Job Description:

-www.offworld.aiSenior Perception and SLAM EngineerBased in Altadena, CAOffWorld is a robotics startup working on developing a---mobile---robotic workforce for heavy industrial jobs on Earth, Moon, asteroids & Mars. OffWorld was founded by an experienced engineering team drawing on decades of tackling formidable engineering challenges at NASA, ESA,---NOAA,---Maxar---Technologies, CERN, Reaction Engines, SAFRAN, Surrey Satellites and Cisco.---OffWorld's---first challenge is developing and maturing a modular robotic system for---extreme---environments---on Earth. Our---robots will---go deeper underground and farthest on Earth than humans can,---eliminate the need for humans to work in life-threatening environments---in mining, construction, tunneling and other dangerous---industries,---and dramatically reduce the environmental footprint and cost of---operations---in key economies on Earth and beyond. -We have designed a modular robotic architecture that focuses on maximizing the commonality and reusability across components for fast deployment and optimization. Our robotic systems combine sensor information, cutting edge classical/machine learning (ML) algorithms and a robotics real-time system platform for control, decision making and execution. - -We are looking for a -Senior Perception/SLAM Engineer -to lead -the integration of -state-of-the-art -classical and deep -learning algorithms for -SLAM/navigation. -You -will lead a team of engineers -working in the -design and implementation of -Visual and ML based SLAM -and navigation -algorithms for single and multi-unit/swarm -robot navigation. -Extensive experience with sensor fusion, -Visual SLAM and/or -different algorithmic approaches/latest research on SLAM -for -GPS based and -GPS denied environments is a must. -Experience with autonomous navigation, including latest research on -path planning and collision avoidance -is also a must. -You will be responsible for -integration and test -of robust intrinsically safe -modules, with maximum levels of reliability, -performance, -and efficiency. Your Team -will -work with -the -Mechatronics -and Software & Controls -Groups -to ensure -seamless, effective and safe -integration of the algorithmic stack with the real system. You will develop simulation and -real based test -environments -to verify the successful, safe and reliable operation of the modules you develop. - -To hit the ground running, you need: -

  • 5 years relevant experience + an advanced degree or 8+ years of relevant experience with a BS.
  • Extensive experience in the design and implementation of novel/high performance -Visual SLAM for mobile platforms -in both GPS based and -GPS -denied environments -(autonomous vehicles, robotics or IOT devices). -
