Red Oak Technology is seeking a Software Engineering Lead - AV Motion Planning for our client located in Golden, Colorado. This is a permanent position.
We’re searching for a talented software engineering lead & manager who has developed and implemented planning software more or less from scratch for safety-critical, ground robotics applications as a technical lead.
You'll be the engineering lead for a category-defining motion planning capability that incorporates physics/kinematics, path planning, and trajectory optimization for an autonomous tractor-trailer combination capable of forward and reverse movement, including articulated backing, hitching/unhitching, and docking/undocking at warehouse loading docks. This subsystem will enable unprecedented functionality using durable, tried-and-true, classical motion planning techniques.
The Software Engineering Lead - AV Motion Planning will report to the Vice President of Software Engineering. This role is mission-critical for helping deliver a safety-critical system for industrial automation. The opportunity offers a very talented software engineer the chance to help develop a market-defining enterprise product that combines autonomous vehicle technology with a software-as-a-service (SaaS) business model.
The ideal candidate will embrace our goal to drive zero-emission, self-driving vehicle adoption, and help us realize our potential to define, build, and lead a new, category of robotic automation for the enterprise.
