Robotics Engineer


TurbineOne is the frontline perception company. We deliver stronger situational awareness to first-responders and the U.S. Department of Defense. Our proprietary software solution is designed from the ground-up to operate in communications-contested and dangerous environments so that public sector heroes can take better actions against the threats they face. This position is geography-flexible and will report directly to the CTO.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Conduct research to determine the parameters of a robotic application
  • Design robotic systems from start to finish
  • Develop and implement software that will control robots
  • Create prototypes and work on necessary components (e.g. microprocessors)
  • Develop cost-effective and efficient processes to produce the machines
  • Perform integration tests and quality control
  • Apply machine learning techniques
  • Create complete documentation for robotic systems
  • Monitor the use of robotic systems and optimize their functionality
  • Troubleshoot defects in the robot design
  • Keep abreast of advancements in robotics and relevant fields of engineering

On a Typical Day You Would:

  • Build and debug applications that enable robots to achieve localized waypoints using ROS.
  • Determine pose and orientation of sensors and be familiar with transforms to enable accurate localization.
  • Integrate GPS data into state estimation algorithms to ensure robot state is always correct despite negative factors like a robot being kicked or moved in odd ways.

Desired Qualifications:

  • High standard of ethics, grit, integrity and moral character
  • 5+ years of work experience
  • College degree/certifications in Engineering, Computer Science, or similar field
  • Positive and solution-oriented mindset
  • Previous experience as a robotics engineer or similar role
  • Well-versed in computer science, applied physics, and mechanics
  • Proficient in CAD/CAM software
  • Knowledge of cost, efficiency, and productivity optimization methods
  • Ability to develop and evaluate integrated systems
  • Experience in machine learning
  • Willingness to embrace the Startup Culture of moving fast, being insatiably curious, celebrating often, embracing uncertainty, and having a personal desire to improve other peoples’ lives
