Validation Engineer

Validation 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.

As an Validation Engineer at Realtime Robotics, you will be responsible for development of internal infrastructure designed to understand whether targeted customer challenges can be effectively solved with the delivered product. The role would represent the customer's point of view by testing through design, creation, and deployment of representative scenarios while communicating related learnings. Responsibilities for this role scale the breadth of the Realtime product suite and include all phases of its use. This role involves no immediate direct customer support, but may evolve into a customer facing role. In this position, you will:

  • Contribute to assessment of product usability and functionality, focusing on:

    • Robotic workcell definition

    • Task definition

    • Deployment modification/iteration when in use

  • Design and create customer-representative deployment environments and associated tasks.

  • Act as internal first customer, providing guiding feedback to product design and implementation.

  • Explore newly implemented features through implementation, task iteration and (re)design.

  • Be ready to advocate on behalf of customers within Realtime and ensure their technical needs and requests are understood throughout Realtime Robotics.

Required qualifications:

  • A familiarity with industrial manufacturing workcell deployment, and knowledge of common workcell metrics (i.e. TAKT time, cycle time, etc).

  • Experience and familiarity with FMEA within the scope of an industrial robotics deployment.

  • Strong knowledge deploying integrated robotic workcells, including setup and configuration of industrial robots, conveyors, sensors, PLCs, HMIs, etc.

  • Experience deploying Perception / Computer Vision systems.

  • Comfort working within a customer mentality, and understanding customer requirements.

  • Comfort in an in-office setting, working with real hardware.

  • Desire to work in a fast-paced startup environment.


  • Experience adhering to industrial deployment regulations in safety critical environments, and/or familiarity with ISO/TS 15066, ISO 13849, ISO 10218.
