Job requirements

What does this role involve?

  • Contributing to the design and implementation of our core autonomous robotics software, including the areas of:
    • Localisation

    • 2D Motion planning and navigation for our ground mobile robots

    • Perception and use of sensors

    • Mapping

  • Architecting, designing and implementing processes for improving our software stack, including test and validation processes.

  • Developing new ideas to make robots more capable, and evaluating them by building and testing prototypes.

  • Contributing to planning of longer-term strategic work with other teams and business units.

  • Mentoring and collaborating with other team members.

As a senior member of the software engineering team, you will have responsibility for both implementation and system design. You will have the opportunity to contribute to cross-team planning efforts, and to shape the design of our platforms now and in the future.

You will need:

  • Proven experience developing commercial or industrial-scale robotics software at a senior technical leader level

  • Experience developing reliable, production-ready software using C++ and Python

  • Experience with Linux environments

  • Experience with ROS (Robot Operating System)

  • Experience using modern development practices, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, agile development, continuous build processes, and automated testing

  • Excellent spoken and written English communication skills

It would also be helpful to have:

  • Experience with ROS2

  • Hands on experience with navigation, sensor fusion or modern SLAM solutions and localisation techniques

  • Familiarity with robotics simulation

  • Experience developing robotics platforms using Docker

As a company, we’re still in the start-up phase of our life – we’re a small VC-funded team, but we have a great platform in an advanced stage of development. You’ll play a significant role in shaping the future of our products, culture, and engineering team.

We are a diverse, remote-friendly team (though we have an amazing office and workshop space in London). We have flexible working hours – as a hardware startup we have occasional important deadlines and site visits, but work-life balance is important to us, and we strive to keep disruption to a minimum.

You’ll receive a market-rate salary, stock options, and whatever equipment you need, as well as an annual training and conference budget. We use loads of open-source software, and we’d love for you to contribute to projects while you are here – and you’re welcome to take some time for personal projects too.
