Website Symbio Robotics
Symbio makes industrial robots do the impossible.
Symbio Robotics is looking for an innovative leader with strong technical and people leadership skills to lead and grow our Computer Vision team.
Symbio Robotics’ Computer Vision team does new research to develop algorithms and solutions for controlling industrial robots based on camera images. The infrastructure and models built by the CV team help the robots perceive the world around them, and make real-time decisions to solve specific automation tasks. In addition, the team works to make these solutions part of a broader platform for application development. The core of Symbio’s IP will continue to be expressed in our computer vision solutions and drive the success of our deployments out in the field.
We’re looking for an engineering leader to bring creative and strategic methods of working that lead to developing more vision solutions running in production for our customers. Just as important as developing new solutions will be generalizing existing solutions so they drive value for more customers in automotive manufacturing and additional industry verticals such as aerospace and electronics, and more.
Build and lead Symbio’s computer vision organization. The goal of the team is to innovate new solutions that lead to code in production. Then generalize those solutions to sell more widely.
Success will be determined by results in the following areas: innovation, new IP created, team effectiveness, hiring, and the team’s ability to work across the entire engineering and product organizations to deliver applications for Symbio customers.
