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.

What you’ll do:

  • Design, implement and run software tests for mobile robot drive and pick n’ place capabilities.
  • Automation using simulation and hardware in the loop testing for verification of robot behaviors.
  • Own software integration testing of systems and subsystems.
  • Implement and conduct tests via scripting, data log parsing and analysis
  • Collaborate with software developers to develop tests and make it usable and compatible with multiple robots.
  • Perform root cause analysis and system level debugging of hardware/software components for our mobile robot platform.
  • Perform shock and vibration testing on mobile robot to collect the data for profiling
  • Perform Thermal testing for component level of mobile robot and analysis the data and generate report
  • Troubleshoot system problems in production or design by investigating issues related to product performance or production difficulties

What you’ll need:

  • Demonstrated ability to test complex electro-mechanical systems
  • Experience with general purpose programming environments, languages and scripting systems, data analysis packages, Linux, C++, git
  • BS / MS in computer science, robotics, engineering or equivalent work experience

  • Robotics / supply chain / logistics experience a plus but not required
  • A hands-on problem solver who can clearly communicate results.
  • Familiarity with robotics, mechatronics, or embedded systems
  • You will work closely with cross-functional teams to understand the requirements
  • Test Planning and Execution: Create detailed test plans, test cases, and test scripts, ensuring adequate coverage of all robotic system components and functionalities
  • Aware about testing activities, including functional testing, regression testing, performance testing, and stress testing
  • Test Automation: Develop automated test scripts using appropriate tools and frameworks
  • A willingness to take personal responsibility for problem solving

Benefits and perks:

  • A once in a career opportunity to build, alongside colleagues who deeply care (plus robots that aren’t bad, either!)

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.
