Mechatronics Engineer -  Automation / Robotics



n       Attractive Remuneration Package


n       Lead role in Development of pioneering Technology


n       Ground floor Opportunity with Early-Stage Company



This is an exciting opportunity to 'get your foot in the door' with an
early-stage, industry leader and to play a key role in the development
of world first automation technology, while enjoying the lifestyle
benefits that only South East Queensland can offer.


Established in 2009, our client already plays a lead commercialisation
role in the emerging field of robotic agriculture, which offers
significant environmental, economic and productivity benefits to the
agricultural industry (as global food demand continues to grow).


Pivotal to the next stage of product development, the opportunity now
exists for a skilled programmer to facilitate the technology transfer
process for an autonomous ground robot system, from the research phase
(substantially complete) through development and into production.


Reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer, in this role you
will: work with subject matter experts and end users to identify and
address key issues; refine/redevelop existing code and implement onto
field prototypes; perform system and interoperability tests; carry out
defect investigation and root cause analysis; perform debugging
including on-site testing/fault reproduction; deliver high quality
software results in line with industry standards and organisational
requirements; create relevant systems documentation; perform in a manner
consistent with the organisation's commitment to agile techniques and
continuous improvement; and more.


Your success in this challenging and rewarding role will be underpinned
by your: strong software development skills, using C++ within a Linux
environment; well developed GUI design skills; understanding of the
systems development lifecycle and Agile development techniques; ability
to work independently; and flexible but focused 'can do' approach.


Experience with sensor integration algorithm development, motor control
systems, ROS and/or Open CV is also desirable.


An understanding of machine vision, image processing and machine
learning will be distinct advantage, as will demonstrated experience
within a mechatronics, electrical or software engineering context.


While it is envisaged that you will most likely have had industry
experience, both seasoned professionals and astute graduates are also
encouraged to apply; with each application being considered on its
merits. Our client is an equal opportunity employer.


This role will be based in Brisbane with regular on-site/on-farm visits
to central Queensland as required. With the Gold and Sunshine Coasts at
its doorstep, Brisbane is arguably Australia's most liveable capital
city and renowned globally for the lifestyle it affords.


Please forward your application, quoting Reference Number SE10714, by
Monday, 14 July 2014.
