Savioke is looking to hire a Senior Robotics Software Engineer with a
strong background in AI planning and robotics to join the robotic
applications team.

The ideal candidate has demonstrated two things:

- The ability to formulate and implement novel ideas via peer-reviewed
publications in the AI or robotics community, but also

- The personal drive and ability to build real-world products using web
technologies, demonstrated via relevant work experience.

While being primarily focused on software development and leadership, the
role also has a significant applied-science component. This includes
applying state-of-the-art research from the above fields to the problem of
controlling a mobile robot in human environments, but also the opportunity
to push the envelope and developing new techniques in these fields.
