Dear Colleague,
Could you please make the following job posting?  Much appreciated!

*POSITION TITLE: *Embedded Electronics Engineer

*ESSENTIAL JOB FUNCTIONS*: Initial task will be to aggregate data from two
USB cameras and RS-232C tactile sensor, process in an embedded PC and
transmit data via serial to a Fanuc robot controller.  Design and program
electronic systems associated with industrial automation (e.g. robotic
gripper systems); *primarily program embedded systems to acquire data from
sensors and transmit data via a variety of communications protocols (e.g.
USB, Ethernet).   *Assist CEO/ CTO in managing projects and workforce while
CEO/CTO is on travel.  Focus is on prototype and product development in
fast-paced start-up environment.

*SKILLS/ EXPERIENCE REQUIRED*: Linux, 3+ years programming embedded
systems, strong command of C/ C++, troubleshooting digital hardware, prior
experience with the following protocols: SPI, I2C, USB 2.0, RS-232/422.
Must have USB experience.

*SKILLS/ EXPERIENCE DESIRED*: Electrical CAD schematic/ board layouts;
familiarity with high-level programming languages like Matlab or Python,
industrial robots (in particular Fanuc and Kawasaki). Telecommunications
experience: GSM/ CDMA cellular modem, low power Bluetooth 4.0.  Mobile app
development (Objective C).

*EDUCATION*: BS or MS in computer science or electrical engineering; MS in
engineering management (or similar degree or training) is a big plus.

*COMPENSATION:  *Salary ($40,000 - $70,000 based on experience) *plus
equity*, health benefits are negotiable

*ENVIRONMENT:  *We are a robotics start-up company housed at the Los

*Company Background:*

*What we do – *Perception Robotics develops touch- and vision-based sensing
solutions for modern industrial robots. Our compliant rubber tactile
sensors (“skin”) will give robots a sense of touch, equipping automation
systems with pressure sensing capabilities and providing accurate
position-orientation and force-torque data of contacted or handled objects.
*Our products* – We augment “picking and kitting” robots (robots that move
objects from a disorderly state to an orderly arrangement) with
high-performance adaptive positioning and handling capabilities, at
one-tenth of the cost of current vision systems and enabling the automation
of tasks that currently require human labor.
