Boston Dynamics, HR Team
We are looking for someone who can work as a key member of our multi-disciplinary team. It will involve creating dynamic simulations of robotic systems for early stage development as well as on-robot testing to deliver real world machines.
We require a MS or PhD degree in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, aeronautical engineering or computer science plus 2 or more years of relevant experience. A balance between analytic ability and practical implementation on hardware systems will be expected. Simulation experience is useful. You'll do well here if you like thinking about how things move and developing algorithms to make machines realize your vision. Strong interpersonal, speaking, and writing skills are required. We desire experience ranging from concept through build, test, debug, and delivery. We are looking for experience in several of the following areas:
• C, C++ programming for real-time control and sensor processing
• Implementing high-bandwidth feedback control in hardware
• Developing simple models of complex systems
• Sensing and state estimation
• Control of multi-DOF systems
• Familiarity with multi-body kinematics
• Dynamic simulation
• Path planning
We are seeking a talented and motivated Electrical Engineer who will be responsible for design, construction and troubleshooting of compact and reliable electrical systems in robotics. This includes electrical sub-system design, integration, pcb layout, and frequent hands-on work in lab building and debugging electrical systems. Tasks will range from working on small test systems to fully integrated robots in the field. A successful candidate must also demonstrate an ability to work in large teams and communicate effectively with other engineers.
We are looking for someone who can work as a key member of our multi-disciplinary team to build and test reliable electrical systems in robotics. To get this job you must be able to support all aspects of robot operation (both indoor and outdoor) and maintenance. This may include debugging a sensor, chasing down a short circuit, or assembling and testing new electronics. Tasks will range from working on small test systems to fully integrated robots in the field. A successful candidate must also demonstrate an ability to work in large teams and communicate effectively with other technicians and engineers.
Boston Dynamics is seeking a Machine Learning Engineer to help enable novel autonomous robotics applications and enhance human robot interaction. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. demonstrating ability to design and execute a novel application of machine learning. Masters level candidates with strong experience will also be considered.
We are seeking a Robotics Engineer to join a small, fast moving team working to give our legged robots the ability to navigate through forests and across mountains. Combining state of the art sensors with unusually mobile robots, and working with perception experts from multiple organizations, our projects offer the opportunity to make autonomous systems work on high profile, outdoor robots.
The ideal candidate has experience participating in hands-on robotics research and expertise with motion planning and LIDAR/vision processing. He or she should be a MS, PhD, or highly-skilled BS, and should have a strong software engineering background, including knowledge of C++, python, object oriented design, and experience on a team delivering real systems. Examples of excellent practical experience include calibrating cameras, model building from point clouds, data fusion for localization, object tracking, and getting a robot from here to there in the real world.
Our engineers write lots of software, conduct sensor experiments, test robots on rough terrain in the rain and snow, communicate results to experts and laymen, operate with the team to pull off high-profile demos, and develop innovative solutions to new problems every day.
