Senior Robotics Product Manager

A great opportunity to be a key part of a growing product team, responsible for defining and driving our product roadmap to address the needs of customers developing autonomous robots and drones.

Background

High performance autonomous robotic solutions are no longer limited to factories and warehouses, but are becoming more and more common in environments such as hospitals, hotels and homes. As robots operate in less constrained, more dynamic environments, spatial understanding is essential for reliable operation and intelligent behaviour. There are three levels of spatial understanding required to enable robust, reliable autonomy: pose tracking (localisation), mapping and semantics. Using vision as the core sensing modality, all three levels of spatial understanding can be combined to offer full stack Spatial AI, providing richer maps, robustness to change and greater adaptability to challenging, dynamic environments.

With significant VC funding from top investors around the world, we have developed breakthrough visual spatial software solutions for next generation robots and consumer electronics harnessing computer vision, sensor fusion and machine learning.
