Full-time Position • Redwood City, CAApply Now
Mayfield Robotics is the startup behind Kuri, the adorable home robot that won a pile of awards at CES 2017 and that also pinkie-swears not to take over the world and eradicate humanity. We're growing and looking for people to come help us make Kuri even more adorable and awesome.
We operate with all the best aspects of being a startup: independence, speed, transparency, teamwork, and a well-stocked kitchen. We also have the focus and discipline of a company that knows exactly where it’s going, without the distraction of fundraising (we’re wholly owned by a much larger company that loves what we’re doing, thinks long term, and mostly leaves us alone). We were founded in February of 2015, and we’re based in sunny Redwood City, California - the epicenter of both Silicon Valley and the future of robotics.
We are on well on our way, and preparing to ship our robot Kuri. However, there are still some interesting challenges for you to work on. We are looking for a Sr. Robotics Software Engineer to help Kuri find her place in homes. This engineer will be responsible for bringing Kuri’s personality to life and helping her understand her surroundings as she discovers and interacts with the world. If you’re looking for a position helping ship a consumer robot that will interact with people in their homes, this job is for you
Some of the exciting challenges we are tackling (and which you may be called upon to help with) include: generating lots of adorable, autonomous behaviors to fill out Kuri’s personality, robustifying our SLAM system to deal with the crazy variations of consumer homes and naive users, developing techniques for things like lifelong mapping and global localization, and developing, training, testing, and optimizing (especially with GPUs) our vision algorithms for pet, person, and object detection.
But never fear - you won’t be on your own - we have assembled an awesome software team (17 and growing!) to pull together to ship our robots to their new homes. If you’re looking to join a team that’s richly talented, charmingly diverse, sometimes goofy, and 100% passionate about all things robots, you’re looking in the right place.
