About Us

Left Hand Robotics designs and assembles robots that tackle difficult, outdoor tasks.  We started the company with the idea to build a robot that would clear snow from walkways, but have quickly expanded to mowing as well.  Indeed, the robot itself is a platform capable of performing many outdoor tasks. It uses state-of-the-art technologies to perform its tasks including GPS, sensors, computer vision and other advanced artificial intelligence technologies.

We look to employ a diverse and highly talented team.  We are looking for innovators and risk takers - we are exploring a new frontier and we want people who are excited to take the journey with us.  We are small but growing, so everything you do will have a real impact on the company. We believe we have an array of interesting and challenging projects ready for those who want to challenge themselves.  If you are excited about robots and to work with other creative, fun, and passionate people, talk to us.

About the Job

Our robots are unique: they autonomously operate outside in harsh conditions (snow, cold, hot, wind, dusty, light and dark).  Yet each must reliably perform its job.

Our robots follow pre-computed paths and rely on GPS and dead reckoning to ensure they stay on task.  The robots incorporate a number of sensors to ensure that obstacles are avoided. In addition, our robots are constantly connected to our Robot Operations Center in the cloud where real-time status information is conveyed and stored so that our customers can monitor their robots in the field.

Safety is our priority - our robots must be able to react appropriately to their surroundings. In this position, you will be writing the algorithms that help correctly identify objects and safely stop/alter machine operation.

  • Bachelor’s degree required in Robotics, Computer Science,  Software Engineering, or Equivalent

  • 5+ years C++ programming experience

  • Experience with ROS

  • Experience with PCL or related point cloud filtering libraries/techniques

  • Experience with CV / image processing techniques
