As Senior Robot Destroyer at Automata you are very good at destroying things in a very precise, analytical and methodical way. This job will not be easy - you will break what others will build - often making you the bearer of bad news. You will be critical of others work, but also constructive. You are good at taking a complex product like our robot, understand it’s applications and design a test plan in the context of time and resources available. You are a planner and executor rolled into one - you can design a test plan, design the jigs and tests, and then even get them built and get them up and running. And if that wasn’t enough, you can also grow your team and recruit additional expertise to augment you as the diversity of skill sets required to destroy our robots grows.

This is what it’s gonna take:

* Making a test plan is a critical part of the job - the ability to estimate the complexity of a test well will be critical to your success
* You are a skilled planner, but you can also tinker enough in CAD, Labview, a few IDEs and do enough hardware to design and set up these tests
* You’re good at resource planning - you know when things look too (un)ambitious and adjust people and times accordingly
* You’re good at visualising edge-cases - you have to find all sorts of strange and weird ways our robots can be broken
* You are a skeptic by nature and hard to please - you test everything
* Ideally you have tested electromechanical devices/components before
