At Agility Robotics, we are building the world's first-to-market bipedal humanoid robot designed to operate in human spaces, with humans, for humans, and around humans. This new robot, Digit, is a platform for physical work in human spaces, turning basic labor into a software application. We focus on creating robots that are useful in the real world with features such as long battery life, mobility over all human-accessible terrain, great force-sensitive physical interaction capabilities, excellent human interaction, and a clear path to affordable hardware and large deployments in the real world.

We are looking for people to join our team who are as excited as we are to solve these complex problems. Be part of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform the Robotics industry. With a culture of internal mobility, there's an opportunity to thrive in a variety of disciplines and make an impact on our future. Join us to solve one of today's most interesting robotics engineering challenges and see the results of your work.

The Senior Electrical Engineer will help architect, design, and develop next-generation robots while supporting the manufacture and test of existing designs. You will collaborate with a multi-discipline team of engineers to ensure the system design meets system and subsystem requirements and you will be responsible for implementing, testing, and validating custom hardware systems for our robot platforms.
