Robotic Systems Engineer

Atlanta, GA  Full-Time

Greenzie’s mission is to free humans from manual labor. We’re starting with the hardest tasks first — highly repetitive outdoor work in the green industry: lawn maintenance, turf mowing, landscaping. We are hiring software roboticists who want to do applied robotics, now.  We build software to do real work.  Join our Team.

As a Robotic Systems Engineer you will:

  • Develop new hardware for our autonomous outdoor robotics platform.
  • Interface with our manufacturing partners to take our prototype design into mass production.
  • Create complete documentation for robotic systems.
  • Participate in daily stand-ups, weekly sprint planning, retrospectives, and roadmap planning
  • Build a great company: it’s up to you how involved you want to be.  We are an open book and share the experience of building a company from customer discovery to sales to marketing, you can participate and learn all aspects of business.


As a candidate you already:

  • Have experience developing and evaluating mechatronic systems
  • Have experience using prototyping tools: small hand tools, electronics bench, etc.
  • Know how use CAD software for mechanical (Solidworks) and/or electrical design (KiCad/Eagle)
  • An analytical mind
  • Are familiar with C++, Python, or other programming languages
  • Desire to free humans from hard, manual labor

You might also (nice to have):

  • Have flashed a microcontroller with code you've written
  • Have used the Robotic Operating System (ROS)
  • Have mowed a lawn or two
  • Appreciate a results-based, startup culture

We have big goals, but try to zoom out on high-level initiatives when appropriate to get day to day work, week to week planning, and big quarterly projects done.  

You can expect an on-boarding process involving safety training (we’re big on safety), some mindful “brain dumps,” and space and time to learn and figure out how to work best. We seek to provide feedback quickly and often, we praise publicly, and deliver critical feedback privately. You can expect to be given meaningful work, to take ownership of features, processes, and to deliver working code and product. We are in this for the long haul. We need your help.


We benchmark our pay against Atlanta employers and offer competitive equity plans for new employees.

Benefits at Greenzie are based on helping you maintain a healthy and happy life outside of work. We believe we can only work as well as we treat our health -- so we encourage employees to take advantage of our generous vacation and leave policies.

We have office space in West Midtown, but as a Result-Only Work Environment, we support getting your work done however and wherever works best and pay for whatever hardware setup works best for you. MacBook Pro? Sure! Slick ThinkPad running Ubuntu? Absolutely.

This is all on top of best-in class health plans (medical, dental, and vision), retirement matching, as well as employer paid long and short term disability, and life insurance policies.

We practice open book on how we run the company, from our salary leveling charts outlining how we compensate, to our last funding round, to our cash burn and latest pitch deck.


Please apply using the button below, so we can be fair to everyone who applies.

We used to do interviewing wrong and would talk about us and our mission and get excited about everything we’re doing -- and learn nothing about you, so now we do the opposite. It may seem one-way to start, but we really want to learn about you. We’ll do a telephone pre-screen with open-ended questions meant to understand how you think and to evaluate your fit for the role.

If you’re not a fit, we’ll let you know immediately, and deliver some feedback right away. If you make it to the next step, we’ll then invite you to do a skills test we'll review (well, a few of us will). Then we will schedule an in-person (or video for those who are remote) interview. Interviews will include a few staff and some more open-ended questions. No white boarding, no puzzles. If you make it to the next step, we’ll ask for some references, and make an offer based on our leveling charts.  We’ll fight hard to get you to join us. But first, we need to hear from you.
