Parties across the entire solar lifecycle use Raptor Maps’ data model to manage ever growing utility-scale solar portfolios. We are an industry leader with hundreds of customers, including owners, builders, operators, and aerial service providers, across over 45 countries with 200+ million solar panels under management. Our software platform is essential in the fight against climate change.

Raptor Maps is looking for a talented full-time Robotics Software Engineer to develop code, connect, and deploy drones and robots in the solar industry. This role works at a fast, startup pace and is multi-faceted as well as cross-functional. The role will push you outside your comfort zone by combining software engineering skills with real-world conditions.

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Computer Science, or equivalent.
  • 2+ years of professional experience building software(e.g. Python, Java, Javascript, or equivalent)
  • Hands on experience with commercial-off-the-shelf robots or drones(DJI, Spot, FANUC, etc).
  • Experience with modern web software frameworks, APIs, and database systems(e.g. React, SQL, GraphQL)
  • Experience with Linux based systems
  • Unbiased Problem Solver - You can learn anything if you put your mind to it. You’ve demonstrated the ability to pull inspiration from a variety of fields to solve problems and separate the signal from the noise.
  • Intellectual curiosity & drive - You love learning new things fast and staying up to speed on new technology. You’re self-motivated, focused, and are satisfied making an impact.
  • Ability to work both individually and collaboratively within a team environment
  • Strong communication skills
  • Must be primarily located in the contiguous US
  • Must be authorized to work in the US

All Raptor Maps Team Members Have:

  • Complete ownership and accountability over their role and success in the team.
  • Transparency into the operations of the rest of the company and are expected to be transparent and communicate honestly and effectively.
  • A sense of urgency. We are tackling a global problem, working in a fast-paced industry, and building a once in a lifetime company at Raptor Maps.

Benefits Raptor Maps is a remote-first company with employees across the country and headquarters at Greentown Labs in Boston, MA. Team members are free to work anywhere in the lower 48 states. A few remote benefits include:
