Darkhive is making robotics accessible. We are a new startup focused on the application of robotics to the public safety and defense community. Our approach in accessibility is built on three pillars of low-cost, ease-of-use, and open interface design to enable extensibility by third parties.

Darkhive is creating an autonomy software stack that will enable military and public safety users to intuitively interact with robotics platforms to understand their common environment and make decisions when it matters most. In addition to our core software suite, Darkhive is creating a palm-sized, autonomous drone optimized to demonstrate the capabilities of our software stack. The integrated software and hardware solution are key to realizing the full potential of the product in our target markets.

The Role:

You will lead software initiatives solving challenging vision perception problems in small aerial robotics. You'll architect and build the roadmap for our software stack across our product lines. As an early hire, your purview will span sensors, operating system, algorithm development, simulation, and optimization to bring up CV and ML within our hardware. Help us build a vision of making robots safe, easy, and affordable.


You bring:

  • Deep Expertise in C/C++, with a focus on SLAM and navigation. (5+ years preferably with industry experience)
  • Bachelors or more in Robotics, Software Engineering, Physics, Computer Science or similar.
  • Experience with developing for mobile/embedded platforms such as NVIDIA XavierNX, Qualcomm Snapdragon, or Intel Neural Compute Stick (Movidius).
  • Experience with ML Frameworks such as OpenVino, Pytorch Lite, etc. for perception problems and translating them to embedded/edge environments.
  • US. Citizenship

Bonus Qualifications:

  • Real-time, critical software development where latency matters.
  • Rust/Python experience a plus.
  • Familiarity with ROS/2 or PX4 a plus.
  • Previous software development on a small uncrewed aerial system (sUAS).
  • An active security clearance (this is not a requirement for the position).

  • Medical, dental, and vision insurance
  • 401k
  • Unlimited Vacation

Darkhive is an equal-opportunity employer, and we encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply. If you are someone passionate about making autonomy accessible for everyone, we'd love to hear from you!
