About the Business

We’re a small company with big ideas. Robosynthesis ( http://robosynthesis.com ) is a modular industrial robotics platform that’s reconfigurable in-the-field to perform a wide range of missions using a variety of sensors and tools, different physical configurations, and various terrain-optimised traction systems.Our first-generation platforms have been used at CERN (https://home.cern), National Physical Laboratory ( http://www.npl.co.uk ), and in nuclear cleanup at Chernobyl, and now we’re embarking on the design & development of our next-generation software platform. Based around an open-source software stack, our plan is to give end-users even greater flexibility to augment and enhance the base platform with their own tools, sensors and software, as well as to leverage existing open-source projects and developer communities.

The Role

We’re looking for a passionate hands-on and self-driven software developer with demonstrable open-source robotics experience to drive the development of our next generation software platform. As a leading member of the engineering team, you’ll be involved in the full lifecycle of software development, from architectural design and planning, through to the delivery or well-designed, testable and efficient code.

Responsibilities

  • Propose and validate initial architectural designs
  • Execute full software development life cycle
  • Collaborate on flow charts, layouts and documentation to clarify requirements & solutions

  • Understanding of Networked Systems and protocols (TCP/IP, UDP for ROS)
  • Low level protocols desirable (Ethercat, CAN)
  • Proficiency in Git
  • Experience with Unix systems, specifically for robotics or low-latency applications

Highly desirable

  • Experience using Agile workflow and Jira, Confluence project management tools
  • Experience with products: Maxon motors, Kinova arms, XSense IMUs, Hokuyo Lidars, SLAM libraries like Octomap, icp-slam, openSlam
  • Experience in with robotics projects, simulators (Gazebo), deploying code on hardware
