Boston Dynamics, a leading developer of high mobility robots, and the maker of Atlas, Spot Mini, Handle and other innovative walking machines, seeks an experienced mechanical engineer to help create the next generation of astounding and practical mobile robots.  

We are currently looking for great mechanical engineers who are passionate about robotics, iterative design, and prototyping. Successful candidates would join a team devoted to producing extremely high-quality hardware, and a research culture that embraces collaboration.  


  • Collaborate with other engineers to dream up, develop and prototype robots.
  • Design, build and iterate on robotics platforms to solve identified uses.
  • Develop and analyze trade-offs in design while evaluating constraints from multiple disciplines (electrical design, manufacturing, business needs)
  • Create models, drawings, and specifications for parts and assemblies
  • Work with suppliers to solve manufacturing challenges and improve designs
  • Troubleshoot issues, determine root causes, design and implement corrective and preventative solutions.


In addition to exceptional demonstrated hands-on design skills, we are looking for experience in at least several of the following areas:

  • Advanced SolidWorks user, or equivalent
  • Finite element analysis, design optimization
  • High-performance hydraulics
  • Fluid and electro-mechanical actuators and sensors
  • Articulated mechanism design with custom actuation and sensing

We require a BSME or MSME degree plus 1-5 years of relevant experience.  The ideal candidate will have played a central role in the creation of articulated mechanisms using custom joint design, actuation, and sensing.  Likely relevant industrial experience includes the fields of robotics, medical devices, aircraft and aerospace, and automotive design.
