About Coco

Coco is building the world's first mass market robotics company, beginning with sidewalk delivery robots. We deploy mobile ground robots in cities to create a cleaner, safer, and more accessible last-mile logistics solution.

About the Team

We’re a close-knit team, passionate about making on-demand delivery a better experience for customers, employees, and the community.

Coco is a venture-backed and early stage startup, so the environment here is high-energy, dynamic, and exciting. You’ll be working with top-performers with experience at the fastest-growing operations startups in the world. If you’re collaborative, energetic, have a competitive spirit, and love working in teams, you’re going to feel right at home.

About You

You’re a Robotics Engineer excited by making the type of critical engineering decisions that ensure sustainable, explosive growth at a VC-backed startup. You’re highly collaborative, and enjoy working on a diverse set of projects and shipping quality Robot Hardware and Software fast with a small, agile (and Agile) team.

You’re a great Robotics Engineer with industry-proven experience building Delivery Robot system, a good understanding of startup priorities (e.g. speed over perfection), and the ability to communicate well across teams.

About the Role

As a Robotics Engineer, you’ll focus on developing a reliable outdoor mobile robot with reliable performance. Your main goal is to develop robot hardware that enables the operations team to operate more efficiently. You’ll contribute to the continuous improvement of the robot hardware and software fitting in our backend platform seamlessly. It is critical you are able to communicate well with each team to determine requirements for each project.

Your Responsibilities

  • Proven ability to drive innovation in the engineering conceptualization stages by pushing technology limits on both hardware and software subsystem, while balancing feasibility criteria such as manufacturability, cost, technology risk, implementation schedule

  • Bias for action and delivering result, focusing on technical aspects of robotics R&D development, debug code and solve technical issues

  • Manage key components and Robot system testing to ensure Robot reliability, consistency and robustness

  • Leverage your expertise, creativity and robotics skill to help the project meet on time delivery in NPI stage

  • Support continuous improvement of existing products; support fielded products; perform analysis of field-reported issues and provide solutions

  • Develop CAD drawings for rapid part prototyping and final product design

Your Experience

  • Minimum 7 years full-time work experience in Robotics industry and lead or participate more than 3 robot projects before

  • Experience with battery pack, motor, motion control and sensor fusion is highly preferred

  • 3+ years’ experience in an Electrical Engineering role involving the design and development of embedded hardware and firmware development

  • Experience with Mobile robotics obstacle avoidance system (LiDAR, Stereo Camera, Ultrasonic Sensor, Sensor fusion etc.)

  • Good knowledge of Design processes, including DFMEA, FEA, CFD, DFM etc.

  • Experience in mechanical design: 3D CAD proficiency, material, plastic injection molding, die-casting, sheet metal, machining processes, and assembly processes

  • Experience in electrical design: component selection, system architecture and documentation

  • Expert Level experiences with ROS including coding & developing robotics products, drivers and/or controller in ROS

  • Strong programming skills in Python or C/C+ and familiar with Golang, and/or Node.js.

  • Experience with NoSQL Databases (MongoDB)

Your Education Background

  • B.S. is required and M.S. is preferred in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Mechatronics (or equivalent)
