Electrical Engineer

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 real-world impact in robots that find land mines, clean floors, 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 an Electrical Engineer, you will join a multidisciplinary team of engineers who are tackling today’s most challenging problems in automation. Spanning multiple industries including defense, materials management, energy, agriculture, and sanitation, Carnegie Robotics applies its expertise in vision systems and robotics to solve problems faced by various market sectors. You will be designing the electronics that drive rugged, full robotic systems.
