Our client is a well-funded, global, “stealth” startup, developing next generation cloud-based robotics and AI solutions for enterprises. While we can’t tell you too much about what we’re inventing, we can say that we have a team of incredible people from Apple, Samsung, Cisco, and Baidu helping us create truly innovative robotics and AI technologies. And, with a stellar team of leaders, investors and advisors in place, we’re already getting traction with potential customers.
We are growing our Silicon Valley office and we're hiring talented, high-energy, driven professionals who are passionate about building companies. We strongly believe in teamwork and collaboration, and we’re an ideal company for people who really enjoy taking ownership of their work and want to be accountable for their area of business. We genuinely value and respect transparency, curiosity and diversity - if those values are important to you (and if you really like cool robotics technology), you should be talking to us.
Chief Robotics and AI Architect
Chief Robotics and AI Architect will be based in our Santa Clara office, but will work closely with our engineering team in Asia to research, architect, prototype and develop creative cloud-based software for our suite of robotics products.
-Design and improve our clients overall HARI (Human Augmented Robot Intelligence) architecture that includes computer
vision, NLU (natural language understanding) and robot manipulation as well as human operator interaction.
-Design and implement server-side architecture described above for Google, Amazon and/or other cloud-based applications,
create robust high-volume production applications, and develop prototypes quickly.
-Use the latest advances in neural networks and machine learning to guide the engineering team in product development of
computer vision, NLU and robot manipulation.
