Robotics Engineer

Vacancy expired!

Dynamic Locomotion, “Dynaloco”, is looking for a Robotics Engineer to design, fabricate, and test our dynamic and energy-efficient mobile robots and machines. The Robotics Engineer will work on one or more hardware development contracts and will be involved in the entire robot design process, from initial concepts to detailed mechanical/electrical/control design, prototyping, manufacturing, assembly, and testing. The Robotics Engineer will interact directly with Dynaloco’s clients to understand their needs and ensure that the final product meets or exceeds the clients’ requirements.

Our ideal candidate will embrace: working in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial and collaborative environment; creating cool machines individually and as a team; and continually learning and finding new solutions to engineering challenges. Candidates should have experience in the design of machines and mechatronic systems, either in mechanical design, electrical and electronics engineering, controls and embedded programming, or some combination of these. Experience designing machines for production is a plus.

This position can include some remote work and flexibility in schedule and hours, but as a hardware-oriented position, the Robotics Engineer will generally work during business hours on-site in our Groton, NY facility. The responsibilities of this position can be adapted to fit a candidate's skill set, and candidates with more than the listed qualifications are eligible for a more senior title and higher compensation.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, some or all of the following:

Providing engineering input during all stages of product development

Creating detailed mechanism designs, including bearings, gears, motors, chains, springs, and other components

Design of real-time distributed systems for sensors and motor control

Industrial electronics and control panel design and testing

Performing high-reliability mechanical design and analysis for robot applications

Generating fabrication documentation and vendor specifications

Meeting with clients and understanding requirements to create product specifications

Manufacturing, assembling, and testing components and complete robots

Desired qualifications

Positive attitude, highly motivated, and excited to solve problems and learn

Bachelor’s Degree or higher in Electrical/Robotics/Mechanical Engineering (or equivalent degree title). M.S./M.Eng. is a plus.

1-2 years minimum of experience (including internships) in an engineering position which includes both design and hands-on work.

Experience in 3D CAD programs (SolidWorks preferred) and/or ECAD.

Ability to work on-site in Groton, NY to develop and test hardware

Ability to demonstrate theoretical and practical engineering fundamentals

Hands-on experience designing, assembling, and testing mechanical assemblies and controls

Design for manufacturing and assembly

Familiarity with typical fabrication processes

Ability to earn trust, maintain positive and professional relationships, and strengthen our culture of inclusion

Organized, detail-oriented, and committed to producing well-documented products

Commitment to continuous improvement of company processes and products as it grows

Candidates who meet some, but not all qualifications listed above are strongly encouraged to apply!

Compensation for this position is highly dependent on experience and skills. Equity is available as supplemental compensation for permanent employees. Base starting salary for a new BS graduate is $70,000 per year, with salaries up to $90,000 per year for highly-qualified applicants.

At Dynaloco, you will have the opportunity to work on cutting-edge robots in a startup environment. Our engineers are designing some of the most advanced robots in the world, including a humanoid robot capable one day of completing a marathon, a logistics robot to unload semi trailers piled high with packages, and a long-range marine drone. Dynaloco is dedicated to creating a positive environment for its employees. Every employee of Dynaloco is a valued member of our team and we expect everyone to be treated as such. We value diversity, empathy and inclusion, communication and transparency, and innovation. You will have direct access to the company’s leadership to share ideas and concerns. Dynaloco is located in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of upstate NY, 14 miles from Cornell University and near Ithaca, regularly ranked as one of America’s best college towns.
