5D Robotics is coming to Greater Boston!

We recently opened an algorithms group on Mass. Ave in Cambridge and are
looking to hire some local talent. The work will cover a wide range of
topics and fields, so candidates need to be comfortable picking up new
skills. Robotics is still young, so an ideal candidate would be broadly
read to understand how similar problems are being attacked in more mature

All work for the immediate future will be in simulation, so candidates will
need to become very comfortable operating in rviz and Gazebo. As time goes
on, we will acquire test space and begin shipping robots in from our
Carlsbad office.
