Fox Robotics is at the bleeding edge of warehouse automation, with a focus on autonomous forklifts. As the leader in this space, Fox has clear product market fit and is scaling fast, with plans to rapidly grow from 100 employees to nearly ~160+ this year alone. With this growth, employees have a once-in-a-career opportunity to learn, all while working as part of a mission-driven team focused on making robots that work.

The Cloud Services team is hiring a Senior Software Engineer to work on a wide variety of projects, from data visualization tools that help our teams understand and improve robot performance to event-based systems relaying tasks and status updates between our robots and the cloud. We’re looking for an engineer with strong experience working on data-intensive cloud services who’s also comfortable contributing to our internal-facing web tools and eager to pick up new technologies.

What you’ll do:

  • Build backend interfaces to accept tasks from third party systems and distribute them to connected robots, enabling a customer’s fleet to efficiently and collaboratively load and unload trailers
  • Develop a flexible and fault-tolerant log upload system to ensure the most valuable data collected by our robots is uploaded to the cloud for analysis
  • Design and implement 3D visualizations of log data collected from the robots to help autonomy engineers and our Robot Operations Center understand and improve performance
  • Contribute to the entire software development lifecycle, from design through deployment
  • Collaborate closely with stakeholders to ensure the features you implement meet current requirements and scale to support future customer requests
  • Help less experienced engineers grow their skills through coaching, code reviews, and pair programming
  • Participate in sprint activities, from writing stories for prioritization through suggesting improvements in retrospectives

What you’ll need:

  • At least 5 years of industry experience developing production software in Python or a similar language
  • Experience with REST APIs, MQTT (or PubSub in general), and Google Cloud (or another cloud provider)
  • Strong technical and non-technical communication skills for collaborating effectively with remote employees as well as those in the office
  • A passion for sustainable development practices and leaving code in a better state than you found it

Nice to have:

  • Familiarity with TypeScript, MongoDB, OAuth, React, or three.js
  • Experience with robotics, IoT environments, or Warehouse Management Systems

Benefits and perks:

  • A once in a career opportunity to build, alongside colleagues who deeply care (plus robots that aren’t bad, either!)
  • Competitive salary and stock options
  • Generous healthcare options
  • 401k match
  • Unlimited PTO
  • Other perks that connect us, including lunch on Fridays, team building activities, and more!

More About Fox Robotics

We make robots that work.

We envision a world where robots serve as a human multiplier for dull and dangerous work. The warehousing industry sees more than 52,000 cases of injuries every year in the US. Our first product is an automated trailer unloader (forklift) that quickly demonstrates measurable value to our customers by both improving efficiency while also increasing safety.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
