My new client is an exciting machine vision and robotics software company based in Tokyo, which is looking to recruit the brightest talent in the field to work in their location. In the future, some remote or US-based work will probably be available, but not now.  They were stealthily founded three years ago and are already fully self-funded and profitable with a good revenue stream that has grown by 20% per year.

They gather the smartest people to tackle industrial automation problems, and are looking for talented engineers to work on motion-planning, object recognition and pose estimation for robotic manipulation, in many challenging scenarios such as random bin-picking and box-picking. They work in a fast paced, Agile environment, where they constantly collaborate, peer review ideas, and test proposed solutions. They encourage continuous brainstorming and learning within the team.

Relocation assistance and competitive salaries will be provided.
