Robotics Controls Software Engineer


This is a Full-time position in Pasadena, TX posted May 19, 2021.

Full-time position based in Pasadena, CA
OffWorld 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.

OffWorlds first challenge is developing and maturing a modular robotic system for mining on Earth–our robots will go deeper underground than human miners can, eliminate the need for humans to work in life-threatening underground environments, and dramatically reduce the environmental footprint and cost of mining.

Our development work is primarily funded by a customer–a forward-thinking mining company.
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 sensory information with cutting edge machine learning (ML) for control and decision making.

We are currently looking for a Robotics Controls Software Engineer who will be responsible for implementing controls systems for autonomous navigation (SLAM) as well as closed-loop control of critical payload functions at the component and system level.
Your work will entail both design input and implementation of the modular control system architecture for our bot systems.

You will be responsible for developing and integrating the controls algorithms, including sensor and actuator selection and integration, algorithm implementation, and integration and test at the component and system level.

The work will focus on the implementation of robust intrinsically safe components, with maximum levels of reliability, performance, and efficiency.

You will be responsible for the design, development, and integration of autonomous navigation modules for our mobility platform as well as the development of closed-loop control, including computer vision-based algorithms for payload systems.

Immediate projects you will work on include: integration of motion planning and collision avoidance software modules in ROS, simulation development, and testing in Gazebo, sensor and actuator integration, and unit, component, subsystem, and system-level testing in the field & development of closed-loop control for autonomous payload functions.
To hit the ground running, you need:
MSc or higher in aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, robotics, mechatronics, computer science or equivalent Practical experience with the design and implementation of software controls modules for autonomous mobility for EVs, drones, or robotic arms (past industry position or internship); power & electronics systems integration is a plus Practical experience with the design and implementation of algorithms for a range of problems in motion planning, localization, and classical computer vision in Python/C++ Proficiency in coordinate transforms, linear algebra, sensor integration, and calibration.

Experience working with open source libraries like OpenCV, PCL, and MoveiT Extensive knowledge of ROS, Python, C++, and Matlab/Simulink..

Python and ROS proficiency is a must.

Familiarity with Linux operating system, Embedded Software, Assembly, machine learning, deep learning, reinforcement learning is a plus Ability to effectively collaborate and communicate with your peers while maintaining a friendly, safe, and accepting environment.

Nothing-is-impossible attitude
In a nutshell, we offer
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 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 Youve demonstrated you are The Right Stuff
