Robotics Software Engineer

With the recent intensification of the global space race, the demand for task execution in space is rapidly increasing. 
GITAI applies the general-purpose autonomous space robotics technology, know-how, and experience to develop extra-vehicular robotics (EVR) that can execute docking, repair, and maintenance tasks for On-Orbit Servicing (OOS) or conduct various activities for lunar base construction and exploration.
In 2040, GITAI will be an equal partner with the world’s leading space launch companies providing affordable and safe means of labor to build cities and space colonies on the moon and Mars.

The Robotics Software Engineer is responsible for developing software for integrated robotic systems that perform everything from object and environment recognition using image sensors to motion planning for robotic arm manipulators in collaboration with other teams.



1.   Software Development for Robotic Systems
Develop software for integrated robotic systems that perform everything from object and environment recognition using image sensors to motion planning for robotic arm manipulators. Development is conducted by experimenting with actual robots. 
2.   Collaboration with Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Teams
GITAI has a high rate of in-house production, and we conduct everything from mechanical design of robots to the development of electrical circuits in-house. We collaborate with other teams to develop robots with high performance.
3.   Research and examination for proposal activities
GITAI conducts research on conventional technologies and examines system design, and supports business activities to propose services that use robots in the space environment, which is a new field, to customers.
