Robotics Software Engineer (Robotics Control) for a robotics company that develops remote controlled robots

Robot Engineer, Drone

About the company
The company is a fast-growing start-up that is working on the development and mass production of robotics products that transmit sight, hearing, and touch. Their mission is to “create a world where every single person at every corner of the planet can benefit from the robotic revolution.” The main objective is to free people from time and space constraints by using remotely operated robots to interact with the remote environment. They have partnered with international companies like NVIDIA to achieve this mission.
The key technologies the company works on are the combination of ultra-low latency screening, hybrid intelligent control, mobile cockpit design, and unique mechanical design. They have recently developed a robot that enables the construction of an extended labor base in the retail industry, with tele-operated robot technology at its core.
Their total funding has been about 4.5 billion yen. They plan to use the funds to expand their product development team and accelerate product development and implementation for their expanding customer base in the retail store and logistics space.
Corporate Culture
This fast-growing start-up has a flat organizational structure that promotes the increased involvement of each and every member of the team. Since the company is rapidly developing marketable avatar robots, control cockpits, and the cloud infrastructure necessary to connect human operations with motion data, the efficiency of the team’s coordination, speed of communication, and decision-making process is very important. The environment is very flexible but they push and motivate their employees to continuously pursue growth and development.
They focus not only on the technical skills of their employees or the candidates that they are looking for, but more importantly they are after individuals who are driven by the same passion and interest they possess in the Robotics industry.
There are many foreign employees and English is the main language used in the workplace.
