Senior Backend Developer at Starship Technologies
Tallinn, EE / Helsinki, FI
Starship Technologies is developing the future of delivery – self-driving robots that bring parcels, groceries and food to people around the world.
We have entered commercial pilots with hundreds of robots driving along sidewalks across the United States and four countries in Europe. Soon we hope there will be thousands of delivery robots around the world.
Servers are where much of the magic happens. Fleet management, routing robots to customers over the most optimal paths, solving escalations from robots, third party partners and mapping. Also working with telemetry to ensure robots are always at their full health and we always know what’s going on first. Handling robots is a broad challenge – one that combines near real-time systems and more traditional entity management, reliable network connectivity and offline prediction of faults, route optimization and customer delivery flows… and a lot more.
If you feel comfortable with some of these topics then we should talk!
