Our client is seeking a smart and motivated Research Engineer with demonstrable experience in developing frameworks for natural landmark-based robot localisation. Your role will be to develop and experiment with state of the art algorithms, using sensor vision data to inform. A key part of the role will be to implement the algorithms; hence you must be fluent in modern C++.

Working with a dynamic team of engineers and scientists from the worlds of robotics, mechatronics, AI and computer vision and simulation, this is a superb opportunity to work on exciting green field development. The projects are intellectually stimulating and would suit those candidates with a genuine desire for innovative thought alongside robust development.

You will hold a postgraduate degree in a field such as computer science, robotics, maths or engineering with an undergraduate degree from a highly ranked world-class university. The team in Cambridge liaise with professors and scientists from the foremost institutions.

Alongside this minimum education qualification you will be able to demonstrate the following:-

  • Fluency in modern C++, such as C++14 or C++17, particularly within a large software project
  • Being abreast of the latest research in landmark-based localisation
  • Excellent understanding of probabilistic modelling
  • Experience of the full software development lifecycle

In addition, the following would be of interest:

  • Machine learning for vision
  • ROS

This is a great opportunity to work within a committed team and contribute to the success of the company. The client is based in superb offices, refurbished to provide a modern working environment right in the centre of Cambridge. A full range of great benefits are available alongside a generous salary and the chance to be part of an exciting development.
