Full-Stack Research Engineer (Robotic Learning)

Zurich, Switzerland | office/hybrid | full-time | earliest start: February 2024

faive robotics is an early stage deep tech robotics & AI start-up based in Zurich and supported by leading VCs. We give industry workers a helping hand for tedious manual labour tasks and mitigate labour shortages with a versatile automation platform. Our automation solutions driven by dexterous robotic hands and cutting edge AI trained on human observations bring a new level of AI embodiment to the real world.


As a Full-Stack Research Engineer (Robotic Learning) you will develop infrastructure for simulation, teleoperation, learning and deployment in the context of robotic manipulation. You will shape all aspects of the development of a foundational AI model for robotics, from large scale data collection and preprocessing to automated model evaluation on the real world robot, resulting in co-authored cutting edge research. As an early employee, you will fill in the shoes of both a data engineer and a machine learning scientist in close contact with the founders, to then take on a senior role once the team expands further.



  • Build infrastructure for data collection, storage and preprocessing for imitation learning on robots

  • Train deep learning models and quickly iterate over architecture design and parameters

  • Work closely with the Hardware & Controls team to ensure efficient and stable deployment of the models on real world robots



  • Master’s Degree in Computer Science, Data Science or equivalent

  • 1+ years of relevant work experience or equivalent

  • Familiarity with theoretical basics of deep learning and statistics

  • Experience with at least one deep learning framework (Pytorch, JAX, TF, etc)

  • Experience with developing and maintaining Python code


Nice to have

  • Robotics and ROS experience

  • Authored papers in machine learning, deep learning or robotic learning in leading conferences (NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, CVPR, CoRL, etc)

  • Experience in open source software development

  • Experience in training large scale foundation models (vision models, large language models, generative models) with distributed multi-GPU setups


Compensation & Benefits

  • We offer a total compensation package including a competitive yearly base salary and a strong stock option package to make you part of our shared success.

  • You will work with the founders from day one, shaping the company and participating in its success from its very beginning


At faive robotics you will have the opportunity to shape a robotics & AI company from the ground up. In flat hierarchies you will work directly with the founders and some of the best talents in the robotics space. At faive, you are accepted for who you are. As part of our ongoing journey towards creating a diverse and inclusive environment we encourage everyone to apply and we are looking forward to you bringing along your knowledge, personal experiences, and fresh perspectives. Together we can solve some of the greatest challenges in robotics.
