Dear Colleagues,

IT+Robotics Srl, a Spin-off company of the University of Padua (ITALY), is hiring a

  - Project leader with a PhD in Robotics/Computer science/Computer Engineering  

to work on coverage planning software solutions for Industrial Automation

 Application Deadline: June 30, 2017


IT+Robotics known for its strong expertise in  the market of robotic visual inspection systems, developed complete software solutions such as WorkCell Simulator and WCS Coverage Planner and works on European projects focused on quality inspection.

In the 2016, IT+Robotics applied successfully to INNOSUP 2016 SME INNOVATION ASSOCIATE call (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__ec.europa.eu_easme_en_h2020-2Dsme-2Dinnovation-2Dassociate&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=r3DPhjShEik9nsTGO8Lvq52lYfIBv93aFmYHwqQKzxc&s=lKZ19cbKFHTzKGKR04lTOO8qBzPE2GtN_7I2C3y6B2U&e= ).

The project is starting on September 1st, 2017 (www.it-robotics.it/careers/)

The successful candidate will bring his knowledge inside the aforementioned software products developing a framework for inspection workcells. The objective is to create software solutions able to setup, simulate and deploy the machine code for robotics cells with image sensors (2D and stereo cameras, laser triangulation, structured light vision systems) for inspection tasks.


PhD in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or Robotics

Excellent academic track record with publications

Very good English skills, written and spoken

Strong  background in motion planning and task planning.

Strong proficiency with C/C++ programming, with recent C and C++ coding experience

Strong Object-Oriented design skills.

Strong independence, i.e. capable of designing, implementing and supporting new features in the product with minimal supervision.

Excellent teamwork and interpersonal skills.

The successful candidate will be working with our friendly team composed by PhDs and senior engineers in order to face and solve the following key challenge: full coverage of the part to be inspected has to be ensured while avoiding collisions. Manual or semi-automatic motion planning for the robot proved to be excessively difficult and time-consuming.

Being a part of a spin-off involved in a variety of European projects, challenging industrial projects and with everyday contacts with the Intelligent Autonomous System Lab of the University of Padua (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__robotics.dei.unipd.it&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=r3DPhjShEik9nsTGO8Lvq52lYfIBv93aFmYHwqQKzxc&s=ldLA4X5PAt-qOtcIEvr4wnWjI9oTEdApg9mukq95x7g&e=  <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__robotics.dei.unipd.it_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=r3DPhjShEik9nsTGO8Lvq52lYfIBv93aFmYHwqQKzxc&s=lMHEzAgdDUvg6-wrYUGYVNO8jlTip_nEr_O-qMkliUM&e= >) will represent for the candidate a stimulating environment to his/her professional growth.

The salary will be very competitive. The net annual amount is 45,000.00 € . This is a full-time job for one year (renewable).

The candidate will work in Padua, a city which blends historical tradition and culture with burgeoning business and service industries.
