Verus Research is searching for a Robotics Control Engineer to perform software development for robotics applications, from conception to implementation of control algorithms, to software deployment. Specialization in aerospace applications and in particular guidance, navigation and control implementations is preferred.
The primary role for the Robotics Control Engineer will be to aid in the development and utilization of a mobile robotics laboratory that captures aircraft and spacecraft behaviors. The role will require development of software requirements, software documentation, communication protocols, utilization of one or more robotics middleware languages (such as ROS), establishment of communications between multiple hardware systems, design of guidance, navigation and control algorithms, and implementation of those algorithms on hardware. This is a customer-facing role that requires close collaboration with a variety of stakeholders. Verus Research is committed to solving our customer’s most challenging technical problems and seeks solution-oriented individuals to enhance our team’s ability to thrive in this role. This posting is for work in Albuquerque, NM.
The ideal candidate for the Robotics Control Engineer position will possess strong analytical skills, and a background in some combination of robotics, dynamics and control, autonomous system development, and networked or multi-agent systems.
Success in this demanding position will stem from:
- U.S. Citizenship
- Bachelor’s degree (or higher) in computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, or related field
- 3+ years of experience working on robotics engineering with a solid understanding of robotics concepts such as path planning, control, and communications.
- Strong programming skills with experience using Python, C++, and ROS/ROS 2A
- Ability to communicate technical concepts clearly and effectively and work in a diverse team
- Familiarity with aerospace systems, GNC system design, analysis, modeling, and simulation is advantageous
