Mechanical 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 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.

You will be responsible for all aspects of the design process, from concept through qualification testing and production in the support of the most advanced robotic systems.  You will work amongst a proven team of technical experts to support programs from concept to production. Engineers must be self-motivated and possess a high level of technical curiosity to elevate the quality and ingenuity of our products.
