Honeybee Robotics is seeking an experienced Software Engineer to help execute advanced robotics projects as part of a multi-disciplinary team from early phase through product delivery with a focus on safety-critical robotic systems and new sensor-based robotics algorithm development. The Software Engineer will work as part of an Integrated Product Team to create technology development roadmaps, ensure projects are completed on schedule and under budget, and interact on a technical level with clients.

Specifically, the Software Engineer will:
• Implement software development, test, and release tools and processes that support the rapid pace of programs
• Contribute to overall robotics software architecture and roadmap decisions
• Develop novel algorithms and technology that can be applied to advanced safety-critical robotic applications
• Evaluating and identifying improvements to system designs with specific focus on robust autonomy
• Interfacing with scientists, engineering managers, product management, and/or program management to drive new product development programs from concept to production
• Create technical documentation (e.g. specifications, flow charts, hazards analysis) for complex systems
• Provide hands-on support to cross-functional product development teams serving markets including space, defense, medical, manufacturing, and other industries.

Basic Qualifications:
• 2-6 years (or 0-6 years w/ MS) post-grad experience developing/delivering/sustaining complex cyber-physical software applications for PCs and embedded targets
• 2+ years working with space, mobile, industrial, or medical robots
