Vicarious aims to transform robotics by creating robots with human level performance on real-world manipulation tasks. We are passionate about changing the world with science and software, and we are looking for exceptional people to join us in that mission.
You will join a small, tightly knit collective of engineer-scientists committed to solving these problems. Our focus is on building robotic manipulation systems that are beyond the state of the art by integrating perception, concept learning, reasoning, and motor control as we pursue the long term goal of artificial general intelligence.
As Dev/Ops engineer you will be a critical piece of our DevOps team, providing support for state-of-the-art development of robotic and AI based systems. Continuous delivery, infrastructure as code and scalable solutions will be your bread and butter. This role will involve automating the dynamics of our infrastructure, utilizing AWS to optimize performance, convenience and cost. Your efforts will be rewarded by knowing that you're supporting the bleeding edge in robotic artificial intelligence research and development, every day.
Design and build automated systems to manage our scalable infrastructure on AWS
Deploy the latest software development tools to aid development within the rest of the organization
Create performance benchmarking platforms for our infrastructure and software
Interface with research development teams to find pain points and aid them as needed
Write docker containers
Minimum of bachelor's degree in Computer Science or related field
3+ years working within a devops environment
Very comfortable with Linux - especially Ubuntu
Familiar with configuration management tools (puppet, ansible, salt)
Can write a bash or python script to do just about anything
Experienced with AWS and infrastructure as code (terraform)
Bonus points for experience with ROS
Desired personal qualities
Ability to admit when wrong
Fearlessness working outside your comfort zone
Patience with others
Excellent communication skills and ability to work with people of various backgrounds
Sense of humor
Passionate about robotics and artificial intelligence, and pushing the boundaries on real world robotics applications
