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.

This is a perfect job for you if you are a strong programmer with versatile software development track record and a passion for AI and robotics. This role will need to jump between cloud services and on-robot software - which will mean working across teams independently to solve problems.

Responsibilities:

  • build and maintain a library of object detection models for several hundred objects in construction, manufacturing, energy sector, food processing
  • creative implementation of input data filtering for object detection applications

Requirements:

  • 2+ years of proven academic or industry experience with object detection models
  • 1+ year of prior experience and proven track record in any software engineering area NOT related to Data Science or Machine Learning
  • excellent Python skills
  • well-structured approach to problem solving, creativity, strong communication skills
  • leadership skills
