Robotics Software Test Engineer

Who are we?

SLAMcore is a London-based startup founded by visual SLAM algorithm pioneers and specialists. With generous funding from top venture companies, we are developing breakthrough Spatial AI solutions for next generation robots and other smart devices by harnessing computer vision, sensor fusion and machine learning. Our aim is to greatly reduce the time and cost for companies to deploy advanced robotic solutions whilst delivering performance they could never achieve on their own. 

Our vision for this role:

We are looking for an exceptional individual to join our team as a Test Engineer. SLAM is emerging from the research laboratory into real products, but we are only at the beginning of a journey. This technology is evolving into a general Spatial AI capability for intelligent devices, to help them understand and interact with their surroundings. SLAMcore intends to be at the centre of this exciting movement but to do this well, it is essential our solutions have been extensively tested in the real world, on real hardware. A robot that gets easily lost or a drone that crashes 1 in 100 flights are just toys.  We strive to deliver consistent, reliable performance that our customers can truly rely on.

You will be working with our team of world experts in SLAM, computer vision and software engineering to ensure our SLAM solutions meet the highest standard in terms of quality, robustness and reliability. You will be comfortable in pushing our technology to its limits, identifying and resolving issues with our software and systems.
