Do you want to build a next generation system for enhancing human perception? Can you imagine a future where humans and machines work in concert to create a better world? We can. Come build it with us.

Proprio is a Seattle startup developing a system for real-time immersive video and mediated reality interaction. We develop cutting edge algorithms and custom hardware to enhance human capabilities in high precision activities such as spine and brain surgery.

The ideal candidate has excellent problem solving skills and is not afraid of a challenge. Our goal is ambitious. The consequences of success are lasting improvements for society. We are serious about pushing the technological envelope to solve real-world deficiencies.

Candidates should be familiar with C++ and Matlab and be comfortable working with vetted development techniques that prioritize code quality over quantity.

At Proprio, you’ll enjoy the ability to greatly influence product design, work across multiple domains, and have a voice in developing our culture. We value diversity in all forms and have at our core a strong sense of ethics and what it means to be a company actively pursuing social good. Our team works closely with leading medical and research institutions and has a deep background in neurosurgery, medical devices, entrepreneurship, robotics, and computer vision.

Examples of relevant experience:

  • Image-guided robotic systems (ideally surgical). 
  • Control of multi-link, 6+ DoF robotic arms such as UR or similar
  • Programming tasks such as motion planning, pick and place, SLAM. The best candidates will have experience using RGBD sensors and optical tracking to guide robot motion.
  • Robotic arm simulation and state estimation (kinematics, dynamics, control theory, sensor fusion)
  • Design of human safe and collaborative robotic systems
  • Learning techniques for robotic control such as reinforcement learning
  • Worked on production level solutions that have successfully been deployed. 

Preferred experience in coding languages:

  • C++
  • C#
  • Matlab
  • ROS (or other message-passing frameworks)
  • Python (other scripting language experience is appreciated)
