5D Robotics is coming to Greater Boston!


We recently opened an algorithms group on Mass. Ave in Cambridge and are looking to hire some local talent. The work will cover a wide range of topics and fields, so candidates need to be comfortable picking up new skills. Robotics is still young, so an ideal candidate would be broadly read to understand how similar problems are being attacked in more mature fields.


All work for the immediate future will be in simulation, so candidates will need to become very comfortable operating in rviz and Gazebo. As time goes on, we will acquire test space and begin shipping robots in from our Carlsbad office.
