Configuration Manager

Carnegie Robotics builds custom robotics systems for government and industry. We also manufacture and sell rugged robotics components that allow other organizations to develop their own robots. We’re small enough to have many of the benefits of working for a startup, but we have a very broad customer base, making us more stable and recession-proof than most organizations our size. We are developing and deploying cutting edge technology in robotics, perception, and machine learning. Many of our development efforts go on to have a real-world impact in robots that clean floors, find land mines, enable the development efforts of other organizations, and much more. This is challenging, exciting work, and we are committed to building the company culture and diverse team that will allow our continued success.

As a Configuration Manager, you will be collaborating with an energetic and motivated, multi-disciplinary team to develop reliable robotic and automation systems for a wide range of real-world commercial products and R&D applications.  The Configuration Manager provides a critical service for coordinating engineering, purchasing, manufacturing, and quality.  The Configuration Manager will work with this cross-discipline team to develop and maintain configuration management (CM) of both developmental and production systems.  This role will focus on ensuring design package completeness, compliance to standards, and overall data integrity and traceability for both hardware and software components.  The Configuration Manager will ensure all engineering drawings are consistent with the department guidelines for format and content.  The Configuration Manager will orchestrate initial engineering release as well as subsequent engineering changes for all design packages.
