Embedded Systems Engineer (Firmware Engineer) – Full Time

Do you like working on something from scratch? Is problem solving through teamwork in your DNA? Do you like the idea of seeing how your work impacts the bigger picture? Answer yes to any of these and you’ll fit right in here at HelloWorld Robotics. We are a smart team of doers that work passionately to apply cutting edge advances in robotics and software to solve current
last mile delivery’s issues with building autonomous ground-based delivery robots. At HelloWorld Robotics, we will give you the tools and support you need to invent with us in ways that are rewarding, fulfilling and fun.

 

We are an emerging leader in the development of outdoor navigation software that enables autonomous driving of robotic vehicles and you will help bring this navigation software to the next level. Using your knowledge of both perception and navigation systems, you will improve how our delivery robots localize within an outdoor environment and how they navigate through challenging terrain. You will work to evaluate and implement the state of the art in relevant algorithms and apply these in practical ways for our customers. Additionally, you would probably have fun driving our robots around outside, always striving to make our systems more robust. Through your work, you will be enabling the use of robotics to make last mile delivery
smarter, cheaper and safer.

 

As an Embedded Software Engineer (Firmware Engineer), you will participate in a cross-functional design team and perform system level design of microcontroller-based modules in our delivery robots and other relevant tasks in robotics. You will also get involved with real world testing in outdoors.
