Robotics and Digital Solutions, part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies, is recruiting for a Senior Robotics Controls Engineer. This position is located in Santa Clara, CA.

At Johnson & Johnson Robotics and Digital Solutions, we're changing the trajectory of health for humanity, using robotics to enhance healthcare providers’ abilities and improve diagnoses, treatments, and recovery times for patients. Johnson & Johnson Robotics was established in 2020 with the integration of Auris Health, Verb Surgical, C-SATS, and Ethicon. It comprises three key med-tech platforms: Flexible Robotics (MONARCH®), Surgical Robotics (OTTAVA™) and Digital Solutions. Join our collaborative, rapidly growing teams based in the San Francisco Bay Area (Redwood City and Santa Clara), Cincinnati, and Seattle. You'll collaborate on breakthrough medical technologies that unite multiple subject areas to build a connected digital ecosystem that advances medical professionals’ skills and improves patient outcomes.

The Senior Robotics and Controls Engineer plays a key role in the development of the Ottava robotic surgical platform. The candidate will understand the system from both a technical perspective and the user’s viewpoint, and contribute algorithms and software implementations that ultimately drive definition and development of Robotics and Digital Solutions. We will set a new industry benchmark for robotic surgical capability. We are looking for a candidate who can work independently and function well within a team. The candidate is flexible, self-motivated, curious and passionate about revolutionizing the world of medical robotics. Additionally, the Senior Robotics and Controls Engineer, works closely with other team members to control, simulate, and implement robotic systems.
