Rethink Robotics is developing a family of low cost and highly intelligent robots that can perform simple tasks in a manufacturing environment, increasing the productivity of the people around them who are doing the more highly skilled and value-added work. Rethink is based in Bostonâs Innovation District and was founded by Rodney Brooks, former Director of the MIT Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, and a co-Founder of iRobot Corporation. Rethinkâs robots can be taken out of the box, taught a task by an untrained factory worker, and be productive in a few hours, eliminating the need for systems integration. They are safe to interact with people at close range and are easy to train and retrain on the fly. They are nothing like any existing industrial robots.
Rethink Robotics is revolutionizing manufacturing robots, and the very nature of what people think a robot can do and be. More importantly, we are driving a new economic reality, making it more competitive to manufacture products in the US, Europe, and Japan, rather than outsourcing to low-cost regions.
The Software Engineer, Tools & Release will be an intrinsic part of a dynamic, collaborative team that believes deeply in the value of what we are doing and that we can achieve it. We think big, but we have a bias for action and âmaking it happen.â While weâre changing the world with our visionary invention, we know that customers only pay for successful execution--so weâre focused on both. Weâre out in front anticipating our customersâ needs, ahead of the technology, and ahead of expectations. Weâre humble, weâre great, and weâre unconventional. Changing the world has never been this much fun.
