Boston Dynamics is a world leader in mobile robots, tackling some of the toughest robotics challenges. We combine the principles of dynamic control and balance with sophisticated mechanical designs, cutting-edge electronics, and next-generation software for high-performance robots equipped with perception, navigation, and intelligence. Boston Dynamics has an extraordinary and fast-growing technical team of engineers and scientists who seamlessly combine advanced analytical thinking with bold engineering.

Boston Dynamics is seeking a Senior Control Systems Engineer to help design and code real time control systems for our logistics robotic applications. This person will work with other software/controls engineers to create high rate optimal feedback controllers, state estimators, and communications channels. We believe that if it doesn’t work on a robot, it doesn’t work - so get ready to do lots of iterative hardware testing to iron out the kinks. If you are looking to work amongst colleagues who are collaborative, mission-driven, values-focused, and looking to have a positive impact on the world of robotics, come and join us!

Day to day activities:
  • Design and implement controls algorithms in modern C++ focused specifically on high rate feedback systems
  • Test and debug your designs on awesome robots
  • Create highly reliable, maintainable, and testable codebases
  • Interface with multi-disciplinary teams to execute design objectives
Desired skills:
  • MS with 3+ years of experience or PhD in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, or related field
  • Expertise in control systems, state estimation, multibody dynamics, or optimization
  • Proficiency in designing and implementing scalable software through the use of design patterns in modern C++
Bonus skills:
  • 4+ years developing in a professional and product driven environment
  • Experience shipping new product to a demanding customer base
  • Experience with hardware (sensor, actuator) integration, especially on robotic systems
  • Knowledge of systems programming, e.g. memory management, threading, and interprocess communication techniques
We are interested in every qualified candidate who is eligible to work in the United States. However, we are not able to sponsor visas for this position.

Boston Dynamics will never ask you to divulge your personal financial or account information as part of its recruiting process.
