Robotics Engineer - Localization and Navigation

Pliant Energy Systems seeks a Robotics Engineer with skills and experience applicable to underwater localization, navigation, mapping and autonomy.

You will work on the development of our Office of Naval Research-funded underwater/amphibious robotic technology and be involved in other upcoming robotic/mechatronic projects. Your first project will involve endowing Pliant’s early-stage amphibious robot with autonomous surveying capabilities. This work requires familiarity with robotic localization and mapping using inertial dead-reckoning techniques and/or sparse and noisy position data, and experience deploying navigation, perception, and localization algorithms on real-world hardware.

This position is an opportunity to work on cutting-edge soft machines and to be part of the fast-growing hardware-focused tech community at NewLab in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

About you:

  • Master’s or Ph.D. degree in computer science, electrical engineering, robotics, physics, or similar.

  • Strong programming skills (Python, C, C++)

  • Direct experience in robotic navigation and localization. Special consideration will be given to candidates with demonstrated experience localizing underwater robots using low-cost techniques combining inertial dead-reckoning with sparse sonar data.

  • Big plus if you have generalist experience with robotics, mechatronic system design, selection and integration of hardware for prototype robotic systems, and/or have strong general electronic design and debugging skills, since we are still a small team.

  • Strong CAD/CAM skills a plus, especially SolidWorks.

  • Must be US citizen or Green Card holder (due to US Govt. contract restrictions).

Start date: Fall/winter 2019
