Rapid Robotics

About Rapid Robotics
Rapid’s mission is to provide manufacturers a robotic solution that can be deployed against simple tasks in hours rather than weeks, and at a fraction of the cost of other automation solutions that require extensive manual programming. Our product is a fully integrated robotic arm work cell that is trained to perform tasks out of the box, and learns new tasks via our cloud infrastructure, AI, and Computer Vision.

Rapid’s software provides our customers with an intuitive interface that gives them the tools to deploy and redeploy Rapid’s automated work cells on their manufacturing lines without having to be a robotics expert. To enable accessible and simple user-facing controls requires an extensive and specialized technology stack. Rapid’s platform is powered by AI and Computer Vision that drastically reduces the complexity, cost, and time typically required to set up a robotic arm. In short, we are automating the process for deploying manufacturing automation.

Rapid’s solution is already deployed with customers, and is proven to deliver increased profits and decreased costs, making our solution indispensable for the future of manufacturing.

The Sr. Frontend Software Engineer will be responsible for leading the architecture and development of the UI components for the entire Rapid Robotics Cloud and Edge Platform using web, mobile and native technologies. Experience building data visualization and 3D world simulations (3D/game engines) is a plus. Candidates should have an eye for detail and appreciation for building the highest quality user experience. We are a small, agile team that needs quick and effective development of our core technologies.

In this role, you will build complex user interfaces from the ground up using the latest frontend technologies, translate business requirements into technical requirements and develop new user-facing features. You will interact with a diverse team of Designers, Distributed Systems Engineers, Roboticists, Computer Vision Experts and Mechanical Engineers. You will communicate and present your work in a clear and simple manner and translate design mockups into high quality code.
