Job Description

Robotics Computer Scientist

Salary range: £40,000 - £99,000
Equity range: 0.08%-0.18%

This startup is developing the first viable automated handwork robot for glasshouse vegetables.

With real challenges to solve, you will be working as part of a team, looking at problems like robotic sensing and path planning, identify the sensible algorithmic route, and implement that - validating against the real robots in the lab, and in the field.

You will make use of advanced deep AI Computer Vision, robotics, autonomous vehicles and Machine Learning technologies, so any experience there is a major advantage. Similarly, work is driven by statistics-based research, so project experience in those areas would help enormously.


  • Assist the research team with integrating new technology / research
  • Develop ROS support / integration for mobile platforms, robotic arms, linear actuators and sensors
  • Work on improving motion planning and decision making capabilities
  • Implement and execute parameter search experiments e.g. to find the - optimum robot mounting position, motion planning settings or gripper finger configuration
  • Lead fixes (and get hands dirty) on critical important and urgent tasks
  • Test, debug and tune the robot software stack

You have

  • Specialisation in Robotic Arms
  • Python skills and good ROS knowledge (and can upskill the team)
  • An active Github profile repo you're proud to share
  • Good understanding of mathematical concepts (linear algebra, matrices, statistics)

Should have

  • Control loop design and optimisation
  • Environmental sensing using LIDAR or 3D cameras
  • Algorithmic understanding of motion/path planning; kinematics
  • Experience with graph theory and search algorithms
  • Worked with or developed low level hardware drivers
  • Working knowledge of deep learning, machine learning and computer vision
