Robot Technician/Assembler

Our Mission
Our mission is to solve the most important and fundamental challenges in AI and Robotics to enable future generations of intelligent machines that will help us all live better lives.

The AI Institute is building an environment that fosters the kind of blue-sky thinking found in academic labs and quickly drives it to practice through development discipline and resources more common to top-tier industry teams.
What you will be doing
  • As a robot technician, you will be joining the hardware team implementing solutions across the multiple research programs at the AI Institute. You will be working day-to-day with an interdisciplinary team to build safe, functional hardware solutions in the development of experimental robots. In addition, you will help produce internal documentation, and foster successful collaboration with external contract manufacturing partners. You will be supported by a team of engineers with a breadth of robotics experience allowing you to apply your skills to make the hardware easier to build, support, and maintain.
  • As an individual contributor, your responsibilities will include
  • Assembly of robotic subsystems and modules, prototype printed circuit boards (PCBs), and complex cable harnesses
  • Rework of surface mount and through hole components, including small components under a microscope, large components requiring preheat, and rework wire
  • Debugging and triage of failures during initial bring-up and testing of robotic prototypes
  • Participation in collaborative design reviews across teams to improve ease of assembly and maintenance of early concept prototypes
  • Establishing clear and concise build documentation
  • Transferring build processes to external contract manufacturing partners for low volume production
  • What we are looking for and a successful candidate for this role will have
  • 4-10 years of relevant professional experience
  • Mastery of electromechanical assembly techniques including fine SMD rework, high flex cable harnesses, and assembly of mechanical assemblies with a variety of fasteners, pins, gears, and mating features
  • Strong debugging and analysis skills to assist in the triage of new problems and failures in a range of domains (mechanical, communications, electronics)
  • Hands-on experience operating lab instrumentation (oscilloscope, multimeter, logic analyzer, power supply, programmable load)
  • Basic knowledge of Ethernet networking principles
  • Comfort in a Linux environment with a working knowledge of common Linux utilities
  • Additional desirable skills could include
  • Experience with data acquisition modules or systems
  • Experience with custom battery packs
  • Experience with design best practices for rugged/field-deployable systems (including shock, vibe, dynamic flex, etc)
  • Python scripting experience
  • Associates degree in electronics technology, automotive technology, manufacturing or similar field
  • We provide equal employment opportunities to all employees and applicants for employment and prohibit discrimination and harassment of any type without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, disability status, genetics, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local laws.
