About Gecko Robotics

Every year $2 Trillion is spent due to infrastructure failure in the energy sector. Gecko has developed wall-climbing robots and predictive software that dramatically reduce these failures.

We Make products for human-driven analysis of real-world data.

About the role

Who We Are

The mission of Gecko Robotics is to protect today’s critical infrastructure, and give form to tomorrow’s: refineries, power plants, heavy manufacturing facilities, vessels, water storage, and many more. We accomplish this through our robotics platforms in tandem with our enterprise software solutions, creating a virtuous cycle of data acquisition, processing, analysis, and decision-making. Our robots operate in some of the most dangerous industrial environments, collecting data of unprecedented value and magnifying the contributions of human experts, while keeping them out of harm’s way. Gecko is uniquely poised to maximize both the production and the useful life of the assets we rely on to meet the world's energy needs.


Job at a Glance

Our multidisciplinary electrical team designs, develops, and integrates the hardware, firmware, infrastructure, and software systems our robots.

The Integration Engineer is responsible for ensuring the product functions are successfully achieved by the integrated subsystems as they interact in the context of the whole system through the product cycle and after  launch. In this role, the engineer will be responsible for one or more functional areas of the system and be part of the electrical team while integrating with electrical and other engineering teams.

What You Will Do

  • Support the bring-up and debugging of complex systems involving a network of microcontrollers, microprocessors, and electromechanical components for prototype robot systems.
  • Understand and debug interfaces and interactions required for successful integration of Gecko systems.
  • Work with design engineers on the electrical team and throughout the engineering organization to ensure the relevant subsystems are designed with appropriate requirements, interfaces, and interactions to achieve specific system functions.
  • Support new Hardware and Firmware integration into prototype systems by carrying out functional verification of new components and/or features.
  • Support the system validation and verification of system level Hardware and Software features before and after release.
  • Report and track issues with Software and Hardware releases.
  • Able to perform diagnostics and debug issues before bringing in relevant design engineers when needed.
  • Able to support the creation of system level requirements and work with others to develop early system prototypes to de-risk new technologies.
