Senior Software Engineer, Network Appliance Team

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.

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will be part of a team developing network and communication software for our robot control system.

In this position, you will:

  • Maintain and extend our ASCII based TCP/IP command interface.

  • Maintain and extend components that provide high level control for industrial robots.

  • Work in a cross functional team consisting of software developers, test engineers, UX designers and product managers.
