Systems/Electrical Engineer (Navigation, Planning and Control)
Job Type: Full-Time We are seeking an experienced, hands-on Systems
Engineer to help lead the company from early-stage product
development through the commercialization of autonomous field
service vehicles, robotics and other automation applications. The
right candidate must be ready to contribute at a system
architecture level, guiding technical teams in the advancement of
complex electrical-mechanical systems, while also providing
individual contributions developing high-quality control code.
Define and execute both the short-term and long-term engineering
and prototype plans, in localization, mapping, path planning,
control, and other related domains, to support current and
next-generation product development. Work with the local and global
business, product, and prototype teams to define the system
architecture and technical requirements. Design and implement the
autonomous navigation components of our robotic systems, e.g., pose
estimation, localization, mapping path planning, motion control,
visual servo control, and obstacle avoidance. Debug and test the
overall autonomous navigation system and ensure that requirements
are met. Track the state-of-the-art technology and conduct
fundamental research when needed, and incorporate into new product
development. Build connections and collaborations with academic
institutions and industrial partners. Domestic and international
travel may be required for internal/external meetings, conferences,
and partner discussions.
Degree in Mechanical Engineering, and/or Electrical Engineering,
and/or other relevant educational background. Advanced degree or
comparable industry experience in creating autonomous robotic
navigation. Experience in system architecture, design, and
development. Proficient in using mainstream microcontrollers and
SOC devices for signal processing, computer vision, SLAM, and
control algorithms. Ability to write clean and efficient code.
Drive system integration and testing of autonomous navigation
systems and integration with other key components in the overall
robotic system. Trackable applied experience in the area of
autonomous robotic navigation and SLAM. Excellent communication and
teamwork skills. Self-motivated and passionate about robotics and
AI. Opportunistic, problem-solving attitude and work demeanor.
Willing to work at different locations when/if necessary. Legal
authorization to work in the U.S. is required.
5+ years of industrial experience in successfully conducting
applied research in or the development of real robotic systems.
In-depth expertise with technical elements relevant to robot
hardware design with both system-level thinking and component-level
development. Passionate about exploring and implementing innovative
ideas and concepts. Familiar with building embedded robotic
platforms and implementing hardware related embedded software on
microcontrollers. Customer engagement with solid skills of
strategically thinking, business development, and excellent
execution to meet business requirements and deadlines. Work both
independently, with other team members, and lead teams in a
dynamic, and fast-paced environment.
