Job Description:

The Company

Miso Robotics is transforming the restaurant industry and making a real impact on the world.

Miso Robotics is writing an epic new story for the restaurant industry. We've developed a robotic kitchen assistant, Flippy, that can perform a variety of kitchen tasks including flipping burgers and running the deep fryer. Our product is a robotic arm on a rail that fits into existing kitchens along existing cook lines and is designed to work with existing equipment alongside kitchen workers. Under the hood, Flippy relies on our platform which combines deep learning and other computer vision technologies with optimization-based scheduling and nonlinear control to adapt quickly to a variety of kitchen workflows, while achieving graceful and efficient motion.

The challenge of bringing robotics into commercial kitchens requires many disciplines to come together. The compositions of teams at Miso Robotics reflect this multidisciplinary nature of our work. We have built a world-class team and we are looking for more exceptional people to join us. If you believe, like we do, that the future of the kitchen involves robotics and artificial intelligence (HINT: It definitely does) and if you want to count yourself among the handful of lucky people who've found themselves with the opportunity to solve this problem, then Miso Robotics might be the right place for you!

The Role

As a Robotics Mechanical Engineer on the Miso team, you will use your expertise in mechanical engineering to own the design, prototype, and commercialization of mechanical components of our robotic kitchen automation system.

  • Design, prototype, and build mechanical modules for robotic systems
  • Implement rigorous testing protocols
  • Iterate on designs to drive long term reliability
  • Build and maintain detailed component CAD models

  • Work within a team to ideate, review and improve product designs
  • Identify and evaluate component suppliers and vendors
  • Maintain inventory and BOM for parts within the system
  • Integrate mechanical modules with other systems (electrical, electronic, software etc.)
  • Work with third-party vendors to procure and build parts
  • Establish supply chain and assembly paths for large-scale manufacturing
  • Design and simulate component parts to reduce cost and increase reliability
  • Deploy complex electro-mechanical systems at scale
  • Participate in design sessions with your team to build a shared understanding of the product
  • Attend daily stand ups with your team where you strategize on the work for the day
  • Maintain documentation on the systems you create
  • Review bug reports, work with QA to identify root causes, create automated tests to demonstrate these bugs, and implement fixes

    What You Need in Order to Succeed in this Role

    Technical Requirements
    • Advanced degree with relevant work in Mechanical Engineering
    • 5+ years of mechanical engineering experience designing, building and testing AI powered mechanical systems or robots

    • Proficiency in using GD&T for creating detailed part/assembly drawings
    • Experience using 3D printing for rapid prototyping (Formlabs, Flashforge, Lulzbot, Ultimaker, Makerbot)
    • Experience in designing and building automated systems
    • Ability to work well in small teams and leave a positive impact on working culture
    • Ability to communicate well with people from different areas of expertise - from customers to designers to software developers
    • Familiar with the overall product design process with knowledge of the level of detail it takes to take a product from prototype to market

      Preferred Qualifications
      • Experience with commercial kitchen appliances and equipment
