Robotics Engineer, Software

Lincoln, Nebraska   |   Full Time

Do you enjoy developing novel solutions to complex problems? Are you a self-starter who likes to collaborate with team members across disciplines? Do you have an adventurous spirit eager to join an early-stage start-up?

Marble, a technology company founded to accelerate food system technologies for people and the planet, is seeking a full-time Robotics Engineer, Software who is not afraid of a challenge, and is passionate about building technology solutions that transform an industry.  As a part of the Marble team, you'll help develop the next generation of tools and robotics for meat processing, bringing resilience to the food supply chain.

A Day in the Life of a Robotics Engineer, Software at Marble:

Our Robotics R&D team is an innovative, cross-disciplinary, and collaborative group of passionate engineers with a wide range of skill sets.  We create next-generation mechatronic systems powered by advanced computer vision, modern control theory, and cutting-edge mechanical design.

As a Robotics Engineer, Software on the Marble team, you’ll be responsible for developing perception, planning, and learning algorithms to generate and use rich data to control robotics systems.  You’ll need to be able to hack with existing, off-the-shelf solutions and commercially available robotics platforms and continuously integrate and evaluate your work on real hardware.  Existing papers, patents, and other industry publications will be referenced often, and you’ll need to be comfortable reading and re-implementing that work.   

Your insight and expertise will be crucial to the development of the products we build and will influence decisions on architecture.  You'll collaborate with experts in engineering, robotics, software development, agribusiness, and meat science as you apply the latest advancements in robotics to pressing issues in meat processing. You’ll also frequently work with customers and external stakeholders as part of our customer-focused approach to development.  You can expect to talk to customers about their challenges and partner with them to test our solutions.
