Robotics Software Engineer

ABOUT MAIDBOT

Maidbot is a fast-growing robotics company pioneering a revolution in hospitality - the world’s largest industry - by creating robots to handle the dull, dirty and dangerous tasks required of human workers. With rising market demand and Maidbot’s first-mover status, we have already partnered with many of the largest hospitality brands through pilot programs and pre-orders. After completing a successful test with one hospitality company where a dozen of our robots worked alongside hotel staff, we are developing new features and enhancing our current software stack, which ranges from a customer-facing web application to autonomous robotics to state-of-the-art electronics. In our new Austin office you’ll find an army of robots; 3D printers to laser cutters; hypoallergenic dogs; and an endless supplies of hawaiian shaved ice, coffee, and tea!

ABOUT YOU

You are a professional software engineer with robotics experience or a roboticist with extensive software engineering experience. You will work both individually and in a small team to develop software for our autonomous mobile robots. You are able to write software at multiple levels of abstraction: from low-level drivers and behaviors that interface directly with the sensors and actuators, all the way to task-level decision making and high-level control. Most importantly, you are passionate about playing a key role in the development of a revolutionary robot.
