Outstanding humans wanted.
To build great robots, we need great people. Dextrous is building a robotic system for manipulating objects at superhuman speeds, with game-changing applications in logistics and beyond. If you love to build, experiment, and create alongside a team of problem-solving technical experts, then you may be in the right place.
We build
in Memphis.
Memphis, TN is quite literally the center of it all. Sitting squarely at the intersection of major air, rail, road, and river lines, it’s the largest logistics hub in the country. That’s why Dextrous Robotics HQ is located in the heart of this city on the rise. Culturally, Memphis is unmatched — it’s personality can be seen, heard, tasted, and felt the moment you step foot here (and the cost of living is hard to beat, too). Join us and see for yourself.

Software Engineer 

Dextrous software engineers develop components for our high-speed robotic manipulation system. We will consider both junior-level and senior-level candidates.

Who we’re looking for:

  • You have experience developing software for robots under real-time constraints
  • You are in the top 5% of C++ developers
  • You thrive in and contribute to a culture of software engineering best practices
  • You take joy in designing algorithms and creating abstractions
  • You pass your knowledge on to others in your team, and you spend time on your craft (maybe you’re a Git wiz, you write tools to speed common tasks, or you’ve done some devops to speed overall development throughput)
  • You are driven to rapidly field real robots and are motivated by high-impact engineering applications that have the potential to revolutionize society


Responsibilities will include:

  • Collaborating with our hardware and software teams to build a the highest quality robotic system product possible
  • Helping to institute practices to reduce the time between committing a change to our codebase and that change being deployed
  • Following software practices that produce maintainable code, including automated testing, continuous integration, and rigorous code review


Necessary qualifications:

  • You have significant industry experience with a strong track record of software contributions
  • You have experience programming in ROS, LCM, or another IPC mechanism for robotics
  • You have experience developing on Linux
  • You keep up with developments and innovations in software engineering
  • You are passionate about deploying a large fleet of robots that will operate around people in the real world


Compensation and work environment:

  • Competitive base pay w/ benefits
  • Equity incentive package
  • Relocation package
  • Remote flexible
  • Professional development opportunities

Perception Engineer

Dextrous perception engineers develop and deploy the visual perception components for our high-speed robotic manipulation system. We’re currently looking for an engineer to develop a robust, high-quality system and to evaluate its performance quantitatively.


Who we’re looking for:

  • You have experience integrating and deploying robotic perception R&D onto real robotic systems (including debugging, calibrating, and optimizing)
  • You have practical experience that includes data fusion for object tracking, system calibration, model building and matching, image labeling, and segmentation (experience enabling robot manipulation and pick-and-place applications is preferred)
  • You want to work for a company that is driven to rapidly field real robots
  • You are passionate about addressing hard perception problems in complex, unstructured environments
  • You are driven and motivated by high-impact engineering applications that have the potential to revolutionize society


Responsibilities will include:

  • Developing and implementing algorithms for high-speed detection, tracking, and classification of static and dynamic objects for robotic manipulation from RGB-D data
  • Collaborating with our hardware team to configure our RGB-D and related systems
  • Investigating new sensors and establishing ways to integrate them into our sensor fusion and perception stacks
  • Designing, testing, and supporting your software from simulation to prototypes to a scaled fleet
  • Following software practices that produce maintainable code, including automated testing, continuous integration, and rigorous code review


Necessary qualifications:

  • You have a PhD, MS, or equivalent industry experience
  • You are a talented software developer, ideally with experience in C++ and experience analyzing and debugging robotic perception algorithms
  • You have a strong track record in inventing and deploying innovative perception algorithms to robotic systems in real-world environments
  • You have expertise in relevant technical areas like object recognition, segmentation, dense 3D reconstruction, tracking, sensor fusion, and state estimation
  • You are passionate about deploying a large fleet of robots that will operate around people in the real world


Compensation and work environment:

  • Competitive base pay w/ benefits
  • Equity incentive package
  • Relocation package
  • Remote flexible
  • Professional development opportunities
