Engineering Technician – Electrical

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 an Engineering Technician, you will be responsible for assembling, testing, and troubleshooting various complex electromechanical products. You will work both independently and as part of a team to meet customer requirements and delivery dates. You will be required to problem solve, leverage electrical and mechanical knowledge to address technical challenges, and strive to bring Carnegie Robotics’ product offerings to the highest level of quality, reliability, and value.
