Robotic Mastermind Needed
Here at Neo-Pangea, we have a passion for fun, research, hacking, and technology, and we follow those guiding stars wherever they take us. One area in which we need assistance is at the intersection of these principles - practical robotics. With the advent of Arduino and Phidgets programmable microcontrollers and plug-and-play components, open-source electronics has been democratized to wildly creative effect. Now we are looking for a team member or reliable partner to help us break some new ground and see how much joy cold calculating steel can bring.
If you're thinking that this sounds like something you'd be interested in helping us with, please ask yourself the following questions, then write down the answers and send them to us.
- What is your background, specifically as it applies to robotics, Arduino, and Phidgets development? How much experience do you have making robots with these components, or from other platforms (Lego Mindstorm, custom ones, etc.)? List technologies, years of experience, relevant degrees, competitions, clubs, etc. and please explain.
- What programming languages do you use to interface with your robotic minions? What other languages are you familiar with?
- Are you currently under any non-compete or exclusivity contracts that would keep you from helping us fulltime or on the side?
Thanks much for your time, and we hope to meet you soon!
Please send us links to photos or descriptions of your work online, or as PDF, and describe your role and capabilities. Be warned! — vague work or giant word document attachments don't help anyone.
We're open to part-time or full-time employees with experience. You must be authorized to work in the US and we don't want to hear from recruiters.
A little about us...
Neo-Pangea is a digital boutique that grows beautiful ideas into captivating experiences. Nestled in hills abutting the historic railroad town of Reading, Pennsylvania, our digital creative boutique has transformed innovative concepts into tangible applications for brands and causes across the globe.
Our inspiration is torn from the pages of a tattered book, born from a lively conversation and sparked by sketches on the back of a hand. We find that ideas move people and aren't handcuffed by trends or fads.
Creativity, empathy, strategy, and technology fuse to create immersive campaigns and platforms. Our triumphs ascend from a combination of our collaborative yet individualistic attitudes, energetic atmosphere, and commitment to research and development. We're a complex league with versatile creative and technical expertise, polished by decades of experience. While we can be quite verbose, our on-going focus on learning, teaching, and living keeps us humble.
If you meet these qualifications and are intrigued by the awesome, submit your work to [email protected]! We look forward to seeing your work and meeting you. If you submit and we don't contact you, please don't contact us until this opportunity is posted again.
