ROS Localization and Mapping Engineer

Advanced Robotics Group is looking for select individuals who are seriously good at what they do and want to join a small elite team defying conventional wisdom regarding what is possible with robotics.


As a Localization and Mapping Engineer, you will be leading the enablement of autonomous operations for a high-performance, non-consumer platform performing a mix of tasks in an exceptionally demanding environment. You will:

  • Use most everything you currently know about world-class autonomous operations and then some to make it happen,
  • Think broadly and shun superficial fixes,
  • Supplement and integrate an array of open source elements with proprietary approaches, and
  • Direct simulations and physical tests to ensure exceptional robustness and reliability for your solutions

Must haves:

  • Deep knowledge of localization and mapping techniques
  • Extensive practical robotics experience
  • Excellent general structured problem-solving and software architecture skills
  • Demonstrated strong software engineering and design fundamentals
  • Fluency in C/C++
  • Experience with path planning and navigation
  • Experience in ROS and simulation environments
  • Experience developing in a Linux environment
  • Experience with system integration and system level design
  • Ability to incorporate new best-in-class technologies quickly and reliably
  • Passion for robotics and a deep desire to see your efforts come to life
  • Personal discipline to maintain strict confidentiality instinctively
  • Desire to make a multi-year commitment
  • MS/PhD in Computer Science, Robotics, or a related field or BS with 5+ years applicable industry experience

Nice to haves:

  • Experience with autonomous robots
  • Experience with embedded and real-time systems

Location: Main development center in Houston, Texas
Compensation: Very competitive

About Advanced Robotics Group, LLC:

We are a small, driven team of technology experts with decades of robotics experience between us. We’re refining and developing non-consumer robots to execute multiple tasks with fully autonomous operations in demanding environments, and we are doing this by applying, extending and connecting open-sourced technologies with our own proprietary approaches for new capabilities. We’ve modularized our technologies, enabling our solutions to stay in the lead, and are using on-site, full-scale physical testing for quick, high-quality, real-world development feedback.

Due to the confidential nature of our activities, we aren’t able to share specifics with you now, but know that these robotics solutions will have a significant impact on both safety and the environment, thus making the world just a little bit better.

Our hands are on the future. Are you ready to join us?
