POSITION: EMBEDDED SYSTEMS ENGINEER Full Time – Houston, TX
ARIX Technologies is a robotics startup based in Houston, Texas looking for a new teammate experienced in embedded systems/control systems. Founded by a former ExxonMobil engineer to address a major unsolved industry need, we’re a team of mechatronics engineers seeking to bring IoT and automation into the oil & gas (and eventually water, utilities, and transportation) industries through robotics and data analytics. We’re developing an autonomous pipe-crawling inspection robot and a big data visualization software and looking for someone who wants to have a direct and immediate impact in a growing company (you’d help lead the control systems/embedded systems going forward and will have significant decision-making power). We’re venture-backed by corporate, university, and financial VCs and currently prototyping and field testing in preparation for first sales in 2019. Both salary and equity are offered. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
