.\n \nDemonstrated ability to lead the work of a team along with the required communication skills to effectively interact with the overall organization is a must.\n \nTo hit the ground running, you need:\n \n MSc or Ph.D. in Robotics, Controls, Mechatronics, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or equivalent with at least 5 years of experience in the industry Practical experience implementing robotic algorithms through production on real robotic systems. Theoretical and practical experience in several of the following areas: control theory, sensor fusion, filtering, arm positioning and control, forward and inverse kinematics, computer vision and perception, ROS, motion planning, and collision avoidance, SLAM, and autonomous navigation. Practical experience in the implementation of motion planning and collision avoidance algorithms, including dynamic object detection and avoidance, in particular in GPS denied and/or unstructured environments. Must have knowledge of the state-of-the-art approaches for one of these problems. Demonstrated ability to evaluate different approaches for a given problem and provide a recommendation on the implementation approach, taking into account reliability and ease of implementation. Extensive knowledge of control systems as it applies to robotics, practical implementations of controllers in real systems, creating and implementing algorithms to solve arbitrary problems that may arise, machine learning algorithm integration. Practical experience with the design and implementation of end-to-end robotic systems Experience in software project management, software design, version control, and gitflow Strong Python and C++ programming skills Strong experience in the design and implementation of classical computer vision algorithms in Python/C++, in particular in the development and implementation of computer vision pipelines in Python/C++ using Open CV. Working understanding of command-line Linux or similar operating system, MATLAB, Simulink, Rviz, and Gazebo Machine learning knowledge, in particular in the area of deep learning and reinforcement learning is a plus History of mentoring junior engineers Ability to effectively collaborate and communicate while maintaining a friendly, safe, and accepting environment. Nothing-is-impossible attitude \n In a nutshell, we offer:\n \n Opportunity to sink your teeth into cutting edge industrial robotics problems Opportunity to contribute to the mission of transforming how we operate in extreme environments on Earth today and how we will one day do so on the Moon, asteroids & Mars Opportunity to attend relevant conferences in the line of research Competitive package Offer to join the OffWorld team full-time--if You are as crazy-excited about the mission as we are You---ve demonstrated you are The Right Stuff \n \n Powered by JazzHR\n \nPFrQFNc5WM
