Job Description


High performance robotic solutions are being delivered at an ever-decreasing cost and we are genuinely reaching a tipping point. From stock-checking and infrastructure inspection to moving material around offices, hospitals or construction sites; the business case for using a robot is starting to make sense and companies developing new commercial applications are emerging every day.

WA is looking to get onto the global map with a greenfields pilot project that has just kicked off that will explore the opportunities for the application of autonomous mobility technology in an urban environment. Ambitious in nature, this project will investigate all aspects of self-drive technology, from hardware and software to spot opportunities in the development of the technology.

This role will be on a 6 month contract initially with possibility of extensions.

My Client:

Our client is one of Perth’s largest enterprises, already at the forefront of automation technology and is teaming up with a Research and Development division uniting their current knowledge of autonomous mining delivery with future robotics to deliver a one of a kind pilot solution that will change the future.

Role Overview:

Throughout 2019 as the pilot progresses, you will be a key member of the engineering team working closely with stakeholders and will ensure our solutions delight them at the technical level resolving issues quickly and feeding back opportunities as they arise. You will provide a crucial link between technical and commercial functions.
