Machine Learning Researcher

Boston Dynamics is seeking Machine Learning Researchers that are interested in building perception and adaptive control systems that improve the performance, reliability, and generalizability of robot behaviors. Well-qualified candidates will have a Ph.D. in Computer Science, or a related field, and have prior work that demonstrates an ability to creatively apply modern machine learning algorithms to real-world problems. We are particularly interested in candidates with 1) experience using ML for visual perception or 2) experience applying reinforcement learning (RL) to dynamic control tasks. Masters-level candidates with strong experience will also be considered.

Day to day activities include:

  • Comfortable writing and debugging C++ and Python Code
  • Design of relevant feature sets for data collection and training
  • Experience implementing and debugging ML algorithms
  • Familiarity with available machine learning toolkits (e.g., Tensorflow)
  • Experience with applications of machine learning to visual data OR experience applying modern RL algorithms to dynamic control tasks

Desired skills:

  • Application of machine learning to 3D data sets
  • Familiarity with cloud-based API's
  • Experience with robot systems and autonomy
  • Familiarity with graphics programming
