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

Be the first frontline PM hire for Cantilever, Gecko’s new software platform that is transforming the protection and maintenance of our civilization’s critical infrastructure by enabling deep analysis of machine-scale sensor data. This role will primarily work with Boston-based engineering teams building Cantilever’s foundational platform for a variety of internal and external users.

What you will do

You’ll build new products including systems to manage the acquisition and processing of robotic sensor data and applications that let users interact with virtual asset models to design and prioritize actions that improve the health of critical infrastructure. You’ll own setting the vision (“what to build and why”) at varied zoom levels and timescales, and partner with engineering and design to execute in the details and ensure the delivery of excellent products that significantly impacts Gecko’s business.

You’ll work with both internal and external users: forward-deployed engineering teams building on the Cantilever platform, internal operators (robot drivers and industry experts), and external users (e.g. customer engineers charged with maintaining critical software). You’ll travel frequently to colocate with engineers and understand user workflows in the context of the physical infrastructure sites that Gecko protects.
