Near Earth Autonomy is looking for Robotic Systems Engineers to implement and deploy solutions for aerial mobility and inspection applications. This is primarily a software-oriented position, including frequent communication with algorithm designers and software engineers. You will provide input to electrical and mechanical engineers and understand their resulting designs; once the hardware is produced, work will typically be with the software portion of the system.
This is a hands-on role. You are expected to attend flight tests; most of these are local to the Pittsburgh area, while travel outside the area will occasionally be required. You are expected to work closely with the system and be comfortable analyzing data. You will be a part of the team building the system and will make decisions affecting engineers working on modules within the system. As a system designer, you will advise the team regarding modules to be produced by other engineers. Direct tasking of other engineers will depend on your seniority and the size of the team.
Senior and junior positions are available.
Responsibilities and Duties
In this role, you will be called upon to develop a variety of aspects of the system, with duties such as:
Qualifications and Skills
At Near Earth Autonomy, we are building the future of flight by creating autonomy systems that enable aerial vehicles to fly themselves safely and efficiently. When you join our company, you will get a spot on a team with the best minds in robotics and aerospace working to solve some of the hardest problems in the industry. You will write algorithms to keep aircraft safe by detecting wires hundreds of feet away, implement programs that map the world by processing hundreds of thousands of lidar data points per second, design sensor enclosures that can withstand the vibrations of helicopter blades spinning at 400 rpm, and participate in flight tests to watch your technology in action. You will collaborate with mentors and teammates who are happy to share their expertise and help you grow professionally.
Here, you will find the reputation of a well-established company combined with the meritocratic structure, dynamic culture, and personal ownership of a start-up. You will be able to discuss the company strategy with our CEO over tacos, talk shop with our CTO on a walk through the 640-acre park next to our office, share your cooking skills with your colleagues in the annual chili cook-off, and wear the company uniform playing on our soccer and rowing teams.
We are a community of valued individuals who understand that life happens outside of the office. We are flexible and accommodating to our staff’s needs, particularly when unexpected situations arise such as needing to take care of home life and family. Our compensation package includes a salary that enables a comfortable life, stock options that reward employees for long-term loyalty, a 401k retirement plan, and medical, dental, and vision benefits.
We are looking for women and men who want to revolutionize aerial delivery, transport, and inspection. If you are up for the challenge, please submit your application, come on board, and let your passion take flight.
