Mechatronics Engineer - Field Robotics



n       Attractive Remuneration Package

n       Key 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.

Listed by startup88  in the "19 Hot Australian Startups to watch in
2015", our client (SwarmFarm Robotics) was established in 2009 and
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 join the team in the development of
autonomous ground robot systems.


Reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer, in this role you
will: collaborate with colleagues, subject matter experts and end users
to identify and address key issues; refine/redevelop existing software
and or control systems through to implementation onto field prototypes;
perform field testing and trials and conduct 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; understanding of the systems development lifecycle, REST
design and implementation 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. As are GUI design and web
development skills and experience with C# and Unity 3D engine. 


An understanding of machine vision, image processing and machine
learning will be a 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 ME10515, by
Monday, 11 May 2015 to applications at nexusexecutive.com.au
