Robotics Software Engineer – Cognitive Robotics @ Eurecat


The Robotics and Automation Unit of Eurecat Technology Center (Barcelona) is looking for a highly motivated Robotics Software Engineer with special interest in applied R&D in Cognitive Robotics.
We need candidates with good level of software development for robotics solutions (including ROS2/ROS) and a particular interest in specializing and developing a career in Cognitive Robotics (Behavior Orchestration / Behavior Tree, Planning, Reasoning, Learning, AI) and Human Robot Interaction.

Our group has almost a trajectory of 20 years and it is specialized in applied research and development on Service and Industrial Robotics. Our objective is to increase the level of robot autonomy and intelligence to enable more complex robotics behaviours. Our projects cover a wide range of robotics topics and sectors such as assistive and healthcare robotics , advanced flexible manufacturing, field robotics (agriculture and others), logistics, inspection, and maintenance, etc. Check out our research lines and projects website:

We are a team of energetic young people passionate about robotics. Come join us!

The main responsibilities will focus on the scientific contribution and technological developments including:

  • Research and development of projects.
  • Software design, development, validation, and maintenance of good quality (product-oriented) applied research.
  • Participate in the definition and development of new concepts and robotic ideas.
  • Sporadic support/supervision to robot integration and field trials.
  • Participate in scientific publications.
  • Support project management to ensure proper project execution.
  • Establish and maintain contact with clients and partners in consortiums.


Required Skills

  • MSc or equivalent experience in Robotics, AI, Computer Vision, or related discipline.
