Are you a kick ass robotics engineer/designer/scientist? Do you dream about
a future with robots and augmented reality? Did you build your first robot
out of crib parts when you were 1 year old***?If you had a billion dollars
would you immediately spend it all building an army of flying robots to do
your bidding? As long as you have dreamed this big and are willing to dream
bigger, you may be a good fit.

This job will be ridiculously hard. We need a Lead Robotics Engineer that
has the potential to be among the best in the world to integrate our team
of computer vision software and hardware scientists to bridge the gap
between robotics and augmented reality.

Seriously, if you want an easy job this is not the job you're looking for,
move along ... move along.

You will have to work with a lot of specialists across disciplines, the
hours are long and the risks are high. There is always a chance of failure,
but if we are successful and achieve our goal, we will change the world in
a way that you can barely imagine.

What if people could learn anything, wherever they are? What if there was a
device that could help anyone to become an expert at anything? That is the
world we want to live in, and that is what we are making.

Now add robots; make that flying robots. Big robots, little robots, the
really, really small ones too, in swarms, lots of those! We want people to
become experts at anything, and we want robots to help them do it!

You must be passionate about robotics, human machine interfaces, and
empowering people with knowledge. The Lead Robotics Engineer will be part
of a team that will help us enable a world where robots that are ready to
fly, drive, and walk without the leash of a remote control.

We expect you to be really, really good at what you do.

We expect that you do all things robot including use case definition,
hardware, software, automatic control & stability and flight operations,

We expect that you bring an intense desire to create novel sensing
platforms… we will bring the necessary materials. Genius co-workers will be

We expect you to be a nice person; we don't really get along with people
who aren't nice, its pretty much our thing. If that is inconvenient for
you, we're sorry ... but it's just not going to work out.

Professional experience with UAVs is a must. Grueling hours negotiable,
changing history guaranteed.

*Minimum Requirements*:

Master or PhD Degree in Robotics, Computer Science, Mechanical or
Electrical Engineering*****.

5+ years of professional / industry experience.

At least 1 year of experience with UAVs, including navigation.

Experience leading a team of engineers to develop creative solutions within
the field of Robotics.

Experience with control systems.

*** Of course that's not possible... unless it is, then call us right away!

**** See the list in the 5th paragraph above referencing large, small, and
really, really small robot types for more details (or 6th paragraph ... if
you want to count the dangling sentence in the middle as a paragraph).

***** Alternately a portfolio of work that includes a fully functional
robot made of crib parts that has been in service for a number of years
that is approximately equal to your age - 1 year.
