5D Robotics is coming to Greater Boston!
We recently opened an algorithms group on Mass. Ave in Cambridge and are looking to hire some local talent. The work will cover a wide range of topics and fields, so candidates need to be comfortable picking up new skills. Robotics is still young, so an ideal candidate would be broadly read to understand how similar problems are being attacked in more mature fields.
All work for the immediate future will be in simulation, so candidates will need to become very comfortable operating in rviz and Gazebo. As time goes on, we will acquire test space and begin shipping robots in from our Carlsbad office.
5D Robotics is a small company that has been doing R&D projects for the past several years while developing our core capabilities. We write software for mobile robots and create solutions for companies in need of automation. 5D has developed some amazing technology and we are ready to start deploying robots in the real world. We are on a high growth trajectory, so come join us in helping to usher in the age of robots!
We need roboticists with a variety of backgrounds, but with an emphasis on mobile ground robots. All experience levels are invited to apply. At 5D, every project is unique and interesting. Every employee has a chance to make meaningful contributions while working with a great team. We encourage creativity and innovation backed up by intelligent decision making.
Required skills - Proficiency in programming in C++. Linux proficiency Theoretical and practical knowledge of robotic systems Bachelor's degree in relevant field or equivalent experience Familiarity with ROS Practical and theoretical knowledge of some of the following areas and interest in all Probabilistic Robotics Behavioral Robotics Control Systems Computer Vision Motion Planning Estimation and Navigation Non-Linear Optimization Filtering
Nice to have - Experience with large code bases Experience with DVCS's such as Git and Mercurial. Previous work with open source software and similar systems. Comfort with Gazebo simulator and rviz Experience with robotic hardware
