Robotic Research – Mechanical Engineer Job Opening

Robotic Research, LLC is currently seeking applicants for full-time mechanical engineers of all experience levels to work on state-of-the-art autonomous vehicle systems.  We offer a fast-paced environment where engineering comes first, and a breadth and depth of skills, knowledge, and interests are highly valued.  Candidates will have ample opportunities to get their hands dirty testing their designs in our 40,000 square foot engineering and test facility (with 241 acres of testing area) located in Clarksburg, MD.

Robotic Research has been developing cutting-edge software and hardware for autonomous ground, air, and naval robotic systems since 2002.   We specialize in developing solutions for DoD, Automotive, Law Enforcement, and First Responder applications.  We have a close-knit team of over 130 employees devoted to delivering the best robotics technologies to meet and exceed our customers' needs. Our systems combine advanced control systems, autonomous mobility, perception, and behavior generation software with innovative and sophisticated mechanical and electrical hardware.  We have a long history of successful program execution, and have hardware and software on commercial autonomous systems around the world, and some of the highest visibility DoD ground robotics programs.

Building on our past success with deploying robotic systems for both military and commercial applications, we are currently expanding operations and looking for new team members who want to make meaningful contributions in the field of autonomous systems.  If you think you would be a good fit for our team, we would love to hear from you.  Active security clearances are welcome but not needed to start.
