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.

We are seeking a highly skilled and experienced Staff Engineer to lead our simulation efforts within the autonomous robotics division. As a senior technical leader, you will play a pivotal role in setting the technical direction for simulation technologies that underpin our autonomy stacks, including perception pipelines, planning, SLAM, and the extensive testing required to ensure our robots can operate effectively in complex, real-world environments.

This is a new function at the company and you’ll need to be excited about creating this capability from the ground up!

What you’ll do:

  • Architect, build, and scale infrastructure to enable efficient and effective simulation of complex scenarios and environments.
  • Provide technical leadership and mentorship to a team of engineers, guiding them in the implementation of simulation technologies and best practices.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to understand requirements and integrate simulation tools and processes into the broader engineering workflow.
  • Document and disseminate technical knowledge and insights throughout the organization to foster a culture of learning and innovation.

What you’ll need:

  • 8+ years of experience developing simulation for automated or robotic systems
  • Experience with robotics middleware, isaac sim, gazebo or similar robotics simulation tools

Nice to have:

  • Warehouse or logistics experience
  • Expertise with robotics

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.
