Job Description:

www.offworld.aiPrincipal SLAM Engineer - Perception and MappingBased in Pasadena, CAOffWorld is a robotics startup working on developing amobilerobotic 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,NOAA,MaxarTechnologies, CERN, Reaction Engines, SAFRAN, Surrey Satellites and Cisco.OffWorld'sfirst challenge is developing and maturing a modular robotic system forextremeenvironmentson Earth. Ourrobots willgo deeper underground and farthest on Earth than humans can,eliminate the need for humans to work in life-threatening environmentsin mining, construction, tunneling and other dangerousindustries,and dramatically reduce the environmental footprint and cost ofoperationsin key economies on Earth and beyond.We 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 sensor information, cutting edge classical/machine learning (ML) algorithms and a robotics real-time system platform for control, decision making and execution.We are seeking a highly skilled Senior SLAM Engineer with expertise in Perception and Mapping to join our team. As a member of the Perception team, you will be responsible for leading the design and implementation of state-of-the-art algorithms for SLAM in mobile robotics applications. You will work closely with other engineers to create robust and reliable modules that will deliver the best performance in real-world environments.Key Responsibilities:

  • Develop and implement SLAM algorithms for mobile robotics applications in both GPS enabled, and GPS denied environments.
  • Develop and maintain robust sensor calibration routines.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to integrate the software stack with the real robot system.
  • Develop simulation and real-world test environments to verify successful, safe, and reliable operation of the SLAM modules.
  • Continuously stay up-to-date with the latest research and developments in SLAM and Perception and Mapping.To hit the ground running, you need:
    • Advanced degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or related field.
    • At least 3 years of work experience in developing and implementing state-of-the-art algorithms for SLAM in mobile robotics applications.
    • Solid background in one or more SLAM related areas such as visual and / or LiDAR SLAM, semantic SLAM, and VIO.
    • Experience developing state estimation algorithms fusing information from cameras, IMUs, GPS and other sensors.
    • Proficient in Python, C++, ROS, ROS 2 (optional).
    • Strong problem-solving skills, attention to detail, and ability to work independently as well as part of a team.
    • Excellent communication skills and ability to present complex technical information to both technical and non-technical audiences.In a nutshell, we offer the:
      • Opportunity to sink your teeth into cutting edge industrial robotics problems
      • Opportunity to contribute to the mission of transforming how we mine on Earth today and how we will one day mine on the Moon, asteroids & Mars
      • Opportunity to work with a kind, brilliant and supportive team
      • Opportunityto join theOffWorldteam if
