Job Description:

The Research & Development Department's mission is to set the industry standard by finding new materials, methods, and technology to change the built environment and how we work. We are looking for dynamic, innovative, and passionate team members to join us in our movement to change our industry.

The R&D Robotics Engineer will be responsible for developing and deploying robotics solutions to transform the experience of our project teams. This team member will support robotics initiatives from concept through completion and coordinate across interdisciplinary teams, including project teams, consultants, hardware developers, software developers, subcontractors, and suppliers. They will support defining use cases, developing integrated solutions, coordinating field deployments, and documenting results and learnings. This team member will report to the R&D Robotics Lead and serve on an interdisciplinary team conducting research and developing novel robotics solutions for construction.

The ideal candidate will excel at the intersection of robotics, construction, and project management. They will routinely interface with robotics hardware & software, field testing infrastructure, 3D geospatial surveying & scanning systems, construction design software, and construction management software. While candidates are not required to have prior experience in all these topics, they should be passionate about both robotics and construction, able to learn outside of their trained competency quickly, and excited to roll up their sleeves when needed.

The candidate must be self-motivated, highly organized, and capable of working independently to execute complex projects. Key to this position are strong written and verbal communication skills, project management skills, creative thinking, relationship management, and meticulous attention to detail. Most importantly, candidates should be curious and excited about operating in new territory without fear of failure.


  • Build relationships across operations, site operations, and subcontractors to understand their needs, develop goals, and ensure that robotics initiatives are aligned to the needs of our project teams.
  • Execute the day-to-day testing of robotics solutions in the field, identify improvements, and support project teams as they integrate robotics into jobsite workflows.
  • Manage and maintain a growing fleet of robots for jobsite deployment.
  • Support planning project scopes, budgets, and goals, outlining key metrics to track and report.
  • Support the management of project budgets, data analysis, and lessons learned to drive meaningful insights and improvements in the business.
  • Act as brand ambassador for the firm, representing the company in industry and professional organizations.

  • Bachelor's degree (BA/BS) from four-year college or university.
  • Master's degree or 2 years of experience in robotics, engineering, commercial construction, architecture, or construction administration.
  • Previous experience on commercial job sites preferred.
  • Experience working with a wide variety of stakeholders and strong interpersonal skills.
  • Must be a self-starter, highly motivated, and able to work independently.
  • Detail-oriented, organized, and able to prioritize tasks across multiple projects.
  • Ability to effectively communicate complex technical topics in written and verbal formats to various audiences.
  • Proficiency in construction design, management, or BIM coordination software (e.g., Revit, Navisworks, Procore, ArcGIS).
  • Familiarity with reality capture methods and providers (e.g., DroneDeploy, OpenSpace).
  • Experience in geospatial surveying or 3D laser scanning and related analysis software, especially Leica and Faro workflows.
  • Experience in mobile robot sensing, perception, localization, navigation, networking, and behaviors for aerial and/or ground robots.
  • Experience with Robot Operating System (ROS) or related programming languages (e.g., C++, Python).
  • Experience designing, fabricating, integrating, and/or maintaining robotic hardware and sensor payloads.
