Job Description

Agility Robotics is a pioneer. Our robot, Digit, is the first to be sold into workplaces across the globe. Our team is differentiated by its expertise in imagining, engineering, and delivering robots with advanced mobility, dexterity, intelligence, and efficiency -- robots specifically designed to work alongside people, in spaces built for people. Every day, we break through engineering challenges and invent new solutions and capabilities that will one day make robots commonplace and approachable. This work is our passion and our responsibility: our mission is to make businesses more productive and people’s lives more fulfilling.

About The Role

Our software team is growing rapidly and we are looking for talented engineers to join our small, agile, world-class team. In this role you will drive efforts to develop and maintain an efficient and reliable onboard perception system for our current and next generation robots. You will be responsible for ensuring that sensors “just work” for the rest of the software stack. You’ll make sure the robot is designed with the right sensors for the job, that these sensors are properly calibrated, and that the pipeline that streams sensor data into other modules of our onboard system is optimized for performance and usability.

About The Work

  • Drive efforts to develop and maintain an efficient and reliable onboard sensing system for our current and next generation products, going from raw data generated by a variety of sensor modalities to consumable data for perception algorithms
  • Write performant, well-tested, maintainable, and well documented C++ software to integrate sensors into the perception system
  • Implement automated testing to ensure the robustness of both the sensor hardware and software, ensuring that sensors work and handle errors gracefully no matter what environment the robot encounters
  • Evaluate a variety of cutting-edge sensors to determine the optimal sensing system for our next-generation robots
  • Work with cross-functional teams to communicate perception system requirements, evaluate trade-offs in sensing technologies, and optimize the sensing system architecture to meet those requirements
  • Develop algorithms for onboard sensor fault and anomaly detection
  • Develop accurate and repeatable sensor calibration routines
  • Test and deploy code on a state-of-the-art humanoid robot

About You

  • BS, MS, or Ph.D. in computer science, electrical engineering, or related field or have equivalent industry experience
  • Fluent in C++ (C++ 17 and up preferred)
  • Expert in system design, data structures, multi-threading, memory management, data structures, object-oriented programming, and common design patterns
  • Experience working with a variety of sensors (monocular cameras, stereo cameras, lidar, ect)
  • Ability to introspect, analyze, and debug large, complicated software systems
  • Experience implementing and deploying perception processing pipelines 
  • Experience with intrinsic and extrinsic sensor calibration
  • Love working on software that interacts with real world devices


Bonus Points

  • Experience working with Intel Realsense cameras
  • Experience with high-speed data protocols
  • Experience with GPU architectures and CUDA programing
  • Experience with Docker



  • Competitive compensation package
  • Industry leading employer-matched retirement plan
  • High-quality health, dental and vision insurance - 100% Employer paid for single coverage 
  • 100% Company paid Short and Long-term disability insurance
  • 100% Company paid Life Insurance
  • Five weeks of paid time off (3 discretionary weeks and 2 company-wide shutdowns)
  • Paid sick leave
  • Paid parental leave
  • A culture that encourages flexible work schedules
  • A culture that embraces individuality and authenticity
  • Relocation assistance provided when necessary
