  • Experience with C/C++ build tools (e.g., Make, CMake) and Test Driven Development (TDD).

Nice to Haves:

  • Experience with embedded software platforms and game engine development.
  • Familiarity with cloud service providers (e.g., AWS) and Robotic Operating Systems (ROS).
  • Experience with 3D computer vision, SLAM, Lidar, IMU, and sensor fusion.
  • Knowledge of open-source optimization and math libraries (e.g., Boost, Eigen, g2o).
  • Background in hardware and experience in an Agile, Scrum, or SAFe environment.

Join us to push the boundaries of computer vision technology and help shape the future of SLAM software for the global market!
