About the role

Nextera Robotics is a fast-growing industrial robotics and AI company founded by MIT alumni. Nextera has an A-list client base including Dunkin Donuts, Tesla, Gilbane Building Co., and other Fortune 500 companies. Nextera graduated from Y-Combinator S20 and raised significant funding from top-tier investors to support it's mission of solving industrial automation.

Working at Nextera is a great opportunity for those who love to get things done. We are a fast-paced, highly technical organization. Our teams are kept small and agile to limit layers of unnecessary process. Autonomy is expected. Every engineer gets to see their work transition from ideas to high-value products. The work is challenging, but highly rewarding.

  • Autonomous robot on-board control and management systems
  • Machine Learning Operations (MLOps)
