Job Description

Software Engineer, Motion Planning and Kinematics- Robotics
Software Engineering
Mountain View, CA
X is Alphabet’s moonshot factory. We are a diverse group of inventors and entrepreneurs who build and launch technologies that aim to improve the lives of millions, even billions, of people. Our goal: 10x impact on the world’s most intractable problems, not just 10% improvement. We approach projects that have the aspiration and riskiness of research with the speed and ambition of a startup.


We are a team of roboticists, researchers, engineers and entrepreneurs who are passionate about changing the world for the better through the use of robotic solutions. We believe that improving the access and usability of robots can help people and businesses grow in previously unattainable ways. We’re aiming to redefine what robotics can and should be able to do for people, whether it’s at work, at home or in their communities.


As a robotics engineer, you will work closely with other software engineers, roboticists, designers and control engineers to develop systems that allow robots to move in their environment. You will work with new technologies as you find creative solutions to new challenging problems around hardware and software.

How you will make 10x impact:

Develop robot motions by leveraging or building tools for path planning, trajectory generation and multi-robot coordination.
Implement state of the art algorithms and libraries for hard real time context in C++.
Design and implement robust algorithms to drive robots in manufacturing settings.
Distil recent robotics research publications for target problems and implement promising solutions.
What you should have:

Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Robotics or equivalent practical experience.
2 years of experience in one or more of: robotics (e.g. kinematics, controls, and/or motion planning), motion planning, scheduling, optimization.
Experience programming in C++.
It’d be great if you also had these: :

Master’s degree or PhD in Robotics, Computer Science or a similar technical field.
Experience with the design and implementation of large, complex software systems.
4 years of experience in one of the specialities listed above.
At X, we don't just accept difference - we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of our employees, our products and our community. We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is an affirmative action employer. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status. We also consider qualified applicants regardless of criminal histories, consistent with legal requirements.
