  • Work with a small, fast-moving engineering team to integrate image and depth sensing, environmental sensing, and electrical support systems for our robotic systems
  • Design board sets to implement better interconnects and faster board to board communications
  • Implement firmware and low level software for included components
  • Work with hardware synchronization of sensors and signals in a robotic environment
  • Design battery system to fit mission needs of the robotic harvester

What we’re looking for

  • 3+ years experience in design-to-commercialization of electrical system design
  • B.S. Electrical Engineering or relevant degree required
  • Prior experience with robotic applications and complex custom board solutions including high frequency circuits and noise reduction is a plus

  • Startup experience is a major plus

About Tortuga

Tortuga AgTech’s mission is to build a healthier society, and a thriving ecosystem, through smarter farming. We’re pursuing our mission by building robotic harvesting and precision analytics systems for the world’s leading fresh produce growers (delicious things like strawberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and herbs). We’re building not just because it’s fun, but because we believe thoughtful, well-built advanced technology can help farmers grow healthier, fresher, more environmentally sustainable produce for everyone. We’re backed by some of the most respected early-stage investors in Silicon Valley, as well as ag industry veterans.

Tortuga means “turtle” in Spanish. Around the world, turtles are symbols of wisdom, patience, and connection to the Earth. We’re proud to be based in Denver, CO - America’s 2nd best place to live according to U.S. News (but does Austin have any mountains? We still think we’re #1).
