Robots for the real world

Who We Are:

Dusty Robotics develops robot-powered tools for the modern construction workforce.

While today’s buildings are built predominantly with manual labor, Dusty envisions a future in which skilled labor makes use of robotic automation to make the work safer, more efficient, and more precise! We want to create a future where construction workers don’t need to retire early because their bodies give out. In Dusty’s future, the buildings we live and work in are built by teams of creative and problem-solving construction crews who direct robots to do the dull/dirty/dangerous work.

What We’re Building:

Dusty bridges the gap between the digital world of building design with the skilled labor operating in the field, accelerating the digital transformation of the construction industry. The centerpiece of our strategy is the FieldPrinter: a mobile printer-on-wheels that prints building floorplans full-size on the concrete floor of a construction site. When errors in layout can cause multi-million-dollar mistakes, our product ensures that all field crews are building off of a single source of truth derived from the digital model.

What you’ll do

We are looking for a QA engineer with a keen interest in thoroughly testing robotic devices. This includes internal software on the robot, user interfaces, and physical product prototypes. If you have worked with robots, medical devices, IoT devices, 3D printers, CNC milling machines or any mechanical product with complex software, you’ll do great with our product!

This role is responsible for manually testing robot hardware and software. The QA engineer is an integral part of the Engineering team, where you’ll work as a peer with our hardware and software engineers. You’ll also work closely with our field operations team to track and recreate product issues that arise as they operate the robot on construction sites.


  • Review functional specs, Creating and execute test plans covering the user interface, APIs and physical operation of the robot
  • Testing new features and baseline functions throughout the product development cycle to surface issues early and often
  • Enhance test plan/test cases based on the customer feedback
  • Test automation using Python
  • Creating realistic physical test environments for our robot in the lab
  • Physical testing of product release in the field at construction sites
  • Coordinating with the field operations team to triage field issues and user feedback
  • Experience troubleshooting and managing bug tracking systems and test/requirement management systems
  • Excellent written and communication skills
  • Occasional travel to deployment sites to field test new releases or peak operations
  • Perform functional testing against simulator


  • Understanding of software QA processes
  • Proficiency in Python
  • Able to script simple test cases and enhance existing test cases a strong interest in learning more about automation, minimum of 1 year experience preferred
  • Excellent planning, communication and observational skills
  • A fertile imagination for generating test scenarios
  • 1-3 years commercial experience with a BS degree in a STEM field or equivalent experience preferred
  • Self-motivated, especially with respect to learning new software tools and best practices in quality assurance
  • Hands-on testing experience of physical products with complex software
  • Experience with API testing, UI testing using Selenium is a plus
  • Experience with AutoCAD or ability to learn is helpful
