Adresa/adresele jobului

We are looking for a robotics engineer with behind-the-scenes designers skills, who is responsible for creating robots and robotic systems that are able to perform duties that humans are either unable or prefer not to complete. Through their creations, a robotics engineer helps to make jobs safer, easier, and more efficient, particularly in the manufacturing industry.

What does a Robotics Engineer do?

A robotics engineer will spend the majority of their time designing the plans needed to build robots. They also design the processes necessary for the robot to run correctly. Some of these professionals are also responsible for designing the machines that actually assemble the robots. Once the design phase has been completed, only then do they move toward assembling the unit.

This type of engineer is responsible for creating several different types of robots that are used to complete a variety of different tasks. Prior to a robot being constructed, the engineer will have first researched and determined exactly what the robot will be used for, and the manner in which it will accomplish its goal. For these professionals, the building process will take a great deal of time. Robots are highly technical and difficult to create, and the task can be very tricky. For this reason it's not uncommon for a robotics engineer to only work on a handful of projects throughout his or her entire career. Professionals in this field need to be very patient.

Typical day-to-day duties include: 

  • Building, configuring, and testing robots 
  • Designing software systems to control their robotic systems, such as those robots used for manufacturing 
  • Designing automated robotic systems that are used to increase the production and precision levels within a specific industry 
  • Analyzing and evaluating the prototypes and robotic systems they have created. This is generally a never-ending task, since technology is constantly changing and advancing 
  • Reviewing and approving cost estimates and design calculati
  • Serving as technical support for the robotic systems they have created 
  • Teaching plans paths to robots 
  • Performing research into the design, operation and performance of robotic mechanism components or systems
