Senior Infrastructure Developer/Systems Engineer - Python at RightHand Robotics
Somerville., MA, US

At RightHand Robotics, we have a rapidly growing, and highly capable engineering team building robotic piece-picking solutions and deploying them around the globe. Our product has to be reliable enough to run non-stop on production fleets of robots in the world’s largest warehouses. If you’re simultaneously excited and a bit terrified about what this could mean for you, good! If working hands-on with robots on a regular basis intrigues you, read on!

We are seeking a self-motivated individual to join our growing software infrastructure team. You will join a small but very experienced team to build developer tools and system infrastructure for a constantly expanding global network of robots. The Infrastructure team primarily solves the kind of problems that affect all of the robots - from network security and kernel tuning to software deployment and data collection. With a heavy emphasis on automation (we are a robot company, after all) we build the glue between applications, deployment, and R&D. We’re also a primary resource for digging into really strange problems - and for identifying things that are likely to become problems before they actually catch fire.

You need:

  • Linux tool-development skills
  • Solid Python development skills
  • Ubuntu or Debian systems and packaging experience
  • Experience with computer hardware, not just virtual or cloud services.
  • Experience with git on multi-person projects
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Interest in security and networking
  • An eagerness to dig in and find the root causes of obscure problems

We'd like it if you also:

  • Know how to handle root privileges when something is already on fire
  • Have experience bridging the gap between "what stakeholders want" and "what we can build right now”
  • Have experience working from a ticketing system (we use JIRA)
  • Are comfortable with hardware (computers and robots, and being able to debug problems which are partly outside the software “box”)

Our perks include:

  • Flexible vacation
  • Generous premium coverage for medical and dental plans
  • Robots, galore!
