Senior Software Engineer, Backend

Company: Roboto AI

Salary: $200 - $4

Posted on: May 31, 2024


Job Description

Imagine a world in which people build websites or products without Splunk,
Mixpanel, or Datadog. That would be hard. Yet, for engineers working on modern
robotics systems (such as self-driving cars or drones), that’s an analogous
reality. These engineers often struggle to make informed decisions about their
robots when things aren’t working correctly, and have to hack together
solutions in-house.

We're building a platform to ingest, search and analyze the vast amounts of
data produced by robots. Our platform ingests data from a wide range of
devices (such as cameras, lidars, radars, batteries, motors, and more), and
then allows engineers to analyze and transform it. It’s AI. It's robotics.
It’s autonomous systems. It’s the future. And it’s going to be huge. Join us!

We’re looking for a senior backend engineer to join our team. In this role,
you will be responsible for designing groundbreaking new services to power the
search and analysis of sensor data.

TYPICAL QUALIFICATIONS

* BS/MS/PhD in Computer Science or equivalent experience
* At least 5 years of full-time experience, ideally ex-growth startup
* Experience building and operating large-scale web services
* Experience managing large SQL / NoSQL database clusters
* Experience with vector search and analytics technologies
* Experience with Python (required) and C++, Go or Rust (a plus)
* Experience with AWS, Azure or Google Cloud
* Experience with Docker, Kubernetes or similar technologies
* (Bonus) Experience building developer tools or machine learning products
* (Bonus) Experience with multi-modal robotics data formats (e.g. ROS, PX4)

ABOUT US

We are a small but mighty (and growing) group with a mission to help the
industry build better robots and bring them to market faster. Our founding
team is made up of experts in robotics, machine learning, computer vision and
more. In past lives—we were founding engineers on the Amazon Prime Air team,
led autonomy and simulation initiatives at Amazon Robotics, and implemented
machine learning solutions from AWS into numerous Fortune 500 companies. We
also count the Paul Allen Institute for AI as a co-founder, one of the world’s
leading A.I. research institutions.

WHY JOIN

BCG forecasts that the global robotics market will climb from $25 billion in
2021 to upwards of $260 billion by 2030. McKinsey forecasts that the global
shared autonomous-driving market alone will be roughly $1.6 trillion by 2030.
By any measure—the robotics industry is going to be huge—with the majority of
that growth coming in the next 5-10 years. But what's clear is that the
industry doesn’t have the tools to facilitate that growth.

As a seed-funded startup, we also have several unique benefits that you can’t
really get anywhere else:

* Personal impact — The opportunity to build something from the ground up and define a new product.
* Founding title — You will be one of our first hires. For the rest of our days, no matter how many thousands of people join after you, you will always have that honor and distinction.
* Early stage equity — Early stage risk comes with early stage equity for you. And none of us would be here if we didn’t think that our company will create tremendous value over time.
* Access to unique learning opportunities — With the Allen Institute for AI (AI2) as a co-founder, our team gets access to numerous talks by leading AI researchers/paper authors, access to knowledge sharing amongst the community of hundreds of engineers that work for AI2 companies, and much more.

* Visa support, if needed

Roboto AI focuses on Robotics, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence,
Software, and Computer Vision. Their company has offices in Seattle. They have
a small team that's between 1-10 employees. To date, Roboto AI has raised
$4.8M of funding; their latest round was closed on April 2023.
