Requirements
  • M.S. or Ph.D. in an engineering-related field
  • Strong background in inventing and deploying innovative perception algorithms to robotic systems in real-world environments
  • Experience in areas such as object detection, classification, segmentation, and tracking, sensor fusion, state estimation, local 3D mapping and reconstruction, person detection, and human pose estimation
  • Experience in developing and training deep nets and applying deep learning to perception problems
  • Strong software engineering skills, preferably in both Python and C++, and analysis and debugging of robotic perception algorithms
  • Strong interpersonal skills, and a willingness to learn from others and contribute back to the robotics community with publications or open-source code
  • Passionate about seeing robotics have an impact
Responsibilities
  • Develop, integrate, and deploy algorithms linking perception to autonomous robot actions, including manipulation, navigation, and human-robot interaction
  • Invent and deploy innovative solutions at the intersection of machine learning, computer vision, multi-sensor perception, and simulation for understanding human environments and humans, in and around homes
  • Invent novel ways to generate, build, label, and use large, possibly distributed datasets, using self-supervision, active learning, simulation, synthetic rendering, and real-world adaptation
  • Be part of a team that fields systems, performs failure analysis, and iterates on improving performance and capabilities
  • Follow software engineering practices that produce maintainable code, including automated testing, continuous integration, code style conformity, and code review
