SENIOR ROBOTICS ENGINEER
Description

Beyond the Robotics Specialist position, this position adds responsibilities
to identify technical direction and to lead the design, development, and
implementation of a significant component of a complex system. Identifying
technical direction includes identifying and prioritizing new work that
addresses weaknesses of or adds substantial new features to current systems;
decomposing such work into smaller tasks for less senior personnel; and
building development plans for small teams to execute. Responsibilities may
also include assisting the project director in formalizing and tracking such
plans, in presenting plans and progress to the customer, in tasking small
teams to execute such plans, and in monitoring risks during the execution of
such plans. It is expected that this position will supervise from one to
seven engineers as well as support personnel. This position requires
advanced formal engineering or computer science education, superior problem
solving skills, and independent decision-making ability. Systems being
constructed typically require design and development of: artificial
intelligence, machine learning techniques, computer vision, path planning,
real-time control algorithms, sensor interfaces, serial and Ethernet
communication software, simulation, and graphical user interfaces.
