Robot Software Engineer

Develop and co-own large part of the robot code base

Lobster Robotics is a high-tech startup developing cutting-edge autonomous underwater vehicles for seabed exploration and monitoring. The photographs and other data that we collect lets our clients understand what is there and allow them to take action. We are currently seeking a full-time software design engineer to join our team.

As a software engineer at Lobster Robotics you will be working on our robotics software stack, on anything from sensor communication to robot control to mission execution. You will be responsible for designing, developing, and testing such components using Python, CPP, and Rust. You will gain hands-on experience developing robust and performance software for autonomous robots operating in remote and hostile environments. As part of the development cycle, extensive field testing is often required so at times you will join the offshore operations to evaluate your work in action in the open ocean.
