ANYbotics is a fast-growing tech company dedicated to shaping the future of mobile robotics across multiple industries. Join our highly talented and motivated team of more than 100 people and work on cutting-edge robot technology.

The Opportunity

We are looking for a Test Automation Engineer to collaborate closely with our Systems & Behavior team to push the boundaries of robot reliability. You will build and maintain test infrastructures for simulation- and hardware-in-the- loop testing to identify and fix defects early in the development cycle. Together with a group of test automation engineers you'll take Full Responsibility to be a key driver in building upon our modern CI/CD pipeline, a state-of-the-art simulation environment and three big testing spaces at our offices. With your expert knowledge in software quality assurance and test automation, you enable our software developers to rigorously test their contributions (testing new features on the robot and writing tests is one of their core responsibilities). Join our software engineering Ateam and Build the Future of Robotics.

The Market & Our Technology

ANYbotics transforms industrial plants in the energy, process, and utility sector by introducing robotics to a wide range of novel applications that so far were beyond reach. Our customers are large asset operators and industrial service providers pioneering the use of robotics technology for inspection and maintenance. Our mobile robot ANYmal uses legs for extreme mobility in complex environments, camera- and LIDAR-based sensing for full autonomy and obstacle avoidance, and AI for high-quality and consistent inspection results. We develop numerous customized hardware systems, including the entire robotic platform, actuators, sensors, inspection payloads, charging systems, and all related ANYbotics mechanical hardware.

Your Contributions
 Drive the ongoing transition from manual to automated testing for fast, high-quality software releases
 Support the engineering teams with your expert knowledge in testing and automation
 Extend our hardware-in-the-loop testing framework integrated into our CI/CD pipeline
 Write and maintain test software to automate test execution, data collection and data analysis
 Help maintain and extend the testing facilities at ANYbotics
Your Profile:
 Engineering or science education (Bachelor's, Master's, or doctorate)
 Strong background in software quality assurance and excellent knowledge of test automation
 Experience in hardware-in-the-loop testing of mechatronic systems (e.g. building test benches)
 Proficient with Linux and common tools
 Good command of Python scripting
 Excellent communication skills in English
Bonus Points:
 You have a passion for robots, a "get it done" attitude and aren't afraid of hands-on tasks when needed (e.g help 3D print/screw a testing setup, write a cool script)
 Experience with continuous integration tools (e.g. GitlabCI, Jenkins), C++ and ROS is a plus
 Good knowledge of unit testing frameworks (e.g. gtest, pytest)

We offer you a very exciting and dynamic work environment, the opportunity to become part of a fast-growing company and an ambitious team that is on a mission to change the industrial inspection market, a chance to leverage your experience and bring in your own ideas, a fair market salary, an attractive employee stock ownership plan, and a job in the city of Zurich.

About the employer

ANYbotics was founded in 2016 as a spin-off from ETH Zurich with the goal to commercialize the technology behind the quadrupedal robot ANYmal. The founding team consisted of Samuel Bachmann, Remo Diethelm, ETH Zurich, Péter Fankhauser, Hanspeter Fässler, Christian Gehring, Marco Hutter, Andreas Lauber, and Roland Siegwart.

Starting as a Wyss Zurich project, the team quickly expanded and recorded first sales in 2017. In a milestone project, a first offshore deployment of ANYmal was accomplished in 2018. In 2019, ANYbotics moved to their new offices in Zurich and announced their new ANYmal C robot.

The ANYbotics team has been building quadrupedal robots since 2009. Each year, the robot prototypes gained in maturity, autonomy, and reliability to move from a research project to a fully functioning demonstrator. With the first commercial requests at hand, the team founded ANYbotics to develop legged robots for real-world applications.
