Robot Interface Engineer

Robot Interface Engineer

We’re changing how machines move through unstructured environments – whether on the factory floor or in simulation. Built on next-generation computer processing and state-of-the-art software algorithms, our collision-free motion planning solutions make it possible for robots and other machines to instantly react to their environments and compute how and where to move as their situation is changing. We’re revolutionizing manufacturing by enabling close collaboration between robots and their surroundings,  regardless of the robot brand.

Reporting to the Director of Robotics Engineering, the Robot Interface Engineer will be responsible for developing and refining interfaces with various robot manufacturers. This will include direct and indirect communications with industrial robot manufacturers and technical experts. In this position, you will:

  • Develop software that communicates with different industrial robots and their many interfaces

  • Showcase Realtime's technology in value-add industrial robots and cobots via demo tasks that validate how to get dynamic collision-free paths for various robot manufacturers in real-time over a network interface

  • Collaborate on strategic presentations, application development, troubleshooting and remote/on-site support

  • Assist customers in using Realtime's technology to solve their automation challenges.

The position could be a great match if you have:

  • General understanding of programming in C++

  • Socket pogramming

  • Experience working on software that interfaces with peripheral systems (robot-specific experience is a plus!)

  • Experience working with documented commuication protocols (such as Modbus, Profinet)

  • Strong software engineering habits

  • Desire to work in a fast-paced startup environment

  • BS / MSc in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or a related field
