Lead Robotics Engineer | wheel.me

Introducing the world’s first autonomous wheel, wheel.me Genius

Want to solve real-world robotics problems? Want to be part of groundbreaking technology innovation? Want to join a company that has been referred to one of the most interesting robotics startups? 

We introduce the world’s first autonomous wheel, wheel.me Genius. 

Tech solution: 

Wheel.me Genius product development is divided into 4 main parts: Full stack, Robotics, Electronics/Embedded Software and Mechanics. Currently, Wheel.me Genius is coming very close to a preproduction stage where custom electronics are being finalized and mechanics have been carefully designed for a mass production capability. Robotics part is written in C++/Python and uses ROS2 as a framework (currently on Foxy) and Docker. The communication with the cloud/backend is based on gRPC. We use GitLab CI/CD for a pipeline and also in a process of integrating a simulated test for our robotics repository in order to work in a well-tested, professional environment (which you will play a big part in creating one). 

Tech roadmap

Complete the full CI/CD pipeline with more static and dynamic/simulated tests using gitlab CI/CD, enhance LiDAR localization system, improve motion planners and increase the system safety for industrial use (for example collision identification).

In this role, you will:

  • be responsible for designing perception algorithms and implementing them in robust, efficient, and well-tested C++ code
  • solve real-world perception challenges such as sensor fusion, SLAM and local/global path planning
  • collaborate closely with other members on the team and lead a team of robotics engineers


We are looking for a highly skilled Lead/Senior Robotics Engineer who possesses the following: 

  • A strong technical background. BS, MS or PhD with 2+ years of academic or industry experience in designing and implementing perception algorithms. You are a skilled software engineer with experience in C++ and strong problem-solving skills. You are passionate about solving real-world robotics problems, and you have ideally worked on autonomous robots before. Prior experience in developing industrial mobile robots is a plus.
  • A team player. You take ownership and work with the team to deliver exceptional results.You are interested in the performance of the entire system across engineering disciplines.
  • The ability to build and iterate quickly. You enjoy working fast and smart, and you are comfortable in the earlier stages of developing an algorithm from scratch.


  • A place with big goals that we trust we can achieve.
  • A fast-paced environment where we work with talented, committed and supportive teammates.
  • Work with Fortune 500 companies around the world!
