Applied Research Engineer, Vision Systems

At farm-ng, our mission is to support a sustainable future through applied robotics. We’re starting with a robotics hardware and software platform for farmers, big and small, and space exploration. We are working closely with some of the most innovative farmers in the world on the central coast of California who are deploying our offroad electric autonomous mobile robot - the Amiga - in their operations, while building the autonomy stack from first principles and proving it as the visual navigation solution for an upcoming NASA CLPS Moon lander. Curious how the next generation of farms and landing on the moon overlap? Join us and find out!


  • Invent novel perception algorithms and robotics solutions.
  • Contribute to steering the technology roadmap for space exploration, the farm robotics platform, and their shared technical foundations.
  • Design and implement computer vision applications and libraries.

Minimum Qualification

  • PhD or MSc in Computer Vision, Robotics, Computer Science / related field, or alternatively a comparable industry career with a track record in relevant research projects.
  • Strong background in Geometric Computer Vision such as SLAM, 3d reconstruction and/or sensor calibration, either using classic computer vision techniques or deep learning.
  • Experience coding in c++.

Preferred Qualification

  • Fluent in modern c++ (c++11, c++14, c++17, c++20).
  • Background in classic computer vision or graphics.
  • Background in Geometric Computer Vision, such as SLAM, 3d reconstruction and/or sensor calibration.
