Mountain View, CA (HQ)
We believe there are many problems in the world in which robotics could play a significant role in making it easier, faster and safer for people to get things done. We are a robotics team at X that brings together people with varied skill sets, all kinds of backgrounds, and from all over the world. Our team is investigating how machine learning can help us teach robots new skills so that one day they can become useful in our unstructured world. Creating robots that can learn in different ways involves navigating some of the hardest challenges in robotics today. It’s an ambiguous and iterative process, so we’ve worked hard to create a team environment where collaboration and creativity can flourish, and where people always feel comfortable bringing their unique perspectives and expertise to the table.
As a Perception Engineer, you will design and evolve our perception hardware which includes color, NIR imaging and depth sensing. You will also work with third-party suppliers and other teams within X to create a high quality perception hardware in imaging and sensing.
About X, the moonshot factory
X creates radical new technologies to solve some of the world’s biggest problems. We develop uncomfortably ambitious, potentially world-changing new ideas such as self-driving cars, balloon-powered Internet and smart contact lenses. We’re a team of makers, entrepreneurs, engineers, designers and scientists with deep technical expertise who love the challenge of the seemingly impossible. We believe that a culture of psychological safety creates the foundation of trust and respect necessary to build moonshots. X was formerly known as Google[x] and is part of Alphabet.
