Devanthro is a Munich-based deep tech startup building robodies – remote robotic bodies for humans, as the next step in human communication. While robodies are a general-purpose technology, we’re convinced the most impactful application is in elderly care – a massive social challenge, for which we, as humanity, do not have a solution yet. Building on 9 years of full stack robotics R&D, 3 generations of humanoid robots and tens of thousands of real-world interactions of our robots with people in the real world, Devanthro embarks on the path to commercialize the robody technology in order to solve the global care crisis. 

At Devanthro you will join a team developing remote robotic avatars for people that resemble human form and are teleoperated through an immersive VR interface from any place in the world. Robodies are designed to co-exist alongside people and to seamlessly integrate into daily life in our homes. 

Fueled by the desire to bring this technology to millions of people, we are looking for a passionate and experienced Humanoid Robotics Engineer to join our team at Devanthro, where you will play a key role in developing advanced humanoid systems. In this position, you will be responsible for implementing robust control algorithms and safety routines required to deploy robodies in people’s homes.

What You’ll Do

  • Make robodies better robotic avatars for any human anywhere in the world
  • Develop, test and deploy control algorithms for whole-body manipulation tasks, including low-level motor control, kinematic control and obstacle avoidance
  • Design and establish robust development processes, including testing, integration, deployment and maintenance within defined user scenarios
  • Design and develop teleoperation-specific safety concepts 
  • Implement high-fidelity simulation models 
  • Collaborate with other Devanthro team members to engineer and ship high quality, reliable software that will be deployed to the real homes

What You’ll Bring

  • Passion to build and deploy capable and reliable humanoid robotic avatars
  • Affinity & love for the complex – we’re a deep tech company going for care after all
  • 5+ years of hands-on experience working with robotic hardware, profound understanding of all aspects that influence control, from sensing to actuation
  • 5+ years development experience with C++ and Python
  • Solid understanding and extensive hands-on experience with:
    • ROS/2
    • Linux 
    • Jetson platforms
    • git & CI workflows
  • Solid understanding and hands-on experience with:
    • robot kinematics & dynamics
    • control algorithms (force, impedance, MPC, etc.)
    • communication protocols (CAN, I2C, SPI, etc.)
  • Existing authorization to work in Germany
  • You are no asshole

Nice to Have

  • Understanding and hands-on experience with
    • MuJoCo, pyBullet
    • Unity 3D, Unreal Engine
    • Confluence & Jira
    • Agile software development

What to Expect

  • A team that values trust, ownership, play-curiosity, impact, care and simplicity
  • Competitive salary
  • Highly motivating employee stock options plan (ESOP)
  • Flexible work hours schedule
  • On-site work with the office in the heart of Munich
