This startup is developing the first viable automated handwork robot for glasshouse vegetables - revenue opportunity $13.2B replacing seasonal migrant labour like-for-like, firstly the $950M spent picking main tomato varieties - using their own AI computer vision platform, initially as lead in a $1.6M consortium. The CEO worked at Google for 5 years and studied at Stanford.
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. It's a great opportunity to learn more about cutting-edge machine learning and computer vision too.
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.
As employee #16, this is an exceptional chance to join at the start and help define the company culture. You'll need to be technically credible - and nothing says credibility like shipped code.
Think you can real-time fuse three different cameras in your lunch break? Let's talk.
- Assist the research team with integrating new technology / research into our stack - improve software quality whilst preserving research velocity
- Develop ROS support / integration for mobile platforms, robotic arms, linear actuators and sensors
- Work on improving our 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
- Assess software viability, complexity and timescales
- Lead fixes (and get hands dirty) on critical important and urgent tasks
- Test, debug and tune the robot software stack
- BSc. degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Physics, Mathematics, mathematical engineering or undeniably equivalent practical experience
- Relevant MSc or PhD [preferred]
- Python skills and good ROS knowledge (and can upskill the team)
- Strong motivational skills, creative technical thinking and clear communication
- An active Github profile or code repo you're proud to share
- Good understanding of mathematical concepts (linear algebra, matrices, statistics)
- Control loop design and optimisation
- 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
You'll need to be willing to work from their funky office in London, UK.
