Vicarious aims to transform robotics by creating robots with human level performance on real-world manipulation tasks. We are passionate about changing the world with science and software, and we are looking for exceptional people to join us in that mission. You will join a small, tightly knit collective of engineer-scientists committed to solving these problems. Our focus is on building robotic manipulation systems that are beyond the state of the art by integrating perception, concept learning, reasoning, and motor control as we pursue the long term goal of artificial general intelligence.

As an IT Engineer at Vicarious you will be working to support the experiments, systems, and researchers that are pushing the boundaries of robotics and AI. This will involve many of the typical functions of an IT Engineer at a growing company, as well as domain specific challenges such as administering a shared lab of Linux desktops connected to physical robots. You will work with the other members of the Vicarious engineering team to ensure a smooth experience for researchers as they transition between their personal laptops, cluster machines, and shared desktops.

  • Provision new equipment (laptops, desktops), including performing maintenance and upgrades of existing hardware
  • Onboard and offboard employees as needed
  • Resolve (and automate where possible) user requests that come through the IT helpdesk
  • Manage shared Linux desktops (typically attached to a robot)
  • Provide timely and quality IT support to all employees (OSX and Linux)

Desired skills and experience:

  • 3+ years of hands-on experience administering / supporting Linux (Ubuntu preferred).
  • Some familiarity with Mac OSX and Windows Server (Active Directory) is highly desirable.
  • Solid networking fundamentals (TCP/IP model, static/dynamic routing, Layer-2 isolation) are a plus.
  • Experience administering Confluence and/or Jira services are a plus.
  • Experience managing a computer lab in an academic or research setting is a plus.
  • Exposure to configuration management systems such as Puppet or Chef are a plus.

Desired Personal Qualities

  • Integrity
  • Ability to admit when wrong
  • Altruism
  • Fearlessness working outside your comfort zone
  • Patience with others
  • Fast worker
  • Excellent communication skills and ability to work with people of various backgrounds
