What We Do

Gecko Robotics is helping the world’s most important organizations ensure the availability, reliability, and sustainability of critical infrastructure. Gecko's complete and connected solutions combine wall-climbing robots, industry-leading sensors, and an AI-powered data platform to provide customers with a unique window into the current and future health of their physical assets. This enables real-time decision making to increase the efficiency and safety of operations, promote mission readiness, and protect the environment and civilization from the effects of infrastructure failure.

Role at a Glance

Gecko Robotics is an engineering led culture that keeps engineers close to the hard problems our customers need solved. We are looking for a backend engineer to join our mission-critical Data Systems team. The Data Systems team builds pipelines that translate raw data from our robots into insights utilized by both software and humans. In this role you will use tools like Python, Airflow, and various cloud services to support data collection and analysis every time Gecko's robots are deployed in the field. Looking forward, you will work on projects such as processing new data from our latest robotic advancements, as well as integrating pipelines for new 3rd party robotic data for the first time.

What you will do

As a Software Engineer, you will work on a highly collaborative team to design, code, and ship the features that unlock insights and value from the huge volumes of data collected by Gecko robots everyday. Your work will bridge multiple data layers to determine infrastructure reliability worldwide through our transformative Cantilever software, which directly impacts critical maintenance and repair decision making. The software team works collaboratively with other members to build features that make it easy to transform and use data across the organization, as well as better serve the needs of our customers. You will work cross functionally with our Forward Deployed Engineering team to enable data-driven decision making and clean reporting, build new aspects and improve the structure of our existing data, and create the foundation that future software tools will be built upon.

Technologies We Use

We use a variety of technologies, but we primarily operate using Python, React, and Typescript with Google Cloud Platform (GCP) as our cloud provider. This is a non-exhaustive list and we are tech agnostic in our interview process, so we encourage you to apply regardless of your background.
