Rethink Robotics develops intelligent, affordable, user-friendly robots that can operate safely next to people in a wide range of manufacturing, production and R&D environments. Founded in 2008 by robotics pioneer Rodney Brooks, former director of the MIT Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, the company is successfully introducing robots into organizations and applications for which robots have historically been impractical. Just as the PC revolutionized the way computers were used by office workers in the era of mainframes, Rethink Robotics is revolutionizing the way people in manufacturing, production and R&D environments can access and use robots in their jobs. Our robots provide a productivity advantage for manufacturers and a robust innovation platform for laboratories, while redefining how and where robots can be used. More importantly, Rethink Robotics robots will help change the economics of producing everyday products, making it more competitive to manufacture them in the United States, rather than outsourcing that work to low-cost regions. In this way, our vision of re-shoring manufacturing to the United States is being realized. The Vision Engineer will be an intrinsic part of a dynamic, collaborative team that believes deeply in the value of what we are doing and that we can achieve it. We think big, but we have a bias for action and making it happen. While were changing the world with our visionary invention, we know that customers only pay for successful execution--so were focused on both. Were out in front anticipating our customers needs, ahead of the technology, and ahead of expectations. Were humble, were great, and were unconventional. Changing the world has never been this much fun. Vision Engineer Mission & Responsibilities ? Develop robust vision applications, focused on parts detection, localization, inspection ?
