We believe there are many problems in the world in which robotics could play a significant role in making it easier, faster and safer for people to get things done. We’re looking for roboticists, designers, hardware and software engineers to help us explore these possibilities, develop breakthrough technologies, and build new products that could help millions of people.

As a robotics engineer trained in Machine Learning, you possess strong C/C++ skills, and are excited about making robots significantly more capable than they are today at performing useful tasks in real environments. In a team of software engineers, roboticists, and control engineers, you are expected to develop systems to allow robots to perceive and understand the environment as well as learn new tasks easily.

X is a moonshot factory where uncomfortably ambitious, potentially world-changing new ideas such as self-driving cars, balloon-powered Internet and smart contact lenses are developed and taken out into the world. X projects have the potential to transform the lives of billions of people and make the world a radically better place. We’re a team of makers, entrepreneurs, engineers and scientists with deep technical expertise who love the challenge of the seemingly impossible. X was formerly known as Google[x].
