Java Software Engineer

At Bossa Nova we create service robots for the global retail industry. Our robots’ mission is to make large scale stores run efficiently by automating the collection and analysis of on-shelf inventory data. We drive autonomously through aisles, navigating safely among customers and store associates. If we were a self- driving car we’d be operating at level 5 autonomy.

Oh, we should add, it’s real, happening today, you can meet our robots in some of the world’s biggest retailers.

Position: Java Software Engineer

Location: Pittsburgh

You’ll be joining our customer integration team as a java data engineer and be responsible for the creation of API’s and tools to provide data collected from field robots as custom solutions to our customers. You will work daily with Roboticist's, Data Scientists and our customers to understand the data and requirements for delivery.
