The Role

Are you a newly or nearly qualified Engineer? Do you have basic programming experience? If so, we have the perfect opportunity for you.

This is an exciting opportunity to work within the R&D team of an artificial intelligence (AI) start-up. You will be become part of an agile multidisciplinary team to help develop and deploy novel ground and air based robotic systems.

Key Responsibilities

The key responsibilities of a Graduate Research Engineer include, but are not limited to:

  • Contribute to research to broaden our IP base.
  • Work on rapid prototyping of new research to develop initial proofs of concept.
  • Rapidly advance prototypes through to initial commercial evaluation.
  • Use version control and documentation to manage project lifecycles.
  • Interface with pre-sales teams to support and respond to customer requests.

The Company

Opteran moves beyond today's Deep Learning AI to re-engineer 600 million years of evolution in insect brains onto a silicon chip. This breakthrough enables machines to see, sense, navigate and make autonomous decisions with a smaller, lighter and more efficient solution that operates off-network without training.

This is a different approach to autonomy, which doesn't succumb to the problems of machine learning. We reverse engineer real brains to produce autonomous systems that are robust and hyper-efficient; we call this approach 'natural intelligence'.

The Person

The key skills and qualities of a Graduate Research Engineer include:

  • Expecting or recently completed a University Degree in Electronic Engineering, Computer Science or equivalent.
  • Basic programming experience and a desire to advance this skill in one or more common languages such as python / C++.
  • A good rapid prototyping mindset.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, and an ability to function effectively in a team.

Desirable skills:

  • Experience with robotic or autonomous systems e.g., using ROS, working with drones
  • Basic programming experience with C
