Open Position: EMBEDDED SYSTEMS ENGINEER

  • Have you ever wanted to work with swarms of robots?
  • Do you like deploying robots in real-world environments (not just in the lab)?
  • Do you want to help the robots of the future cooperate?
  • Are you a natural at figuring out how to put things together and make them work?
  • Do you solve problems with a keyboard in one hand and a soldering iron in the other?
  • Do you want a career where you are always learning new things?

At Apium we are all about Swarm Robotics. We are actively developing enabling technologies for multi-vehicle management, and then packaging our solutions so they can be adapted to a variety of robotic platforms. We started in the ocean and are expanding to aerial swarming. We live at the beginning of the Age of Autonomy, and the need and opportunities for inter-vehicle cooperation are increasing. We need your help to create the solutions for the future.
