About the Job

We require high-fidelity dynamic models, robust control, and reliable state estimation. We're constantly building robots, but want to bring their performance to the next level. We need an Autonomy Engineer to improve our current vehicle models & controllers and develop brand new ones for the robots we've got on the drawing board. Can you get behind that?


You will stay on top of recent developments in the control and modeling of self-driving robots. This includes evaluating such developments to determine if they can improve the performance of our standard model lines and custom products. Additionally, you will improve our existing models by spending warm summer days driving robots around outside (cold winters too; this is Canada after all). Finally, you will develop theoretical models of prototypes to assist the hardware design team in the design process.

Your primary responsibilities will be:

  • Controls development for self-driving robots
  • State estimator development for same
  • Software development as necessary
  • Sensor sourcing & integration

Additional tasks may include:

  • Developing & carrying out system test plans
  • Mentoring and assisting with supervision of interns
  • Explaining our newest shiny toys to the sales & marketing team

You want to be surrounded by people like you; creative, fun-loving, and passionate about their work. You are motivated by making an impact on your workplace and you thrive on challenging and rewarding problems. Oh, and you have some form of higher education with the common sense to back it up.

Required Technical Skills:

  • Graduate degree in engineering or a related field, with applicable background
  • Practical knowledge of state estimation, control, mapping, modeling, and estimation techniques
  • Strong software development skills (C, C++, Python preferred)
  • Proficiency with Linux
  • Hands-on experience with autonomous systems

Desired Soft Skills:

  • Ability to efficiently and clearly communicate ideas, including to those who may have a limited theoretical background in the area
  • Ability to reliably plan and estimate development time requirements
  • Comfortable with abrupt changes to project deadlines, job responsibilities and the local gravity field

Bonus points for:

  • ROS, MATLAB, LabVIEW experience
  • Understanding of sensors and their error models, particularly laser rangefinders, GPS systems, and vision systems
  • Experience with the control of skid-steer and differential drive ground vehicles
  • Ability to perform general hands-on troubleshooting of electromechanical systems
  • Familiarity with SLAM, nonholonomic path planning, multi-vehicle coordination
  • Experience with the dynamics of small surface vessels
  • Familiarity with the control of manipulator arms
