The AIR lab , part of the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, focuses on developing perception and planning algorithms for unmanned aerial vehicles of various scales (Full-scale helicopters to small size quad-rotors). Our work pushes the state of the art in autonomous flying and ground vehicles and we are looking for individuals that share our vision, are self-motivated, quick learners.
We work on several projects for private and government entities with fast-paced engineering cycles where design, build, test, and analyze the results of these new systems. Our work atmosphere enables individuals to collaborate on exciting projects, work with real systems, and test their ideas.
The AIR lab at the is now recruiting candidates for an exciting opportunity to test cutting edge autonomous flying robots. In this position, you will focus on testing autonomous robotic systems. Your goal is to ensure safe, professional, and repeatable tests of our autonomous systems and management of the assets to ensure a high level of reliability of our systems for demonstrations and experiments.
While technical know-how is useful, we are truly looking for someone who enjoys developing and following test procedures, and reporting findings in an effective manner.
Your core responsibilities will include:
Understand, develop, and revise system requirements
Develop and implement test protocols
Report findings of tests to development team to drive revisions to the system
Take responsibility to manage the robots and lab organization to ensure a high-level of reliability of our assets
Familiarity with requirements analysis and management systems
Experience with formal test paradigms, results analysis, and trouble shooting skills
Experience with configuration management
Ability to develop and follow procedures
Good oral and written communication skills
Excellent organizational skills
Ability to maintain accurate and detailed records
Ability to interact with all levels of the campus community and end users
Ability to organize a field test team and run organized tests with unmanned air vehicles
Ability to fly quadcopter/fixed-wing systems
A driver's license is preferred
